Where great acting meets big ideas


The innovative use of the three Steppenwolf performance spaces provides exciting artistic opportunities for Steppenwolf.

The Steppenwolf Downstairs Theatre presents world premiere productions and fresh interpretations of classic and contemporary plays in its state-of-the-art 515-seat theatre.

The Steppenwolf Upstairs Theatre is a 299-seat theater that reflects Steppenwolf's commitment to the intimacy of the actor-audience relationship. Each season, one subscription series play is produced in the Upstairs Theatre. The driving artistic purpose of presenting subscription productions in the Upstairs Theatre is to provide audiences with a more intimate theatrical experience.

The Garage theatre is the company's most intimate performance space, showcasing the work of emerging actors, directors, writers and designers and is dedicated to nurturing the best new voices in the American theatre.
