The Goodman Theatre, recipient of a Special Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre, is a leader in the American theater and internationally renowned for its artists, productions and educational programs.
The theater was established in July 1922, by a gift of $250,000 from William and Erna Goodman to the Art Institute of Chicago for the purpose of building a theater to memorialize their son, Kenneth Sawyer Goodman. Before his death at the age of 35 in the influenza epidemic of 1918, Kenneth Sawyer Goodman had written, published and produced a number of plays in non-commercial productions in Chicago, and had expressed his vision of an ideal theater, one that would combine professional training with the highest possible performance standards. The new theater, encompassing a drama school and a professional acting company, opened its doors on October 20, 1925.
In the mid-1980s, concerned about the adequacy of its aging theater behind the Art Institute, the Goodman began to explore the possibility of a new facility. In the early 90's, the idea of the North Loop Theatre District was born, and the new Goodman Theatre at the corner of Randolph and N. Dearborn opened in December, 2000. After 75 years of ups, downs, highs, and lows, the Goodman had entered the 21st century, and began writing a new chapter in its formidable history.
