STAGE TUBE: STU FOR SILVERTON, LYSISTRATA, and More to Play Intiman Theater in 2013

‚Äč

Next summer's Intiman Theatre Festival will feature shows about topics you're not supposed to talk about at dinner – race, sex, politics and money. Building on Intiman Theatre's history as a place that tackles big questions through stories and champions diversity on stage, we are planning to produce:

Trouble In Mind – An integrated Acting Company in 1957 comes together to rehearse a new play in Alice Childress' groundbreaking comedy-drama of race and representation in the American theatre. Directed by Valerie Curtis-Newton (Intiman's All My Sons and Dirty Story)

Lysistrata: Aristophanes' story of women who withhold sex from their husbands in an effort to stop war, directed by Sheila Daniels (Intiman's Crime and Punishment, A Streetcar Named Desire, and Abe Lincoln in Illinois)

Stu for Silverton: A new musical about the mayor of Silverton, Oregon – the unlikely and surprising story of America's first transgender mayor and his community – with book by Peter Duchan, music and lyrics by Breedlove, directed by Artistic Director Andrew Russell

We Won't Pay! We Won't Pay! – Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo at his funniest and most socially relevant in this laugh out loud farce about money, class, and the resiliency of the human spirit. Directed by the queen of clowning and physical theatre, Jane Nichols.

With a creative team of directors, writers, and designers that is half men and women, we're proud to bring you this variety of under-represented stories –a frank discussion of race on stage, America's first transgender mayor, women empowered during a time of war, and a poignant middle class romp – while collaborating with almost 100 local artist and artisans.
