Casting Announced for Intiman's Othello, Abe Lincoln and Magical Thinking

News   Casting Announced for Intiman's Othello, Abe Lincoln and Magical Thinking
 
Elisabeth Waterston, Sean Patrick Thomas, John Campion and Steve Ray Dallimore will join the Theatre for a New Audience production of Othello when it arrives at Seattle's Intiman Theatre in July.

Arin Arbus staged the Off-Broadway production of Shakespeare's dark work, which played two engagements at the Duke on 42nd Street this past season. The Intiman run will play July 2-Aug. 2, again under Arbus' direction.

Sean Patrick Thomas ("A Raisin in the Sun") will assume the role of Othello, with Waterston (The Tempest) as Desdemona, Campion (Aunt Dan and Lemon) as Iago and Dallimore as Brabantio.

Returning Othello cast members include Denis Butkus, Lucas Hall, Robert Langdon Lloyd, Christian Rummel, Lucas Steele, Kate Forbes and Elizabeth Meadows Rouse.

As previously reported, the Intiman scuttled its resident production of Othello, which was to be staged by the company's Tony-winning artistic director Bartlett Sher (South Pacific, Joe Turner's Come and Gone). The import of TFANA's Othello allows for Sher to begin work transitioning out of his position as artistic director of the Intiman and appoint a successor.

The Intiman has also announced that Judith Roberts will star in The Year of Magical Thinking, directed by Sarna Lapine (Aug. 21-Sept. 20); and the cast of Abe Lincoln in Illinois (Oct. 2-Nov. 15) will feature Erik Lochtefeld as Lincoln with Mary Jane Gibson, Hans Altwies, Clayton Corzatte, Susan Corzatte, Philip Davidson, Angela DiMarco, Russell Hodgkinson, Reginald André Jackson, Peter Dylan O’Connor, Jose Rufino, Matt Shimkus, Richard Nguyen Sloniker, Adam Standley, Kate Wisniewski and R. Hamilton Wright. Sheila Daniels directs. The holiday offering Langston Hughes' Black Nativity (Dec. 1-27), will be staged by Jacqueline Moscou and feature Pastor Patrinell Wright, Gospel Queen and music director, and members of her Total Experience Gospel Choir.

Tickets for productions at the Intiman, 201 Mercer Street at Seattle Center, can be purchased by calling (206) 269-1900.
