  • Goodspeed has really dedicated, accessible Company Management - they are literally there at every actor call, to answer questions, distribute mail, work out carpool/grocery run details, etc. Super responsive to emails, texts, phone calls, too. Having a of your own car is helpful, especially if you want to go to the gym (free membership, CMs help set it up last time I was there). They do typically provide a vehicle for Stage Management, and plenty of actors work out a discounted long-term rental for the term of the contract. The nearest Enterprise office offers pickup and drop-off service at the front doors of the Opera House. I lived in the old housing and new housing... and the new housing is SPECTACULAR. Gorgeous. Warm, quiet, well-equipped, tidy. En suite bathrooms in each bedroom. Bedrooms are large enough to work out with total privacy - a big bonus after a long rehearsal day.
  • Great theater in the middle of nowhere. Having a car is a must...otherwise you're at the mercy of company management. Easy trip back to NYC on the days off. Long contracts to get your weeks.
  • They need to have company cars. It is ridiculous that a theatre with the reputation they have can't provide what is necessary given the remote location. And if the show isn't successful Michael Price won't be very nice...

    Goodspeed is a great theater that consistently produces quality shows. I've done two shows there and I loved both experiences. That being said, there are some things that you really need to consider about it. It is truly out in the country. There's nothing in the town but the theater, a hotel/restaurant, a sweet shop and a liquor store. The closest grocery is a fifteen minute drive. Movie theater is a half hour. It is absolutely imperative that you have a car. If I hadn't had my car, I would have been miserable. So to sum up, it's a grat place. You'll a great time - as long as you have a car!
  • Based on contracts in 2000 and 2004, the old housing was hit and miss. Best to have a car because there is literally nothing in E. Haddam to eat or do. It's a lovely part of CT, but you need a car to enjoy it all. Great people, stage management, and the chance to do a quality show in a wonderful, old theatre with NO amplification is great. Never worked at the Terris, but the housing is the same for both theaters. The schedule is wonderful as you can be home in NYC a couple days a week, even get in and out for auditions.
  • I cannot stress having a car enough!
