Steven’s early plays dealt more with characters on personal journeys of expression in themes of creativity, fantasy and enlightenment, while experimenting in hybrids with cinematic story structures.
His more current work goes further adding themes of spirituality, sexuality and family dynamics, adhering to more traditional theatrical structures.
Steve Fogelman is not only a playwright, actor, and singer, but also an accomplished painter, chef, designer and filmmaker. It is these diverse interests that exposed him to unique experiences and situations, allowing him to integrate them into his crafts with acute honesty and complexity.
Steve first developed his visual skills receiving a bachelor’s degree in architecture from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh. An exchange year in Lausanne, Switzerland not only benefited him becoming fluent in French, but he also gained a passion for haute cuisine, foreign languages and accents that are now hallmarks of some of his short plays.
For a year after graduation he studied at Pittsburgh Filmmakers before moving to Los Angeles to work as a film art director. Steve soon decided to persue acting, spending three years studying at The Lee Strasberg Theater Institute, where his passion for art became and early version of the play, Hey Picasso!.
After, the production of Hey, Picasso! and several companies performing his short play Day One, he missed the writing on the wall to become a playwright and hurled himself into the LA dream of screenwriting, studying the craft of story structure at Writer’s Boot Camp where he completed the features, My Guy, Dead or Alive and The First Gentleman.
He took his filmmaking knowledge and joined Filmmakers Alliance, with whome he wrote, produced and directed several shorts, most notably Limbo, which screened at the Tiburon, Ashville and New Orleans film festivals.
Now back on track in New York since the spring of 2012 with the focus on theater,. Steve has taken opportunities to hone his skills with director Sam Gold and noted playwrights Will Eno and Annie Baker, Josh Harmon, completing four full-length plays, charrette, Leg of Lam, Musical Chairs and tran-si-tions, of which the latter was selected for the 2016 New York Fringe festival. His one-acts, Breeders Cup and Genius, were produced off-off Broadway in September 2013 through Love Creek Productions.

Across the Black Sea
Set in 1985, ‘charrette’ follows five flawed senior architecture students, having 24 hours to design a city of the future over Spring Break or risk not graduating on time. They pull an ‘all-nighter’ to complete the task with the quality and scope of each project as a metaphor for the path and goals for their own lives. This 20/20 hindsight tracks the progress on women's issues, gay rights and racial bias, and how much more compassion is needed. And while the story starts as a clash of egos, it escalates to a frenzy of secrets, jealousy and unrequited love unraveling to tragic consequences, as futures are forever altered.
Judaism believes that Jesus was not the Messiah, but that the Messiah will indeed someday come. That day is today, and that Man of God happens to be 23-year old Columbia journalism grad student, Benny Dreyfus. After returning from a two-week trip to Israel, he makes the pronouncement he will no longer be Jewish, sending his orthodox family into turmoil, setting his destiny in motion.
Benny’s father, David - a rabbinical school theologian, and their shabbos goy, Magda, have known about Benny’s gifts, though the mother, Susan, who grew up a reformed Jew but ‘upgraded’ to Orthodox to be David’s wife, never accepted her son’s symptoms as gifts. Her overwhelming feelings of betrayal for all she gave up and coming to terms with reality, cause her a nervous breakdown.
The family struggles to map out a plan to move forward and heal, but in the end know where there is love, there is happiness.
Laws of Attraction
Leg of Lam
This play of Afghan war vet, Lamar Delgado, who needs his father, Oscar’s, help to remove his leg, is more than a surface story of a man suffering with a disorder, but intended as a timely mythical allegory of every human’s quest to eliminate the negative effect of past personal traumas and generations of familial dysfunctions to be the true expression of their soul’s intention.
