This summer, Robert Falls will be stepping down as artistic director of the Goodman Theatre after more than three decades. We’ve got questions. Join us Tuesday April 19, 2022 at 8pm Eastern.
From his early days with Wisdom Bridge Theatre through his epic production of “2666” to his bold video/hybrid pandemic production of Adam Rapp’s “The Sound Inside,” Falls has been a groundbreaking theater artist. Under Falls’ leadership, the Goodman Theatre produced bold work, opened its stages to other regional companies and created innovative development programs.
ATCA member Lou Harry will lead a conversation about the evolution of the Goodman and the challenges of taking shows to Broadway (where Falls won a Tony for his “Death of a Salesman” and directed the hit “Aida”). Attendees will gain insight into Falls’ work with legends such as Stephen Sondheim and Arthur Miller, learn about his long-time artistic partnerships with playwright Rebecca Gilman, actors Brian Dennehy and Stacy Keach, and others, and find out what’s next for one of American theater’s leading creatives.
