Steep Theater Tackles Manifest Destiny with The Hollow Lands

Forget Little House on the Prairie and the myth of America's westward expansion. Think of HBO's Deadwood and the Steep Theater's The Hollow Lands. Dueling Critics Jonathan Abarbanel and Kelly Kleiman review this epic story that begins in Manhattan, covers 40 years, thousands of miles, and three hours at the Steep Theatre in Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood.
