We are saddened by the news that longtime friend, co-worker and Goodspeed Guild member Diane Rottmann passed away unexpectedly while at her home. She was longtime fixture at Goodspeed. Diane’s connection to Goodspeed began in 1975, shortly after she moved to Connecticut when she and her mother were among the first to volunteer with the Goodspeed Guild.

As an audience member you might remember her operating the elevator or ushering you to your seat. Diane was the front of house staffer that always greeted you with a big smile. Artists will remember her providing delicious appetizers for and presiding over Welcome Dinners. She regularly brought flowers to campus providing an extra special bit of color and beauty to the Opera House and rehearsal studio for all to enjoy.

To say she will be missed is an extreme understatement. Her memory will live on at Goodspeed for years to come.

β€œAll of us at Goodspeed Musicals recognize that our programming, our staff, our artists, our Board of Trustees, and our audience should reflect the rich diversity of the communities we serve. Throughout our history too little effort has been made to change the gender, racial, and ethnic representation of our theatre. We acknowledge the moral imperative to address barriers for women and people of color, with particular emphasis on the highest levels of Goodspeed, where greater equity and inclusion will be most impactful. Goodspeed is committed to this work, and we wish to address it directly, publicly, and transparently.

To guide our progress, in the summer of 2020 Goodspeed established a Racial Equity Task Force comprised of Board and staff and charged it with recommending actions to lead to greater diversity, equity, and inclusion among our staff, creative teams, performing artists, Trustees, and audience. In acknowledging our shortcomings, Goodspeed has engaged the services of The Woke Coach, a minority-owned and operated company whose mission is to help clients be better individuals and leaders with a deeper understanding of how the legacy of racism and injustice affect us all. We will be updating on the progress of our work in this space.

Goodspeed Musicals has evolved a long and respected reputation as a leader in our industry while we’ve entertained audiences and created work that has moved our community towards greater inclusion. But we have much work to do if we are to create the safe and inclusive environment we envision. As we build on our great history, it is critical that equity, diversity, inclusion and justice for all be among our guiding principles. We commit to undertaking this journey with fervor, empathy for all and with joy."

Due to the effects of the recent winter storm the Box Office and administrative offices will be opening at noon today. Please check back here for updates. Be safe stay warm!

Since we announced the change in our 2018 season, there have been a lot of comments –both positive and negative. We respect and appreciate all of the feedback, and wanted to share more information to inform the conversation.

Our original intention in selecting Bullets Over Broadway was to present an entertaining show for our audience. However, we are convinced that the recent attention surrounding Woody Allen would distract from their experience of the show. This distraction was expressed by our members, subscribers artists and staff and has unfortunately blurred the distinction that should exist to separate the artist from the art. This decision was made with careful consideration and significant research. Whether the allegations are true or false had nothing to do with our decision. In the end, we felt it was best for Goodspeed and our audience to select another show that could entertain without controversy.

All departments including our Box Office will open at 11am today. Please drive safely and stay warm everyone!
