Stage Door


On Saturday l attended a performance of Stage Door at the Shirley Burke Theatre in Parkdale.

It was performed by Aspect Inc which is a community theatre group. The play is set in 1930's New York and revolves around a rooming house for young inspiring female actors.

Can l say that this was the first, and last, time l will see this play. It was listed as a comedy but l didn't find it funny or that interesting.

Having said that l did like the performance. It was a big cast that played off each other well. I don't know if the accents were authentic New York accents but they were constant throughout.There were a few actors making their debut. Both of them performed well. The staging and costuming looked authentic too.

Although l didn't like this play l would see other productions from Aspect Inc.

What about you? Have any of you seen a production of Stage Door and if you have, what did you think of it?

Stage Door is performing at the Shirley Burke Theatre Parkdale until July 29.
