2018-2019 Season


Artistic Director Robert Falls announces Goodman Theatre’s new 2018/2019 Season—a 14-play line-up of timely, original and inspired works curated by Falls in collaboration with his artistic associates. The new season, which begins in September and continues through July 2019, includes 10 full productions on the Goodman’s stages (856-seat Albert Theatre and 350-seat flexible Owen Theatre) plus three free New Stages developmental productions, and one TBA production TBA staged as part of the Chicago Latino Theater Alliance’s 2018 International Latino Theater Festival. 

“I am thrilled to share our upcoming season—an expansive, relevant collection of works of art that are at once entertaining and challenging, and offer exciting possibilities to engage with our community,” said Robert Falls of the 32nd season he has curated as Artistic Director. “I am particularly proud that more than half of these productions have emerged from our New Stages festival, which continues to be an extraordinary incubator for new plays.”
