Goodspeed Musicals, the only two-time Tony Award-winning theatre in the country, combined the fine and performing arts by installing a Sky Factory Luminous SkyCeiling in their newly inaugurated Max Showalter Room at the Goodspeed facilities in East Haddam, Connecticut.
This special room showcases memorabilia from the decades-long career of Showalter, beloved actor of stage and screen, and is now home to Showalter's pair of baby grand pianos. It was Showalter's wish that these beloved instruments be shared by composers, musicians and performers in a space that will be used for programs to inspire and educate "young creators in the fields of theatre, film and music."
The Max Showalter Foundation, Inc. supported this latest addition to The Max Showalter Center for Education at Goodspeed Musicals which has supported education programs for the last six years.
