Intiman Theatre's 2014 Festival

Intiman Theatre's 2014 Festival to feature 20th anniversary production of Tony Kushner's Pulitzer Prize winning American masterpiece Angels in America performed in repertory as part of The Angels Project

Seattle, WA - Last fall, Intiman Theatre announced its plans to produce both parts of Tony Kushner's acclaimed epic Angels In America as part of its annual Theatre Festival.

Pacific Northwest audiences will be given the rare opportunity to see Millennium Approaches and Perestroika, the two parts that make up Angels in America, in alternating repertory performances at Intiman's long-term home, the Cornish Playhouse (201 Mercer Street), in late summer of 2014.

The planned 2014 Festival is entitled The Angels Project and will consist of Angels in America Parts 1 and 2, with a possible third play currently under consideration. In addition, the theatre will organize readings, talkbacks, parties, panel discussions, special events and other programming that will contextualize and illuminate the many themes and situations presented in Kushner's modern American classic.

In 1994, Artistic Director Warner Shook snagged the rights to produce the first regional theatre production after Millennium Approaches won the Tony Award on Broadway. Twenty years later, his brave and masterful production still remains in the memories of those who attended.

'Angels is like an opera without music, one of the great American plays, and captures an American dynamic that still today is relevant and resonant,' Producing Artistic Director Andrew Russell said. 'Producing both of these plays in repertory will give Seattle actors and designers a unique and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I look forward to sharing this magical and moving story with an entirely new generation of audiences.'

Additional programming for The Angels Project will be announced in the coming weeks.

Millennium Approaches won the 1993 Tony for Best Play and the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and Perestroika won the 1994 Tony Award for Best Play. Intiman's production of Millennium Approaches closed the 1994 season, and Perestroika opened the 1995 season. In 2003, both plays were adapted into an HBO mini-series directed by Mike Nichols.

As part of its annual fundraising cycle, Intiman Theatre has launched the Take Flight fundraising campaign. The theatre is now accepting donations that will go directly towards producing The Angels Project. Since launching the fundraising campaign in late September, by the beginning of November over 150 individual donors had come forward to donate towards the 2014 Festival.

In keeping with its deep commitment to the theatre, and to ensure necessary resources to adequately produce this important production, Intiman Theatre's board of trustees has committed to 100 percent donor participation for the 2014 Festival.

Donations can be mailed to PO Box 19537, Seattle WA 98109, or made online at Intiman.org.

Intiman Theatre is a Tony Award winning regional theatre founded in 1972. Over the past 40 years the theatre has been host to artistic directors Margaret Booker, Liz Huddle, Warner Shook, Bartlett Sher and Kate Whoriskey. Intiman is known for producing bold classical productions and epic new works, including Angels in America, The Kentucky Cycle, The Light in the Piazza, and Ruined. The theatre has presented over 200 productions to Seattle audiences and celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2012 by launching the Intiman Theatre Festival, featuring a repertory company of actors in rotating productions.
