There’s a reason you’ll see this historic theatre in every Connecticut tourism commercial: the 1876 Victorian building almost teetering on the east bank of the Connecticut River is breathtaking in itself.
But the Goodspeed isn't simply a pretty picture. The American musicals (both revivals and new productions) performed here are often said to rival Broadway in quality. And you don’t get to a Broadway theatre by crossing a historic swing bridge, nor can you begin your evening as you can here, having a drink overlooking the water and watching the boats come and go.
The Goodspeed puts on three shows each year.
