Goings-on at the Goodman

By Lesley Gibson, Publications Coordinator
It’s been a busy and particularly events-filled few weeks here at the Goodman. A Christmas Carol finally opened this past Sunday night, with all the glitz, glamour, and melted cheese typical of opening-night festivities (the post-show party was held at The Melting Pot, a fondue eatery). And last week, Mayor and Maggie Daley appeared on the Goodman stage in a rededication ceremony for the theater, as part of our festivities for our 10th anniversary in the Loop. That event (which was conveniently held on a Monday afternoon) featured a dramatic drop-in performance by an uncharacteristically generous Scrooge, and a reading of August Wilson’s address from the theater’s 2000 inaugural festivities, by six Goodman regulars and/or Collective members—Brian Dennehy, Mary Beth Fisher, Henry Godinez, Ernest Perry Jr., Steve Pickering, and Regina Taylor (above). Fun times!
