See both parts of Tony Kushner's Pulitzer-winning play as part of the 2014 Intiman Theatre Festival. This modern American masterpiece takes a wry look at the AIDS epidemic and the political and social climate of America in the '80s. Millennium Approaches follows the disintegration of two very different but equally troubled young New York couples whose fates become intertwined. Its large and wide-ranging cast of sharply drawn characters includes the notorious, AIDS-stricken lawyer Roy Cohn and the apocalyptic Angel who come together and clash over the personal, the political and the theological. In Angels in America, Part Two: Perestroika, the AIDS epidemic is escalating, the ozone layer is weakening and God has abandoned all mankind. Kushner creates a cosmic-scale portrait of legendary characters including ancient rabbis, blind revolutionaries, imaginary travel agents and, of course, angels. The two parts will be performed in repertory along with a series of staged readings, talkbacks, panel discussions, special events and other additional programming that will contextualize and illuminate the many themes and situations of Angels in America.

- *"_Trouble in Mind_":http://www.intiman.org/plays-events/trouble-in-mind/
Directed by Valerie Curtis-Newton, By Alice Childress*
Run Time: 128 minutes with 15 minute intermission
Broadway, 1957. An integrated theatre company gathers to rehearse a new play—the one they hope will be the next big hit on the Great White Way. Against the backdrop of misperceptions and stereotypes within the company, veteran actress Wiletta Mayer grapples with the choice between a once in a lifetime chance to play the lead role in a Broadway show, and the cost of compromising her principles. Trouble in Mind is a groundbreaking backstage story of egos and attitudes, and an insightful look at who we are and who we want to be.
“The timing of Intiman Theatre Festival’s valuable revival of Alice Childress’ seriocomedy Trouble in Mind is certainly propitious … With scathing wit and bold candor, Trouble in Mind stakes out territory where few playwrights, today or more than 50 years ago, have dared to tread.”—_”Seattle Times":http://seattletimes.com/html/thearts/2021465049_troubleinmindxml.html_
Directed by Sheila Daniels Aristophanes*
Run Time: 85 minutes with no intermission
Make love, not war! Lysistrata is a woman on a mission, rallying the women of her community to put an end to a senseless war by denying their husbands their most basic desires. It’s the ultimate battle of the sexes! Directed by award-winner Sheila Daniels, Aristophanes’ audacious story of an anti-war sex strike is brimming with innuendo and bawdy fun that has soul stirring insights into the folly of war and the struggles between the sexes.
“Just go with it, and accept that flaming female hotties garbed like Vegas showgirls are waging this battle of the sexes. They’re urged to join the crusade started by the firebrand Lysistra. Played with vigor and charisma by Shontina Vernon, Lysistrata has the right stuff to convert trash-talkin’, sexed-up babes to (temporary) abstinence.”—Seattle Times
Stu for Silverton
Directed by Andrew Russell, Book by Peter Duchan, Music and Lyrics by Breedlove
Run Time: 125 minutes with a 15 minute intermission
Once upon a time, not too long ago, a new American folk hero was born in the small town of Silverton, Oregon. A lifelong resident of Silverton, Stu Rasmussen was launched into the spotlight when he became America’s first openly transgender Mayor in 2008. Struggling to overcome the weight of adversity, Stu found uncompromising support and love in the most unlikely of places. Based on true-life events, with music and lyrics by Brooklyn-based songwriter Breedlove and book by acclaimed playwright Peter Duchan, this new musical blends Our Town with The Rocky Horror Picture Show and tells a surprising story full of heart and hope in humanity. Stu’s story is one of not compromising, being entirely yourself, and believing in the power of change – in cities big and small.
“Watching Rasmussen’s thrill of sudden self-awareness also inspires a little envy: Why can’t everyone have a similarly crystallizing moment when the meaning of our lives is revealed to us in song and dance?”—The Stranger
*_We Won’t Pay! We Won’t Pay!
_**Directed by Jane Nichols, Written by Dario Fo, Translated by Ron Jenkins*
Run Time: 130 minutes
With the price of groceries on the rise, what’s a gal to do? Spontaneously protest by stuffing food down her shirt and pretend to be pregnant of course! This side-splitting Dario Fo farce is a playful romp full of heart and high jinx, ultimately illuminating the buoyancy and resilience of the human spirit as it comes up against everyday life struggles. Directed by the queen of clowning, Jane Nichols, We Won’t Pay! We Won’t Pay! will unite audiences in laughter and remind us all of our common humanity.
“If the festival’s subsequent productions maintain this level of wit and workmanship, 2013 will be a memorable year for the evolving Intiman brand.”—Seattle Weekly
