Steppenwolf Theatre Company will challenge you to think harder, laugh longer, feel more. True to its mission, Steppenwolf consistently delivers dynamic and exciting theater that will hit you hard.

Steppenwolf grew out of a basement performance space in one of Chicago's northern suburbs when a small group of ambitious high school and college friends decided to share their talent with the world. Their decision has resulted in nine Tony Awards®, a National Medal of Arts, an Illinois Arts Legend Award and countless Joseph Jefferson citations, Chicago's local theater prize. Ensemble members include such household names as Joan Allen, John Mahoney, Laurie Metcalf, John Malkovich, Amy Morton and cofounder Gary Sinise.
