Innovative community engagement programs at Goodman Theatre improve the quality of life in Chicago. Nationally recognized as a leader in arts education, the Goodman serves nearly 3,000 students and 5,000 adults each year through our outreach initiatives.
The Goodman is one of Chicago’s premier cultural institutions. As the oldest and largest not-for-profit theater company in Chicago, Goodman Theatre offers unsurpassed quality, range and diversity of productions and programs, and a commitment to improving the quality of life in our community.
New plays are the lifeblood of the American theater. The Goodman's program of new play development—including our annual New Stages series, commissioned works, the Playwrights Unit and world premieres—rejuvenates the American theater. In the past 10 years alone, the Goodman has produced more than 30 new plays, many of which have moved on to successful productions at other national and international stages.
It’s all about the art. Goodman Theatre has been locally, nationally and internationally recognized for the quality of its productions, and is a creative home for artists from a wide range of backgrounds. From lights to set pieces, your dollars make the work you see on our stages possible.
