In Chicago the holiday season wouldn’t be the same without the Goodman Theatre’s production of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” Now in its 35th year, the play has entertained more than 1.5 million theatergoers — and on Nov. 29, an intimate group of the Goodman’s patrons toasted to another great season. Sponsored by BMO Private Bank, Aon and KPMG, the event began with dinner and drinks at Petterino’s (150 N. Dearborn), and included remarks from Goodman Executive Director Roche Schulfer and Associate Producer and Director Steve Scott. The evening included a performance of “A Christmas Carol” and the lighting of the Goodman’s holiday tree in its lobby, which also kicked off the launch of an endowment fund dedicated to ensuring the show’s future performances.
The Sun-Times was the media sponsor of this event.
