BWW Blog: Noah Plomgren of Goodspeed's GUYS & DOLLS - Wrapping It Up

Hey Broadway World! Its Noah again writing to you from the Goodspeed Opera House, where all of us in Guys and Dolls are starting to wrap up our time here. We have had an incredible run here and since starting performances in April, we will have done some 80-odd performances by the time we close on June 20. Having the chance to do a run this long has been amazing and the way the show has grown and deepened over the last two and a half months has been an absolute joy to witness. Everyone has been diving deeper into their characters day after day, scenes have been getting tighter, jokes have been getting funnier and we are all having the time of our lives.

As we wrap up the next week and a half of shows, I think fondly back on the entire process and how this amazing group of people has grown together since our first day of rehearsal on March 10. Its a really special group and some amazing friendships have formed. In addition to performing Guys and Dolls nightly with each other, we've also had the chance to do so many fun things together on our days off. Some people have gone to the movies to see the latest new releases like Mad Max and Spy and report back to all of us. Some people have gone back to NYC on their day off for auditions, to see family, etc. and we all always look forward to hearing about the shows that everyone saw in town when we are all back at work together each Wednesday. Last week, our amazing wardrobe supervisor John Ricucci (who you all met in one of our videos) hosted a Tony Awards party and many of us went over to watch the Tonys and cheer on our fellow artists who were being celebrated that night, in addition to eating a lot of food and drinking a lot of wine.

East Haddam and its surrounding areas have also offered so many amazing sights to see, like Gilette's Castle, named for actor William Gilette, famous for creating the iconic look of the Sherlock Holmes that we know today. The Devil's Hopyard has given us some GORGEOUS hiking trails and waterfalls. Some of us have had the opportunity to go kayaking on the Connecticut River and others have enjoyed their time exploring different bars, breweries, and restaurants all over this beautiful section of Connecticut we get to work in.

As we begin to pack up our rooms and look ahead to what's next (for some its making their Broadway debut and for others it might be a fun road trip to somewhere we've never explored, and for others, back to the audition grind) we will all reflect and think back on our favorite memories and moments of the past three and a half months, some of which we'll share with you all in our final blog post later this week. Thanks for reading. Peace out!
