In a development likely to reshape, and possibly reignite, the Halsted Street corridor in Lincoln Park and impact the fiscal and artistic fortunes of the Steppenwolf Theatre Company for years to come, the storied Chicago theater broke ground in March 2019 on this project that will create a new education center and a 400-seat theater-in-the-round, built on the parking lot south of the theater’s current 1650 N. Halsted home.

This new expansion will create Steppenwolf's first extant education space and provide classroom and support space for the theater's education programming.

Total square feet: 110,000

Number of total seats: 995

Audience capacity for one year: 225,000
