It's often said that there's a broken heart for every light on Broadway. Modeled on the actual Rehearsal Club in Manhattan, this fast paced American classic traces the hopes, dreams and disappointments of aspiring actresses living in the Footlights Club, a popular boarding house for young theatricals. The adventures of these talented young women and their gentlemen callers unfold as we get to know the dancers, actors, and waitresses who are looking for their first big break. Written by Kalamazoo native Edna Ferber and George S. Kaufman, Stage Door offers a wonderfully nostalgic look at the Broadway of a bygone era.
"The glow of the footlights beckons
the young and free."
