Photo Flash: Sneak Peek at Steppenwolf's GRAND CONCOURSE in Rehearsal

Steppenwolf Theatre Company presents the Chicago premiere production of Grand Concourse, a play full of both humor and heart by Heidi Schreck and directed by ensemble member Yasen Peyankov. Grand Concourse begins previews July 2, 2015 (Opening night is July 12, 2015; Press performances are July 11 at 3pm and July 14 at 7:30pm) and runs through August 30, 2015 in Steppenwolf's Downstairs Theatre (1650 N Halsted St). BroadwayWorld has a sneak peek at the cast in rehearsal below!

Shelley runs a Bronx soup kitchen with unsentimental efficiency, but lately her heart is not quite in her job -- or her faith. When Emma -- a driven yet erratic college dropout -- arrives to volunteer, her volatile mix of generosity and self-involvement brings Shelley's bubbling midlife crisis to a boil. Warm, funny and compassionate, Grand Concourse introduces you to some fascinating everyday people trying to figure out the enigma of faith, the limits of forgiveness and how to find a little peace.

The cast features ensemble member Mariann Mayberry as Shelley with ensemble member Tim Hopper as Frog until August 9, at which point he begins rehearsals for Steppenwolf's 2015/16 season opener, John Steinbeck's East of Eden. Ensemble member Francis Guinan will take on the role of Frog beginning August 11 through the end of the run. The cast also features Brittany Uomoleale as Emma and Victor Almanzar as Oscar in their Steppenwolf debuts.

The production team includes Joey Wade (scenic design), Natasha Dukich (costume design), Scott Zielinski (lighting design) and Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (sound design and original music). Additional credits include Erica Daniels (casting), Laura D. Glenn (stage manager) and Cassie Calderone and Jonathan Nook (assistant stage managers).

Tickets ($20-$89) are on sale now through Audience Services (1650 N Halsted), at 312-335-1650 and steppenwolf.org.
