#25 Goodspeed Opera House

East Haddam, CT USA

"...the Goodspeed Opera House is the birthplace of some the world's most famous musicals, including Annie, Man of La Mancha and Shenandoah. The opera house was originally built by a local merchant and banker, William Goodspeed. Construction began in 1876 and finished in 1877. Despite the name, it was not in fact an opera house, but rather a venue for presenting plays." Wikipedia

Great shot and interesting information. Most unusual architecture for an opera house. I like the way it looms over the viewer in this image. "V"
