Goodspeed Opera House is one of Connecticut's cultural treasures.
The company is housed in an 1876 Victorian structure above the Connecticut River in East Haddam, 35 miles downriver from Hartford. It is open nine months of the year, closing only in the winter.
Most of the performances are musicals. The original performances of The Man of La Mancha, Shenandoah and Annie all took place at Goodspeed before going on the Broadway.
