Fodor's Review

This magnificent 1876 Victorian-gingerbread "wedding cake" theater on the Connecticut River—so called for its turrets, mansard roof, and grand filigree—is widely recognized for its role in the preservation and development of American musical theater. Well over a dozen Goodspeed productions have gone on to Broadway, including Annie. Performances take place April–early December.
