Intiman artistic director Bartlett Sher will stage the drama; performances dates have yet to be announced. This will be the fourth production of Othello for Intiman audiences; however, it marks Sher's first stab at the classic. He has previously directed Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus and Richard III for the Intiman.
The Tony-winning director was also named director in residence of Lincoln Center Theater, where his critically acclaimed production of South Pacific is currently enjoying an open-ended run.
The Intiman season also includes Marilyn Campbell and Curt Columbus' adaptation of Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment, directed by Sheila Daniels; Herb Gardner's Tony-winning 1963 play A Thousand Clowns, directed by Sari Ketter; and Joan Didion's intimate account of loss, The Year of Magical Thinking.
Intiman will also launch its second American Cycle, continuing its series of classic American stories and free community programs.
Dates, casting and creative duties for the Intiman season will be announced in the coming months. Tickets for productions at the Intiman, 201 Mercer Street at Seattle Center, can be purchased by calling (206) 269-1900.
