Steppenwolf Theatre Company

The juggernaut that’s home to maybe the world’s most famous acting ensemble (paging Gary Sinise, John Mahoney, Laurie Metcalf, Martha Plimpton, William Petersen…) is probably what most people outside Chicago think of when they hear “Chicago theater.” From famous basement origins has risen a major institution where two performance venues house a lineup of new and classic plays (a third, the Garage just down the street, hosts a somewhat funkier slate).

Venue name: Steppenwolf Theatre Company
Address: 1650 N Halsted St

Cross street: between Willow St and North Ave
Transport: El stop: Red to North/Clybourn. Bus: 8, 72.

Steppenwolf is one of my favorite places to see a play! i love that they added in the beautiful front bar and i would go get a drink there even if i wasn't seeing a show! i feel like every seat in the theater is a good seat and i can't wait to get back there!

Steppenwolf is a Chicago theater institution. Make plans to see the full season (season passes are very reasonably priced) if you live in Chicago and if you're just visiting then be sure to add a show here to your itinerary.

When it comes to theater in Chicago, Steppenwolf is the bee's knees. It's been home to Pulitzer Prize winning plays, and often puts shows up before they move onto New York for Broadway infamy. Any show you see there is probably going to be a winner, and if you're a theater aficionado, you're going to want to pay close attention to its lineup year round.
