“Great small theater in the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 August 2012

Really great small theater in the middle of the city with fantastic productions. If you are a live theater fan and a visitor to the city- I highly recommend checking out what is playing here. The only thing you wont get is the grand old theater feel that the large ones like Cadillac, Oriental and Chicago have.

“Interesting stage plays”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2012

They have some of the most thought provoking plays presented in Chicago here at the Goodman. All the seats are good, and there is always something of interest being performed. If you like theater, you will like the Goodman

“One of the top three regional theaters in Chicago”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

If you like top notch regional theater from Berkeley Rep to Kennedy Center you will like the Goodman. I find the Goodman a director driven theater. Do I like it? Well I have subscribed for 33 years.

“Get a little culture”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2012

The theater is relatively small, so there is not a "bad" seat in the house. Classics and modern plays are planned each season.
