The Great Leap, directed by BD Wong, will begin performances November 6. Wong originated the role of Wen Chang in the 2018 Off-Broadway premiere. (A production of the basketball-themed play will also play at the Steppenwolf this season.)

Sarna Lapine (Broadway's most recent Sunday in the Park With George) will direct a production of Annie Get Your Gun in the spring of 2020. The director brings the show to the West Coast in addition to her previously announced staging at Bay Street Theatre.

To close out the season, Tony Award nominee Alfred Molina will star in Florian Zeller's The Father, translated by Christopher Hampton. The show played on Broadway in 2016, earning Frank Langella his fourth Tony. A film adaptation starring Anthony Hopkins is currently in the works.
