"What great theatre should be."

When you can see stars like Brian Dennehy and Diane Lane walk through the front door, you know you are somewhere special. And when you can watch Pulitzer Prize-winning plays by Lynn Nottage and Quiara Alegría Hudes and works by American masters like Tennessee Williams, you know you're at the Goodman.

Goodman Theatre Chicago's oldest and largest not-for-profit theater, has won international renown for the quality of its productions, the depth and diversity of its artistic leadership, and the excellence of its many community and educational programs. In its 90 years, some of Goodman's great artistic achievements include two Pulitzer Prizes for Theatre, a 1992 Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theater, as well as 11 more Tony Awards in the last decade.

A play at the Goodman is one you won't soon forget. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Robert Falls, the Goodman gives life to the work of today's most dynamic artists – from bold new talents to acclaimed national and international voices – and will thrill you with its riveting variety of theatergoing experiences.

Among the theater's esteemed collaborators is the Goodman Artistic Collective, a powerhouse group of diverse theater artists that includes Pulitzer Prize finalists, Tony Award winners and MacArthur "Genius Award" winners.
