  • Although Stagedoor has its enjoyable observational moments in its depiction of budding young entertainers stretching their wings, it also has an aimless quality.

  • Shiva's most impressive achievement here is her ability to communicate universal verities through specific details.

  • Watching these pint-sized Lizas resuscitate a dying popular art in a ghost-town vacation resort, you don't know whether to laugh or cry for the loony resilience of the Broadway spirit.

  • Shiva has a sensitive eye for rarefied outcasts.

  • Performing is something [these kids] need to do. And Stagedoor shows them doing it -- blindly, bravely, determinedly.

Audience Reviews for Stagedoor

    I LOVED this movie and I usually don't do documentaries. It's pretty misleading to list all of it's major alumni like they appear in this movie because they don't but I enjoyed it for the drama and tenderness. I have a major soft spot for movies about kids at summer camp. Maybe because I like the relationships between teens.
