I really do think Goodspeed should be the poster-child for regional theatres across the world. Honestly, the greatest place I have ever worked. Amazing housing, amazing people, amazing opportunities. What a wonderful experience - if I only work at Goodspeed for the rest of my life, I'd be ok with that...
Completely agree. Hands down, the best place I have ever worked. Great housing, great productions, great people! Does not get better!
I will echo the other posts. I have worked in many venues but the Goodspeed is on top of my list. I only worked there once but found the "campus" very welcoming. The rehearsal space, the theater, and the amazing library which is a must go to were fantastic. The stage is small, but somehow the shows end up large and the Goodspeed audiences are top-notch as well. Hoping to get back there soon
Thank you for the comments! Might anyone touch upon the area a bit more-- how you spend your time outside of performing, if they provide cars, getting back to the city at times, etc.? Thank you!!
It was years ago that I worked there, so I don't know if things are the same now, but to answer some of the questions above, in my day, they did not provide cars, but since there isn't a lot in walking distance, they'd take us in groups once a week to do grocery shopping, laundry, etc. I was there in the winter, so a bunch of us took up knitting/crocheting. Also, older patrons of the theater would volunteer to drive cast members to the train station in Old Saybrook for trips back into the city.
An absolute dream
