We subscribe. We donate. We love it! Have seen some clunkers along the way, but have also seen some of the best ever. Even the free workshops and readings are first class.

The Goodman has season tickets too, but I have only attended select plays. The old Goodman theater used to be closer to the train tracks, and I have many memories of taking the South Shore train downtown with my mom, aunt, and cousin. But the new Goodman is much nicer, and well designed, and presents a lot of excellent plays. Many restaurants nearby.

Measure for Measure is one of many great shows produced at the Goodman Theater Director Robert Falls has a very original take on one of Shakespeare's darkest plays.

We saw a Cuban production 'Pedro Paramo' and it was in Spanish- with subtitles. At no point in any of the ads did they advise of this. Not that it was a problem- but I'm just mentioning it. It fact, it was rather effective to feel the passion of the Cuban performers- it was a really good show and quite funny even if the content was slightly serious.

Loved the theatre - very nicely done.

Came here to see Measure for Measure (a bawdy though sometimes solemn morality play set in Vienna), this presentation being set in 1980's NYC. The acting was great and they made the characters their own and adapted them for the time period theme. The costumes were perfect, and the staging smoothly transformed between the filth of Times Square and the relative purity of city hall.
