Description

Committed to the principle of ensemble performance through the collaboration of a company of actors, directors and playwrights, Steppenwolf Theatre Company makes innovative use of three theaters to fulfill its mission.

The Downstairs Theatre is the largest space, with a producing capacity that attracts theater's finest directors, playwrights, actors and designers. The Upstairs Theatre's flexibility directly reflects Steppenwolf's commitment to the intimacy of the actor-audience relationship. The Merle Reskin Garage Theatre has become a setting for the most intimate and surprising work onstage, nurturing the very best new voices in American theater.

The Traffic series unites artists of varying disciplines to ignite their storytelling talents in exclusive engagements. Arts Exchange productions and programs are specifically geared to teachers, young adults and families.

No matter the event, the Steppenwolf experience is marked by the principles of ensemble collaboration, superior acting and the creation of new work reflecting the Steppenwolf vision.
