How You Can Help

As we weather this “intermission” together, our artists, artisans, staff and crew need your help. If you are able, please consider making a gift to the Intermission Campaign, which directly supports the livelihood of our Goodman family. Thanks to the generous support of our Board, all additional, increased and new gifts will be matched. Thank youwe can't wait to be with you for the next act.

    In this time of social distancing, adults 55+ are particularly impacted. It is especially important to us to offer a way they can stay connected.

    This week, participants of GeNarrations, our storytelling and performance workshop for this community, tuned in to free virtual classes facilitated by Goodman teaching artists. These classes will continue online until students are able to safely meet in person again.

    Next week, we'll share some of their incredible work with you.
