(Misha Berson, The Seattle Times) Since the Tony Award-winning Intiman Theatre suspended its operations in April, nonprofit arts groups including the Seattle Shakespeare Company and Market Productions have used the well-equipped, 440-seat Intiman Playhouse on a rental basis. And there has been much speculation in the arts community about the future of the popular Seattle Center venue.
According to Deborah Daoust, director of communications for city-run Seattle Center, the center is now eyeing a summer residency for the Intiman and considering other anchor tenants that might manage and occupy the theater on an extended basis as well.
“What we’re working on right now with Intiman is to make sure they have a place to have their season,” said Daoust. “They are fundraising for it right now.”
