John Mayer, author of the new book, “Steppenwolf Theatre Company of Chicago: In Their Own Words,” joins Justin to talk about how he put the book together, the roots of how Steppenwolf came to be, when the company moved to be something more real, how the production of  “Balm in Gilead” put the company on the national map, the importance of the ensemble, how the theater continues to thrive and what the theater means to him.
