Do yourself a big favor and see this show before it closes! I have been to several M-A productions and this one rates way, WAY up there. The whole thing comes across beautifully, and several individual performances are outstanding. Set and costumes are wonderful, too. Plenty of laughs, heartache, life changes, friendship, love...it's all here in one very entertaining package. (And no, I do not have a child in the show!)

This is an impressive production, not even considering that it's a high school show. I went with a friend and I'm so glad I didn't miss this. The M-A theater is so gorgeous for one thing. The drama department made full use of it with a complicated set design, good sound and effects, and fantastic period costumes. It would have been good to hear some of the actors a little better but that's a small thing, and I was so impressed with a few key performances that they more than made up for any lack. Really this is a show not to miss! I think there's one more final show tomorrow night, Saturday, November 12th at 7:30. Go if you can! You'll be glad you did!

What a privilege to attend the final performance of "Stage Door" last night, a show which by ANY standards has been an impressive production since its opening ten days ago. Bravo to the entire cast and crew! You brought Broadway in the 1930's absolutely alive with credible costuming, set design, characterization and production values, and made it look easy. I was thoroughly entertained. I can't wait to see what you come up with in the Spring with your next production, "Once Upon a Mattress!"
