Fabulous play this is the world premier. 90 min go by in a flash. Funny and humane. Never had a bad play at the Goodman but this play really shines.

We were members at the Goodman Theater for years. Loved every performance but had a conflict with my work schedule. Easy parking and in/out of downtown. I would recommend becoming a member.

Love The Goodman Theatre! Smaller theaters but the highest quality performances. Tickets are reasonable. There are no bad views anywhere you sit. Highly recommended if you love theater, want to see good performances at reasonable prices.

We took a group of 40+ kids to see A Christmas Carol. They absolutely loved it. The theater is beautiful and the actors were amazing. Snacks and drinks were cheap enough and easy to get to. I hope to see many more shows here!
