News   Politics Take Center Stage in Intiman's All the King's Men Starting Sept. 26 The Intiman Theatre's production of the politically themed All the King's Men begins performances Sept. 26

Presented as the final installment of the Intiman's American Cycle, the production will officially open Oct. 3 and continue through Nov. 8 under the direction of Pam MacKinnon (The Occupant).

Adrian Hall's stage adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel penned by Robert Penn Warren is described by the Intiman as "a monumental tale of politics, power and history," tracing the ascent of politician Willie Stark in an unnamed Southern U.S. state in the 1930's.

John Procaccino (Good Boys and True) is cast as Willie Stark, the flamboyant politician based on former Louisiana governor and U.S. senate member Hughie P. Long, who was assassinated in 1935. Leo Marks (Defiance) portrays Stark's political right-hand man, Jack Burden.

The company also features Philip Davidson (Judge Irwin), Lori Larsen (Mother), Eddie Levi Lee (Tiny Duffy), Todd Licea (Adam Stanton), Deirdre Madigan (Sadie Burke), Peter Dylan O’Connor (Sugar-Boy), Larry Paulsen (Ellis Burden), Betsy Schwartz (Anne Stanton), Zaki Abdelhamid, Amy Fleetwood, Mark Fullerton, Alyssa Keene, Edd Key, James Lapan, Marty Mukhalian and Michael Patten.

Designing All the King's Men for the Intiman are scenic designer Tony Cisek, costume designer Deb Trout, lighting designer Colin K. Bills and sound designer Joseph Swartz. Original musical arrangements and musical direction are handled by Edd Key. As part of the mission of the American Cycle, the Intiman will offer a series of community readings and discussions about All the King's Men as well as high school playwriting intensives and lectures on Warren's 1946 novel.
