Steppenwolf Theatre Company is the nation’s premier ensemble theater. Formed in 1976 by high school friends and then unknown actors—Gary Sinise, Jeff Perry and Terry Kinney—the ensemble has grown to 50+ members who are among the top actors, directors and playwrights in American theater.

Thrilling, provocative and courageous productions from “Balm in Gilead” and “August: Osage County” to “MS. BLAKK FOR PRESIDENT”—and accolades that include the National Medal of Arts and 12 Tony® Awards—have made the theater legendary. Steppenwolf produces a seven-play season; a two-play Steppenwolf for Young Adults season; and LookOut, a multi-genre performances series in its three accessible theatre spaces located in the heart of Lincoln Park.

Education initiatives include the nationally recognized work of Steppenwolf for Young Adults, which engages 15,000 participants annually from Chicago’s diverse communities; the esteemed School at Steppenwolf; and Professional Leadership Programs for arts administration training. 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.

Front Bar: Coffee & Drinks, an inviting cafe & bar, is connected to Steppenwolf’s main lobby where audiences and artists enjoy drinks, food and conversation day and night. Front Bar serves artisanal coffee and espresso by Passion House Coffee Roasters and food by The Goddess and Grocer, more info at
