If you love theatre, and particularly ensemble theatre, John Mayer is about to take you on a 'first-time-ever VIP tour' into everything Steppenwolf. * Jeff Perry * [Mayer] includes extracts from interviews with literally dozens of those that have helped the company to become one of the best and best-known in the world today. Reading about a theatre company that started out in school then conquered the world ... is fascinating. It should persuade readers to do their damnedest to find a Steppenwolf production on stage or screen in the near future and also prove an inspiration to any youngsters considering starting out on the road to a career as an actor, director [or] writer. * British Theatre Guide * In his masterful book, John Mayer brings to life the Steppenwolf history and mystique in a winning meld of well-turned exposition and engrossing "spoken" reflections from many of the actors and behind-the-scenes creators who helped shape the theatre in its early years and beyond ... Even for those theater-lovers unable to experience Steppenwolf's greatness in person, this outstanding "living history" will enlighten and delight. * TheaterJones * This captivating book traces the trial-and-error development and expansion of a community-based theatre company which started out as the adventurous enterprise of a few inspired high school students. * This Year's Work in English Studies *
