Remember Seattle’s Intiman Theatre?
The formerly top regional company went bungee jumping off a financial cliff in April 2011 (for reasons that still don’t seem to have seen the light of day) and closed its doors mid season.
Then in the summer of 2012 they unlocked the place and came back with a summer theatre festival. In 2013 they did the same thing again, with great results like STU FOR SILVERTON, a new musical about the transgender mayor of Silverton, Oregon.
And in 2014, they’re back again with the full ANGELS IN AMERICA oeuvre.
Intiman still has it. While the physical building in the Seattle Center no longer says “Intiman” and has since been taken over by a local arts school, when Intiman gets the keys each summer, the old spirit and excitement is undeniably back.
So get ye to Seattle next summer when the sun is out, and check out the Intiman Theatre Festival.
