Due to popular demand, Steppenwolf Theatre has added a second performance of Audra McDonald in Concert on May 22 at 9pm at Steppenwolf's Downstairs Theatre. Presented by the LookOut Series and Mark Cortale, the concert features six-time Tony Award winner Audra McDonald with host and pianist Seth Rudetsky and a special guest appearance by McDonald's husband, Tony nominee Will Swenson.

Steppenwolf’s LookOut Series has also announced a slate of programming for spring curated by Chicago artists Sandra Delgado and Sandra Marquez (also a Steppenwolf ensemble member). Delgado is the playwright and star of Teatro Vista’s upcoming production of La Havana Madrid, running this spring in Steppenwolf’s 1700 Theatre (April 14-May 21) as part of the theater’s Visiting Company Initiative.
