Cast & Artists
Two seasons ago, Steppenwolf's Arts Exchange Program presented a critically acclaimed, new musical adaptation of Sherwood Anderson's classic novel, Winesburg, Ohio. About Face Theatre Company and Steppenwolf developed the piece further into a full–length musical to be presented this summer in the Upstairs Theatre. Backstage asked adapter and About Face Artistic Director Eric Rosen to talk about the new version of Winesburg and how it made it back onto the Steppenwolf stage.
Chicago composers and sound designers Andre Pluess and Ben Sussman have been a powerful force on the Chicago theater scene for the last several seasons, winning awards and critical praise and pleasing audiences around the city. Now they've created a new score for Steppenwolf's Arts Exchange production of Winesburg, Ohio. For this Backstage interview, artistic associate Curt Columbus recently talked to them between gigs for this Backstage interview.
