When video games stop being games -- when the onscreen targets are real places and the "kills" are actual fatalities -- the effects are anything but virtual. In Leveling Up, the brilliant play by Deborah Zoe Laufer, three twenty-something roommates play video games holed up in a Las Vegas basement, cocksure masters of their digital domains. But when the National Security Agency comes calling, one of them is lured into using his considerable skills to launch actual drones and missiles. Suddenly online battles have real-world consequences. Directed by Hallie Gordon, Leveling Up typifies the theme for Steppenwolf for Young Adult's 2013-2014 season: "When the game turns deadly, how will you play?" Learn More

Loved the cast except for the actor who played Natasha who took away from the authenticity of the Chechov characters, loved the decor .I don't think the choice of the actor playing Natasha was appropriate for depicting a Russian aristocrat of the time.She was rather loud not sofisticated.She brought a flavor of her culture rather then the Russian low class female who thru manipulation and malice well hidden, rised up to become burgeoise and the person who seemed to have accomplished everything.
The message of the play was loud and clear.
Director Anna D. Shapiro notes, “Three Sisters is a play about a certain kind of paralysis. It is about all of the things we construct in the future that keep us immobilized in the day. There are unhappy marriages, unrequited love, duels and really nasty in-laws. And everybody’s trying to get somewhere else. And it’s funny. Funny in the way that serious human folly can be funny.”
The parking structure for the theater is rather modest. Please allow ample time for parking.
