Associate Professor of Theatre Robin Witt is directing a production of A Doll’s House, Part 2 at Chicago’s Steppenwolf Theatre, one of the premiere ensemble theatre companies in the United States. The production runs January 31-March 17 and has been announced by the Chicago Tribune as one of the top 10 Chicago theatre events of 2019: “Robin Witt’s direction of a string of storefront successes in Chicago has been superb. In 2019, she gets her chance at the Steppenwolf Theatre, directing the improbably but hugely enjoyable Broadway hit from the wacky but resonant playwright Lucas Hnath.”

Witt, who teaches directing at UNC Charlotte, has nurtured a long and productive directing career in Chicago. She has twice won a Joseph Jefferson (Jeff) Award, honoring non-Equity Chicago theatre, receiving the “Best Director (Play)” award in 2015 and 2016.
