John Mayer

Published by Methuen

In 1974 a group of determined, young high school actors started doing plays under the name of Steppenwolf Theatre Company

Eventually taking residence in the basement of a church in Highland Park, a suburb of Chicago, they began their unlikely journey to become one of the most prominent theatre companies in the world

Steppenwolf Theatre Company has changed the face of American theatre with its innovative approach that blends dynamic ensemble performance, honest, straightforward acting, and bold, thought-provoking stories to create compelling theatre

This is the first book to chronicle this iconic theatre company, offering an account of its early years and development, its work, and the methodologies that have made it one of the most influential ensemble theatres today

Through extensive, in-depth interviews conducted by the author with ensemble members, the book reveals the story of Steppenwolf's miraculous rise from basement to Broadway and beyond

Interviewees include co-founders Jeff Perry, Gary Sinise and Terry Kinney, along a myriad of ensemble, staff, board members and others


"If you love theatre, and particularly ensemble theatre, John Mayer is about to take you on a 'first-time-ever VIP tour' into everything Steppenwolf" ~ Jeff Perry
