It has been quite a while since I've seen a show at The Goodman. What a terrific evening we saw Objects in the Mirror. It is a moving and timely exploration of the refugee experience. The difficult subject matter was handled beautifully. The theater itself...More

Excellent writing and performances. Heavy subject matter. Cried through the entire 2nd half. A Must see. Smaller theatre, really not a bad seat. Comfortable in every way.
