We took a scenic ride up the river for dinner at a restaurant near the Opera House. It’s a beautiful historic building. Sadly, during the 2020 season it’s closed due to the Covid scare. We are looking forward to better days ahead when we will be able to enjoy live performances.

Billy Elliot was an exciting and wonderful show done within the confines of a local showhouse. Amazing how the scenery and staging worked like Broadway but within the small space the had to work with. Many times we were all amazed that the cast was able to have so many people on stage, move and dance and sing to our total enjoyment. Worth every minute and every penny we spent to be entertained that well.

Came to see a performance of Billy Elliot at the Goodspeed Opera House, an imposing, beautiful theater in East Haddam, CT. The show was unbelievable. Terrific acting, orchestra, scenery. The downside? We were seated in Row L and had a lot of difficulty seeing the stage easily since the rows are not really pitched much if at all. I had a very large man sitting in front of me and spent the performance bobbing side to side to try to see what was going on. My suggestion? Try to select seats as close to the stage as possible, or sit in the upper wings where the seats ARE tiered
