A Note from the Director

Charisma is a unique and frankly odd experience. Knowing that the cast and I had near complete control over what we produced and the type of process we had was simultaneously terrifying and exhilarating. On top of that, this has been one of the most unusual processes I have ever had the pleasure to take part in. From the very beginning, this show has required radical flexibility of thoughts, plans, and ideas. But that is part of what has made it so rewarding. Nothing has been ordinary, nothing normal. But as a result, we have made Standing By that we hope inspires you to look at the ordinary and see the extraordinary within it. To explore the idea that the everyday can be special.
