Steppenwolf produced the world preem of “Detroit” in the fall, when the show garnered critical support, including a positive notice from a visiting journo from the New York Times.

Austin Pendleton is set to reprise his directorial duties for the Broadway incarnation, although casting remains to be firmed up. The Windy City staging starred Laurie Metcalf, Kate Arrington, Kevin Anderson, Ian Barford and Robert Breuler.
