Steppenwolf Theater Artistic Director Anna D. Shapiro Resigns

“The decision, one of many such wholesale changes as the Chicago theater slowly emerges from the COVID-19 crisis of closures, is not unexpected by close observers: Shapiro long ago signaled her intention to leave at the end of her current contract and the ensemble and board of directors has been engaged in succession planning.” – Yahoo!

Despite The Pandemic, Steppenwolf Is Building An Entire New Theater

“In March of last year, Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre officially announced its campus expansion: a new $54 million theater-in-the-round. Back then, theaters still staged live shows and cared not for streaming video. Zoom was a comic-book term.” Chris Jones goes on a hard-hat tour of the building-in-progress and talks with artistic director Anna D. Shapiro about the company’s multimillion-dollar bet that, soon, the show will go on like it did before. – Yahoo! (Chicago Tribune)
