We stayed at the Burnham Hotel, well located for The Goodman and near the Redline. Great little hotel, but can be expensive. We happened on a good rate!

We dined at Tratorria No. 10, just down the street from The Goodman, and it was quite good. A little expensive, but if you don't order wine (expensive) and dessert, you can keep the bill down. I enjoyed it, but my husband thought it was "too fancy." I thought it was perfect in beautiful surroundings, and I would dine there again!

It was a lovely show. Beautiful costumes, ingenious props and a staging, and wonderful acting. We had a fun night out.

Fabulous production at all levels -- great talent, wonderfully creative staging, Leonard Berstein -- need I say more? Only detraction involved clueless patrons who kept flipping on hand-held light-emitting devices during the show. This extremely...continued

Great music with very witty lyrics. Excellent performances, but beware it is 3 hours long. The story line is episodic and can become tiresomely repetitive in feeling, but it is worth struggling through because it is worth it in the end.

Description

Tony Award- and MacArthur “Genius” Grant-winning director Mary Zimmerman’s breathtaking new production of Candide is the theatrical event of the season.

Featuring the music of Leonard Bernstein with contributions from the greatest lyricists of the 20th century — from Stephen Sondheim to Dorothy Parker — this outrageous musical satire tells the story of the naïve Candide, who is banished for romancing the Baron’s daughter only to be plagued by a series of absurd hardships that challenge his optimistic outlook of life and love. Candide will leave you enchanted.
