(WTNH) -- Have you seen a show at Goodspeed Opera House in East Haddam? If you have it's been under the watchful eye of Executive Director, Michael Price.
He's coming up on 50 years at the helm.
Nyberg: "Do you work a year ahead?"
Price: "...I was more of a last minute person. I'm a better fireman than I am a planner. They're better planners and I'm a pretty good fireman, but they're better planners and they're pushing me further ahead all of the time and I understand the reasons."
Nyberg: "So, anything you can tease about next year or no?"
Price: "When is this going to air?"
Nyberg: "Directly. Right away."
Price: "Ah, we're going to do two plays. Two musicals that we have done already because it's our 50th year, and one that we have never done before... and all of them in their day were really big hits."
Nyberg: "Okay that's all I needed to know. The legacy that Michael Price has given to the Goodspeed would be what?"
Price: "I think that we in Connecticut produce good theater so it's not what Michael Price has done, it's what ah, Michael Wilson at the Hartford Stage has done, or Gordon Edelston has done at Long Wharf, or Arvin Brown at Long Wharf or George at, oh God, he'll know don't worry, at the O'Neil. It's what everybody in this town -- I was going to say town because it's a small state and it has more theaters per capita, more professional theater than any other state in the country per capita -- and I think that all of us together we'll have left this place better than it was when we started in these theaters and most of us are coming up to 50 years of existence."
