The Intiman Homecoming street party is being planned as a ticketed event and will fill Harvard with performance, vendors, and celebration between Pike and Pine the weekend of September 18th.
The event will celebrate the theater group’s new partnership and programs at Seattle Central:
On the final weekend of summer, Intiman will shut down Harvard Ave. in front of the Erickson Theatre (one of the theatre’s new producing homes) for HOMECOMING, an outdoor performing arts festival. This is a meet-your-new-neighbor bash with creative direction by Jennifer Zeyl and Wesley Frugé. The festival will feature over 20hrs of live performances, LGBTQ+ programming from BeautyBoiz, DJ sets, artist installations, vendors, food trucks, and a beer garden presented with Life on Mars.

Intiman has also announced details of its first productions…
In the winter, Intiman will open the doors to the Erickson Theatre for a reimagined revival of a classic production from the company’s 49-year history: THE MYSTERY OF IRMA VEP by Charles Ludlam, directed by Jasmine Joshua. This is a penny dreadful sci-fi romp that centers on an English estate haunted by the former mistress who has recently passed (or has she?). There are mummies, werewolves, mistaken identities, and a ton of madcap blunders. Two performers, dozens of wigs, and over forty quick-change costume changes bring an eclectic cast of six characters to life.

And finally, Intiman will present the Pacific Northwest premiere of TWO MILE HOLLOW by Leah Nanako Winkler, directed by Jesse Jou at Broadway Performance Hall. This comedy centers on a wealthy white family gathering together to dish secrets and drink wine one last time in their Hamptons estate before the home is sold. A cast of Asian American Pacific Islanders turns the “rich white family with secrets” genre on its head and splits it open for laughs and stinging insight.
