Steppenwolf’s "AOC" – National Tour planned

A scene from Broadway's 'August Osage County The producers of the Purlitzer Prize winning, 7-time Tony-nominated August: Osage County, written by Chicago playwright Tracy Letts (and directed by Steppenwolf’s Anne D. Shapiro), have just announced that they will be mounting a national tour of the play in 2009,

The tour’s first stop will be San Francisco’s Curran Theatre, August 11th-September 6th, 2009.  Subsequent 2009 engagements have yet to be announced.

Although August premiered here in Chicago, and enjoyed a sold-out extended run at Steppenwolf Theatre, I’m hoping that the tour will make a pit stop back in the Windy City.  I would definitely love to see it again!

August: Osage County can currently be seen on Broadway at The Music Box Theatre on 45th Street.  More info is available here.
