About This Show

Chicago will be first to experience the new musical Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil — based on John Berendt’s iconic non-fiction book — next summer. With a book by MacArthur “Genius” Grantee Taylor Mac and music and lyrics by Tony Award winner Jason Robert Brown, the world-premiere production will be directed by Tony Award winner Rob Ashford, with choreography by Tanya Birl and sets by Christopher Oram. Berendt’s 1994 blockbuster book, a Pulitzer-Prize finalist that was on the New York Times BestSeller list for 216 weeks and was adapted for Clint Eastwood’s 1997 film of the same name, is the story of a socially prominent Savannah, Georgia, antiques dealer who was tried, and retried, for murder.

Tickets to Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil are currently available by Goodman Membership; to purchase, call (312) 443-3800 or visit GoodmanTheatre.org. Individual tickets go on sale at a later date.
