Staff Profile: Dorlisa Martin

This is the second installment in our staff profiles series, a collection of interviews with the people who work behind the scenes here at the Goodman. For this profile we were lucky to grab a moment with one of our busiest staff members, Director of Development Dorlisa Martin. The Goodman is a nonprofit organization, and we rely on independent and government grants, as well as corporate and individual sponsorships, to supplement our ticket sales to keep the theater thriving. That’s where Dorlisa and her team come in, advocating for the art and fostering relationships.

Goodbye Red Hot, Hello Something Wild

With a sad farewell the Goodman 2011/2012 Season came to a close on Sunday with the final performance of Crowns. But then just two days later we welcomed in the 2012/2013 Season with the first rehearsal of Sweet Bird of Youth! Before we jump into the new season with all its rich and exciting content ahead, we wanted to take a minute to look back on a great RED HOT season and remember some of our favorite moments. We put out a call for stories onTwitterFacebook and around the office. Here are some favorites.
