As our stages remain dark, imagination lights the way. Goodman artists, artisans and staff are committed to keeping you connected through unique productions and new programming until we can be together again.
MEET OUR GOODMAN STAFF
Unusual times call for innovation. While remote work and social distance challenge the fundamental human connection at the foundation of our industry, we are moved to create new ways to bring our work to you.
Our School Matinee Series, GeNarrations and InterGens programs continue virtually for hundreds of Chicago participants. Our teacher training and study guides supplement curricular content for Chicago Public Schools students, using A Christmas Carol to explore subjects such as history (the Industrial Revolution in Dickensian London) and science (how do physics enable Scrooge to fly?)
Over the past year, we forged an unprecedented partnership with the Chicago Park District to bring Cheryl L. West's electrifying call-to-action, Fannie Lou Hamer, Speak On It!, to a Chicago neighborhood near you.
Then, three virtual productions arrived in your inbox, starting with Artistic Director Robert Falls' Tony Award-winning 1999 production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman and Artistic Associate Dael Orlandersmith's meditation on race and justice in America, Until the Flood. We were also thrilled to share our reimagining of Charles Dickens' classic tale, A Christmas Carol—An Audio Play, as we ended a year of grief and lost opportunities for so many of us.
We are proud to offer it all free of charge.
Goodman Theatre is “Still Connected” to you, our audience, without whom our work is not possible. To help with the cost of making and streaming plays as well as offering education programs free of charge, we gratefully ask for your support in the form of a charitable contribution.
Please join us in this effort. We are still here. We are still committed. And we are still connected!
