It is an excellent example of the type of small local theater that is integral to Chicago’s cultural scene. Steep Theatre Company focuses on producing new and under-performed plays in an effort to bring these extraordinary stories to a wider audience In 2018, Steep acquired the storefront next door and transformed it into The Boxcar, a connected bar and lounge.
