Review: ANNE OF GREEN GABLES: A NEW MUSICAL at The Goodspeed Photo Review: ANNE OF GREEN GABLES: A NEW MUSICAL at The Goodspeed
by Ariana Straznicky-Packer - Aug 17, 2022

Brand new musical Anne of Green Gables is at the Goodspeed now through September 4, 2022. The classic story is brought to life in a heartfelt and clever folk-rock musical with beautifully developed and charming characters. he cast is absolute perfection and I would fight anyone who dares to change it. The writing and music is more than promising and I wish I could get my hands on this exact soundtrack. Anne of Green Gables is charming, well-written, and the performances are phenomenal. Don’t miss this bold and vibrant new musical.
