Stylish American Comedy “Stage Door” Comes to the Ring

The Department of Theatre Arts 2011-2012 season resumes with Stage Door at the Ring Theatre.

Coral Gables (January 30, 2012) — The Department of Theatre Arts 2011-2012 season resumes with Stage Door, which will run February 15-25 at the Jerry Herman Ring Theatre.

Stage Door is a witty and stylish 1937 American comedy centering around a group of aspiring actresses crammed into a theatrical boarding house in Manhattan while awaiting their big break on Broadway’s Great White Way. Stage Door showcases love affairs, betrayals, snappy wisecracks, rejections, drama, despair, and plenty of delicious comedy. The central plot focuses on Terry Randall (Katherine Hepburn in the 1937 film), a stage-struck actress totally driven by her talent and ambition who refuses to be enticed by the money and glamour of the movies. What the other young residents of the boarding house bring to the play is a veritable carnival of memorably eccentric characters. Stage Door is a genuine valentine to the theatre as well as a comic send-up of the Hollywood film industry. The Jerry Herman Ring Theatre production features talented theatre students performing in glamorous period costumes and scenery.

Tickets go on sale Monday, February 6 at noon. Prices: weeknights and matinee general admission $18; seniors and UM faculty, staff, and alumni $16; students $10. Friday and Saturday nights general admission $20; seniors and UM faculty, staff, and alumni $20; students $12. For more information visit www.as.miami.edu/theatrearts/ring.html.
