Goodman Theatre will welcome back live audiences for the 2021/2022 season on July 30 following a 16-month hiatus. 

The 10-play lineup will begin with "School Girls; Or, The African Mean Girls Play," a production that was suspended days before it was scheduled to debut in March 2020. "A Christmas Carol" will also return for its 44th consecutive year, following the audio adaptation released in 2020.
"This, truly, is the moment we’ve been waiting for—at once a ‘homecoming’ and a new beginning—after one of the most challenging periods of our collective experience. We are enormously grateful to our audiences—with special thanks to all who’ve joined us virtually as a sponsor or spectator while in-person performances have been suspended—and thrilled to welcome you back now,” Goodman Artistic Director Robert Falls said in a news release.
