Steppenwolf Theatre Company
It’s the story that made Chicago theater what it is today. College chums start edgy theater company in church basement, and eventually come to symbolize a Chicago style that is known worldwide-or at least throughout Broadway and Hollywood. Founders and ensemble members go on to collect Oscars and film and TV credits by the bushel, but keep returning to the mothership for a creative recharge. Ain’t it cool?
