Jenna Leigh Green and More to Star in STANDBY, Opening 7/19 at NYMF
Jenna Leigh Green, Eryn Murman, Darren Ritchie and Matt Shingledecker are among the cast of STANDBY which begins performances July 19 as part of the 2013 New York Musical Theatre Festival's Next Link Project.
A musical about making connections, finding love, and traveling on, STANDBY centers on five strangers who meet in an airport standby line and must decide among themselves who deserves to get on the next flight. They soon realize that this is no ordinary airport and their meeting is by no means a coincidence. With a pop-rock score, this musical reminds us how interconnected we are.
The cast includes Dwelvan David (Human Race Theatre's Caroline, or Change), Jenna Leigh Green (Wicked), Alex Goley (TheatreWorks' Big River), Eryn Murman (Spring Awakening), Darren Ritchie (Wonderland, Thoroughly Modern Millie) and Shingledecker (West Side Story).
STANDBY is based on a concept by Alfred Solis. It features a book and lyrics by Mark-Eugene Garcia and Solis, and music is by Amy Baer and Keith Robinson.
The production is directed by Carlos Armesto (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Spring Awakening, The Who's Tommy). Other members of the creative team include choreographer Elisabetta Spuria, scenic designer Patrick Rizzotti, costume designer Jennifer Caprio, lighting designer Jake DeGroot and assistant music director Rob Cookman.
Performances will be held July 19 at 8 PM, July 20 at 1 PM, July 21 at 9 PM, July 23 at 5 PM and July 28 at 5 PM at The Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at The Pershing Square Signature Center, 480 W 42nd St. For more information and tickets, visit StandbyTheMusical.com or NYMF.org.
