Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: An inspiring, if too short and overcrowded, examination of the competition among high schools at the 90th annual Drama Teachers Association of Southern California Shakespeare Festival. – Stephen Holden, New York Times, Mar 8, 2012

Fresh: Alex Rotaru's very busy docu focuses more on the kids' stories than on their work; considering how sensational some of them are, it's probably a strategic advantage. – John Anderson, Variety, Mar 12, 2012

Fresh: It's impossible not to root for these driven, high-spirited participants - and for the longevity of this invaluable program. – Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times, Apr 5, 2012

Fresh: If Shakespeare High lacks the tightness and emotional tension a competition doc needs to take off, we get to know enough of these preternaturally self-assured kids to care about what happens to them beyond the finals. – Michelle Orange, Village Voice, Mar 6, 2012
