Steppenwolf's New Backstage Magazine
by Curt Columbus, Associate Artistic Director
Welcome to the new Backstage magazine. We’ve made some exciting changes to the look and format, as well as changed how you, our audience, receive the magazine. As you all know, there are few moments in the theater like the moment when you take your seat for a play. We would like to enhance that moment, to give you the opportunity to read about the play, to think about the world you are about to enter. So, when you take your seat at Steppenwolf, in addition to the program materials for each of the shows, we’re going to be giving everyone a look at Steppenwolf’s Backstage magazine. We also want you to know that there’s more to the Steppenwolf story than the work that appears on just one of our stages. Our programming reaches out to audiences around the city, and around the world. Our work has resonances within the larger culture, and it is enriched by a deeper conversation with our audience. It is that exploration of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company experience that we’re introducing to every member of our audience. Welcome to Steppenwolf Backstage.
