Steppenwolf Theatre Company: Twenty-Five Years of an Actor's Theater by Victor Skrebneski

For a few days I’m thinking about collection Kathryn’s entire theater work and add a new tab here at my blog. I started to collect data and articles yesterday. Of course I made also a picture hunt. With Kathryn Erbe Theater I found a few pictures of GLAAD, Talk Radio, the USA Upfronts, Cirque du Soleil and the Opening Night of Almeida Theater Production's Festen I never saw before. Yeah, these events didn’t really belong to Kathryn and Theater, but I love to have new photos of her.

One article moved me to the next picture and so on and so on. Finally I stopped again at the beautiful Kathryn Erbe photo and cap collection. I also visited cinberblock42’s LJ and found out even more information.

I didn’t know that this beautiful shooting photo was bought on ebay from cinderblock and she scanned it so we all have the pleasure to enjoy Kathryn.

I knew that these two pics were taken for the Steppenwolf Theatre Company. I thought it were promo pictures or stuff like that, but didn’t think of a book as source.
So I ended with browsing through US ebay and amazon for:

ney, Laurie Metcalf, Terry Kinney, Jeff Perry, Frank Galati, Glenne Headly, Gary Cole, Kevin Anderson, Martha Plimpton and many others.

…and ordered this morning my used like new version for 13 € (including shipping). I can’t wait to have the book in my hand, even if there are only two pictures of Kathryn inside.

I need to read all the theatre articles, make a time line of Kathryn’s on stage jobs and more. Then I’ll open the next tab here at Lovely Kathryn.
