In signature style, Steppenwolf Theatre Company’s Women in the Arts annual luncheon added award-winning actress and original ensemble member Laurie Metcalf to its roster of incredible honorees (the event has previously saluted the ever-so-talented Mary Louise Parker and Julianna Margulies, to name a few). Steppenwolf cofounder Jeff Perry introduced Metcalf and highlighted her incredible work while more than 300 guests indulged in lunch and were then inspired by the Emmy Award winner’s engaging insight and personal stories. Metcalf spoke about some of her most notable roles, including those on Roseanne and The Big Bang Theory, before taking a stroll down memory lane to the early days of her roles at Steppenwolf. Best of all, guests raised nearly $175,000 to go toward training for young leaders in the arts. Hats off to you! -Photos by Mark Cambell and Kyle Flubacker
