Meet the Denizens of Steppenwolf's Airline Highway

Lisa D’Amour’s drama plays Chicago before opening on Broadway.

Before the Steppenwolf Theatre Company production of Lisa D'Amour's Airline Highway opens on Broadway at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on April 23, get your first look at the characters in this ambitious new drama.

Airline Highway follows a ragtag group of strippers, hustlers, and philosophers who have gathered at a once-glamorous New Orleans motel to celebrate the life of Miss Ruby, an iconic burlesque performer who has requested a pre-mortem funeral. The show is described as an "ode to the outcasts that make life a little more interesting."

The drama, which runs in Chicago through February 8, stars Robert Breuler, Kate Buddeke, K. Todd Freeman, Carolyn Braver, Chris Daley, Stephen Louis Grush, Terry Hamilton, Scott Jaeck, Toni Martin, Caroline Neff, Tim Edward Rhoze, Judith Roberts, Brenann Stacker, Gordon Joseph Weiss, and Jacqueline Williams. Joe Mantello directs.
