I have been a season ticket holder, with Steppenwolf Theatre for several years, and lately have been questioning why.  Well, this first production of the new season, currently in previews, “Clybourne Park”, was enough for me to remember why I subscribed in the first place.

Not only was the play sensational, the subject matter interesting but the caliber of the acting was exceptional.  I refuse to say more, as I feel it would ruin the theatre goer’s experience.

Steppenwolf is known for premiering many plays, of Chicago playwrights, that have found their way to the Great White Way – even to include winning Toni’s for both the play and the actors.

If you happen to be staying at the Hampton Inn & Suites Chicago, the theatre is easily accessible from the Red Line “El” train – take a right out of the front doors, left onto State St (the 1st light), at Grand & State just board a Howard bound train going north. Get off at the North & Clybourn stop. Then travel north on Halsted for a half a block, you cannot miss it, no pun intended.
