Volume 6

This week in Intermission, we spotlight powerful mothers on and off the stage in honor of Mother’s Day.

    People are the heart and soul of Goodman Theatre. From the actors on stage to the behind-the-scenes artisans to the administrative staffers, it takes a complex network of talent to bring you a memorable theater experience.

    Here, Production Coordinator Amber Porter tells us about being a mother, her newfound hobbies while sheltering-at-home and what it’s like to be part of the Goodman family. Consider supporting the Goodman's artists, artisans, crew and staff with a gift to the Intermission Campaign.
