A standard-bearer among the nation’s regional theaters and the downtown grand pooh-bah of Chicago’s professional scene, the Goodman is helmed by Tony-winning director Robert Falls. Falls’s hallmark productions of American classics (Death of a Salesman, Long Day’s Journey) are indicative of the Goodman’s mainly deluxe-but-traditional fare. Yet a commitment to ethnically diverse programming, in particular the trailblazing biannual Latino Theater Festival curated by artistic associate Henry Godinez, sets it apart from its contemporaries. There’s also a doozy of A Christmas Carol every winter.
