More About Tonya Meeks' Performance Experience 
Tonya Meek’s bittersweet comedy, Flying Standby, reveals how the determination to escape her alcoholic mother carried her through a turbulent ride of addiction, lost love, and a final reconciliation.

"Tonya has an uncanny ability to transport herself into the characters that she plays. It's pure magic." (Louis Gossett Jr.)
"Flying Standby is a great metaphor to build a show around, and Tonya Meeks' autobiographical solo show is at its best when we see the scattered Meeks, suitcase in hand, caught in that "will I or won't I and where?" place. She gives an appealing, raw performance that's full of love, truth, and humor rather than self-pity." (Backstage)
"I was at the opening of your play last night (with Beverly Berg) WOW! You are fierce! I enjoyed your beautifully nuanced and captivating performance so much!  As a fellow sober woman watching your meticulously examined life unfold before my eyes, I felt bestowed by your generous gift of healing." (DH Olech,k Artist)

"I am recommending to all my clients who are members of the BMC (Bad Mother's Club) to run, not walk to see Tonya Meeks' star-turn in 'Flying Standby.' She will melt your heart and your mind with her brave performance as the Mother and the loyal, but suffering Daughter. Tonya guides us through pain of both women to find to resolution and peace." (Melody J. Anderson (LCSW

"Flying Standby Home is both humorous and heartfelt - and incredibly fun to watch. I was especially moved by Tonya's vulnerability. She reveals her life in a way that embraces the entire (sometimes messy) journey, that you can't help but walk away feeling like you aren't alone, loving yourself a little bit more, and with more hope that the pain can be transformed into something absolutely beautiful." (Ingrid Mathieu, PhD, Therapist, Author)
"We all know life is a journey, but in "Flying Standby", Tonya makes her audience feel like she sneaked us into her suitcase for the trip. Her story is remarkable, and the vulnerability in which she portrays her mother and herself is truly inspiring. I laughed till I cried, and I cried till it hurt. Most importantly, I left with a sense of gratitude for having been allowed on the flight." (BJ Hickman, Executive Director at Hotel California.
