The clash of 2019 ideals and 2020 realities can be seen throughout the building. The new box office and gift shop for all Steppenwolf’s theaters are designed to be open and barrier-free. Welcoming new bars — one themed around wine, the other around ales — are intended to flow seamlessly from the theater to the street outside. Within the lobby, much effort has been expended to create one piece of connective tissue out of the three separate buildings at 1635-50 N. Halsted St. The idea, said the new executive director Brooke Flanagan, is for everyone — staff, artists, students, administrators, audience members, to run into everyone else.
