Growing up in North Caroli na, New England was a fan tasy land of lobster bakes, beautiful fall color and win tery wonderlands brought to life in old movies my friends and I would enjoy during ‘pajama parties’ — as we called sleepovers. It was there that I first experienced the perfect lighthearted Barbara Stanwyck film Christmas In Connecticut. It has long been one of my favorite holiday films.

Right after we produced Holiday Inn here at Goodspeed in 2014, I began to dream of adapting Christmas in Connecticut for the stage. Early in 2021 a call came from our friends at Broadway Licensing sharing that they were involved with an adaptation of the film…would I “be interested in taking a look at the material?”

WOULD I?! I showed all my cards on a sub sequent call when I said “It will be a personal failure if Christmas In Connecticut doesn’t premiere at Goodspeed.” And here we are. I am grateful to the authors for entrusting their work to us. And I am thrilled to share this heartfelt romp with you and your family this holiday season. Everyone at Goodspeed joins me in wishing you a Christmas in Connecticut filled with all the wonder of the season…and a little bit of nog.

Happy Holidays, and peace to all.


Here we are at the end of our 2022 season — our first full season since 2019 — and what a season it has been! Just under a year ago we were still uncertain how 2022 might play out. Would we be able to safely gather in one place and would audiences return were two very important questions at the top of our list. The quick answer to both has been a resounding YES and YES. To say it has been an incredible joy for our artists, artisans, staff and Trustees to have you back with us is a huge understatement. As an art form, we are meant to be together and throughout our 2022 season, we have welcomed audiences from nearly every town in Connecticut and from three dozen states. Thanks so very much for your belief in us and for being such

an important part of Goodspeed’s bright future.

How fitting that we are together now to share in a wonderful, World Premiere holiday musical at The Goodspeed. She dresses up pretty well for the holidays, no? Enjoy today’s performance!

From each of us at Goodspeed, we wish you and yours the very best this season and always. We’re here because of you.

Warm wishes,

We fell in love with savvy schemer Liz Lane from the moment we first watched Christ mas in Connecticut, the 1945 holiday classic. She’s a happily single big-city sophisticate who makes hay pretending in print to be a home spun country housewife and mother. When Liz’s publisher asks her to entertain a war hero at her mythical farm in the Nutmeg State, the story’s screwball hijinks shift into giddy high gear. It’s an irresistible set up, and the time period sure doesn’t hurt: Christmas time during World War II, when America was united by a common pur pose, optimistic about the future, and willing to sacrifice for cherished ideals.

For our adaptation, we embraced Liz as a force of nature ahead of her time—imagine Sex and the City’s boundary-pushing Carrie Bradshaw pretending to be lifestyle tradition alist Martha Stewart. We discovered along the way many contemporary resonances, including the persistence of that unbreakable glass ceiling, the ongoing tensions between clashing points of view, and the perils of invented personas (hello, social media!). We’ve also added two new characters—a hunky socialist farmhand and a fact-checker who yearns to be a gumshoe—to give Liz even more challenges as she navigates her rural trial by fire.

When news came that the musical’s inaugu ral voyage would be at the Goodspeed Opera House—Christmas in Connecticut playing at Christmas in the actual Connecticut—it was as if Santa himself had slid down the chimney with the thrilling news. After all, what’s Christ mas without a Christmas miracle?


As a musical theatre lyricist, writing pro fessor, and professional crossword puzzle constructor, the threads of my livelihood intersect at the nexus of language. I’ve always believed that words matter, but now the impact of what we say, and how we say it, feels more timely than ever. What does any of this have to do with a frothy holiday farce?

Yes, the packaging of Christ mas in Connecticut and the fabulous world of Liz Lane is indeed light on its face. Comedic antics and jaunty songs abound. And yet, there’s a gravitas bubbling under the surface, one that I hopw will reach across the proscenium and across the aisles.

Liz Lane—immortalized by the saucy Barbara Stanwyck on film—hungers to use her words to make some serious feminist waves during a time when that was unthinkable. The idea to center on such a progressive female pro tagonist back in the 1940s (and also in the 21st century!) is not de rigueur in Hollywood or on Broadway. And that right there is why I am so drawn to this story. Narratives which allow, nay empower, women to push socio cultural boundaries in beautifully subversive ways are in woefully short supply.

Regarding the score of the show, we’ve tried to imbue both the music and lyrics with flavors of the delicious big band era as well as contemporary resonances to remind audienc es, ever so subtly, that Christmas in Connecti cut is not only a musical of its time, but of our time, too.

The land on which Goodspeed Musicals is located in East Haddam and Chester, CT is the ancestral land of at least three tribes of Native Americans—the Wangunk, the Mohegan and the Nehantic tribes. We understand that the land which is now Haddam and East Haddam, was purchased from the native people in 1662 for thirty coats—worth about $100. We acknowledge those native Americans and the loss of their homeland—land on which we thrive today.
