SynopsisOpened May 2, 1999 In his first production since his triumphant Broadway direction of Ragtime, ensemble member Frank Galati returns to the Steppenwolf stage to direct his Chicago Premiere. Sylvia Regan's Morning Star beautifully captures the hopes and struggles of a widow and her extended family in the lower East Side of New York. Their fortunes are shaped by the momentous events happening around them: the Triangle Shirtwaist fire, World War I and the Great Depression. Originally produced in 1940, Morning Star shares with us a poignant quest for family, love and the promise of the American dream.
