According to a press statement, Steve is described as such: "As Steven, a failed Broadway chorus boy turned stay-at-home dad, celebrates yet another birthday, he finds himself filled with fear and uncertainty. Is Stephen, his partner of 14 years, cheating on him? Why is one of his best friends dying of cancer? And what, exactly, has he done with his life? A portrait of a group of longtime, theater-loving friends as they navigate the many facets of midlife and mortality, Mark Gerrard’s Steve is a biting and bittersweet comedy about relationships and the unavoidable consequences of aging and the passage of time."

Steve features scenic design by Allen Moyer, costume design by Tom Broecker, lighting design by Eric Southern, sound design by David Van Tieghem and projection design by Olivia Sebesky. Seth Rudetsky serves as music coordinator. Valerie A. Peterson serves as the production stage manager. Casting is by Judy Henderson, CSA.
