Casting Complete For BUG By Tracy Letts At Steppenwolf; Tickets On Sale Friday
Steppenwolf Theatre Company announces the addition of ensemble member Randall Arney in the role of 'Dr. Sweet' to the cast of Bug by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning ensemble member Tracy Letts, directed by Tony Award winner David Cromer (January 23 - March 8, 2020). Completing the cast of this acclaimed cult classic are Chicago favorites Jennifer Engstrom (R.C.) and Steve Key (Jerry Goss) along with previously announced ensemble members Carrie Coon (Agnes White) and Namir Smallwood (Peter Evans).
In a seedy Oklahoma motel room, a lonely waitress begins an unexpected love affair with a young drifter. And then they see the first bugs... Tracy Letts's mind-bending cult classic - a luridly funny tale of love, paranoia, and government conspiracy - roars back to Chicago for its Steppenwolf debut.
