We bought tickets for a recent production that brought us to the Goodman for the first time. Although our seats were very high up, they still were excellent. We'd go again!

I took my sister to The Goodman for her birthday. We saw Diane Lane's Sweet Bird of Youth. We sat in Box 5 which is one level up from the stage and when facing the stage, on the right hand side. The ticket price was a little less due to partial view. However, we were not disappointed. There were very few actions we couldn't see and we could heard everything very well. We had plenty of space because we were the only 2 seats in the box.

The theatre is well maintained and looks over the busy city street. It was very clean and easy to access. The only major negative is they did not let us in the theatre to sit down until after the scheduled show time. We were all crowded into the hallways until then. When it's wet, rainy and cold, that's a bit of an inconvenience.

My second visit from out of town this year, having seen "The Iceman Cometh" in June, and recently "Sweet Bird of Youth"; high quality theatre: acting, directing, design elements all very good. Met with three of the actors after the performance, through mutual friends. -- The theatre itself is has comfortable seats and excellent sight-lines making all seats good ones.

The play was fantastic with Diane Lane, The seats were excellent in the small theatre. I think every seat would be excellent.
