When I see a play like THE CRUCIBLE slated in a theater season, I have to wonder why. Arthur Miller’s classic allegory is certainly timeless, but often-produced. What makes this production different from any other?
Steep Theatre recently announced the commission of a new play by Chicago-based playwright Calamity West. The commission is a first for the 15-year-old theater and will mark the first time West and Steep have worked together. This partnership, according to Steep, “will be an exciting next step, as will Steep’s 16th season, scheduled to be announced in June, a season which will include the ensemble’s second world premiere in as many seasons.”
