The theater was comfortable. We called in advance and they provided good information for our New Year's Eve visit. Paring available for an extra charge ($10) in a parking deck just down the block. Also plenty of excellent restaurants on the same block.

The play was excellent . The seating comfortable.

I saw the Mikado at the Steppenwolf in November of last year. Gilbert and Sullivan are always funny, but I don't know if the re-imagination did it justice. The Steppenwolf theatre itself on the outside is rather plain-looking, but the plays are usually spectacular. I used the park whiz app on my iphone to find it and park, which saved me some money for food at the play. So much emotion and drama are present in every piece, so that even if you don't like the entire play, there are pieces that you will remember for years.

Steppenwolf Theatre puts on great performances and stage sets,
but the plays are too heavily laden with dysfunctional families, families with dysfunctional members and families in dysfunctional situations. And did I mention that they tend to focus on familial dysfunction. Otherwise, they're terrific.

I have seen two plays here in two years that have made it to Broadway and have received Tony Awards with the original casts. The author approved and oversaw their production of Virginia Wolf. We also saw August, Osage County which is now in movie production with Meryl Streep in the lead role. Fantastic, venue, no bad seats in the house. Even the front row seats are reasonable.

They are part of the establishment now, but Steppenwolf still manages to mount productions with the sass and verve that John Malkovich, Gary Sinese, Laurie Metcalf, et. al. started off with.
