His numerous regional theater credits include the Stratford Shakespeare Festival, Goodman Theatre, Arena Stage, Long Wharf Theatre, and A Contemporary Theatre. Steve has also worked off-off-Broadway at SoHo Rep and Blue Heron Theatre, and on Broadway in the Tony Award-winning production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman.

Also at the Odyssey, Steve most recently starred alongside John Heard in the west coast premiere of Caryl Churchill's A Number.
