Theater

Steppenwolf Theatre Company is the nation's premier ensemble theater, redefining the landscape of acting and performance.

Co-founded by actors Gary Sinise, Terry Kinney and Jeff Perry in 1976, the ensemble has grown to 46 members who represent a remarkable cross-section of actors, directors and playwrights. Thrilling and powerful productions from Balm in Gilead to August: Osage County?and accolades that include the National Medal of Arts and 12 Tony Awards have made the theater legendary.

Steppenwolf produces hundreds of performances and events annually in its three spaces: the 515-seat Downstairs Theatre, the 299-seat Upstairs Theatre and the 80-seat 1700 Theatre.

While firmly grounded in the Chicago community, nearly 40 original Steppenwolf productions have enjoyed success both nationally and internationally, including Broadway, Off-Broadway, London, Sydney, Galway and Dublin. For additional information, visit steppenwolf.org.
