Schedule Change for our 2018 Season

Schedule Change for our 2018 Season

Dear Friend,
I am writing to announce a change to our 2018 season. Instead of Bullets Over Broadway we will produce the Tony-Award winning musical comedy The Drowsy Chaperone, never before seen at Goodspeed. The show is a lighthearted parody of 1920s musical comedies featuring a chirpy jazz age score and a clever book. The show won five Tony Awards in 2006 including awards for best book and score. This show presents Goodspeed at its very best in a laugh-out-loud musical which follows an unexpected and surprising story with great music of the period, tap dancing and an evening of pure entertainment. The Drowsy Chaperone will have performances on the same dates as originally scheduled for Bullets Over Broadway.
Four months ago when we chose Bullets Over Broadway it was to complement our other two shows – The Will Rogers Follies and Oliver! – to bring you a show filled with clever wit and surprising humor wrapped in a slapstick story in the manner of Guys and Dolls. However, in light of the current dialogue on sexual harassment and misconduct, the author of Bullets Over Broadway, Woody Allen, has come under increasing scrutiny. This situation has led  us to reconsider our season and I have decided it is best for Goodspeed not to produce this show at this time. 
If you have already purchased tickets, you don’t need to do anything. Your seats and dates won’t change. As usual, your season tickets will arrive in the mail in early March. And, of course, the Box Office is always ready to take your calls at any time if you have questions.
I trust you will understand our decision to make this change. I believe The Drowsy Chaperone will be an entertaining and uplifting show to end our 2018 season and look forward to an exciting year with all of you.

Executive Director
