Always Do a Little More


The filmmakers who have done such a wonderful job documenting events for my foundation have also done a fine job with this new documentary. It examines some of the early seeds that were planted for the military and veterans support mission that I am on, seeds that manifested into the creation of the Gary Sinise Foundation. Family history, Steppenwolf Theatre, LT Dan Band and veterans who have inspired me are given a look in this film and it is now available on the Gary Sinise Foundation website. All proceeds go to supporting our mission. Take a look.

Thank you.

Your pal,

Steppenwolf Theatre Company of Chicago: In Their Own Words

"Release day for this new book on Steppenwolf Theatre. Proud to have co founded this company with my pals 42 years ago." -GS

Summary from Amazon: "In 1974, a group of determined, young high school actors started doing plays under the name of Steppenwolf Theatre Company, eventually taking residence in the basement of a church in Highland Park, a suburb of Chicago. Thus began their unlikely journey to become one of the most prominent theatre companies in the world.

This is the first book to chronicle this iconic theatre company, offering an account of its early years and development, its work, and the methodologies that have made it one of the most influential ensemble theatres today."

Now Available: Amazon / Barnes & Noble
