News   Intiman Theatre to Stage Angels in America Parts One and Two in Rep
The Intiman Theatre will stage both parts of Tony and Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner's Angels in America in repertory as part of its 2014 summer theatre festival.

Entitled The Angels Project, the summer event will include Millennium Approaches and Perestroika. A third title, currently under consideration, may potentially be added to the lineup. The Intiman will also present readings, talkbacks, panel discussions, special events and other programming based on the themes of Kushner's landmark dramas. "Angels is like an opera without music, one of the great American plays, and captures an American dynamic that still today is relevant and resonant," Intiman producing artistic director Andrew Russell said in a statement. "Producing both of these plays in repertory will give Seattle actors and designers a unique and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and I look forward to sharing this magical and moving story with an entirely new generation of audiences."

The summer festivals are a new programming model for the Intiman, which returned in 2012 after closing its doors in April 2011 due to financial struggles. Under Russell's leadership, the Intiman's summer theatre festivals showcase homegrown Seattle talent, innovative new works and re-imagined classics.
