It was thrilling to see and hear these amazing performers and awesome to hear first hand their stories of how and when they got the call THAT THEY WERE GOING ON!! For some it was their BROADWAY DEBUT. With less than 24 hours notice many of these performers stepped on and in very big shoes and you bet – the shoe fit!! Stephen DeAngelis gives an inside and intimate look at the life and incredible challenges of what it takes to be a standby/understudy on Broadway. This is a fantastic evening of musical A+ talent and an opportunity to see and hear the stars of today and tomorrow. No where else can you get a glimpse into the lives and backgrounds of these unique talents.

Shows are monthly at The Green Room 42
