Whoriskey, who staged the Broadway revival of The Miracle Worker last season, succeeded Tony Award-winning director Bartlett Sher as artistic director of the Intiman. Sher exited his position to become the resident director of Lincoln Center Theater.
The 2010-2011 season at the Intiman will open with All My Sons, depicting an American family in crisis following WWII, under the direction of Valerie Curtis-Newton.
Intiman associate producer Andrew Russell will stage the world premiere of Tanya Barfield's The Call. The new play explores the challenges of adopting a child from another culture.
Whoriskey will direct J. M. Synge's The Playboy of the Western World. Tony Award nominee Daniel Breaker (Passing Strange, Shrek) will star in the comedy about a mysterious storyteller who captures the imagination of a small town.
Following will be The Piano Teacher, Cho's account of a music instructor who is visited by two former students. A director has not been announced for the production; however, Whoriskey staged the work Off-Broadway in 2007.
The final production will be a new stage adaptation of Washington Irving's The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, penned by Chloe Moss (This Wide Night). Anne Kauffman will direct the spooky classic about the headless horseman.
Complete dates of production will be announced shortly.
