25,000 Posts "The autobiographical solo show, like the violin, is one of God's most delicate creations. Played well, it's heaven; played badly, it's hell. 25,000 Posts, by actor, father, and real-estate-sign installer James Lapan, sits in the upper reaches of purgatory: It has some great pleasure, insight, and promise of being even better, though at times it feels too long. It begins with a tutorial on installing the for-sale signs you see in front lawns and parking strips around town, which takes more work... more » $5-$20.

Endangered Species Project: The Iceman Cometh

Mon Sept 15 at 8 pm.

Watch for the announcement of the next two Endangered Species Project productions, which are scheduled for October 6 and November 3. $25.

Black Comedy

Thu-Sat at 8 pm. Through Sept 20.


"The central conceit of Peter Shaffer's 1965 slapstick about a callow young London sculptor who has invited over two people he wants to impress (his girlfriend's strict father and a millionaire art collector) is simple: When the lights are on in the play, the theater is dark; when a fuse blows in the sculptor's apartment building, the lights come up, allowing us to enjoy watching them grope, fall, and try to get away with things in the dark. The cast is capable, and Shaffer keeps raising the sta... more » $36.

Angels in America: Millenium Approaches & Perestroika If part one of Angels in America is a fever dream, part two is a kaleidoscopic seizure. Intiman's ambitious summer production, directed by Andrew Russell, fulfills the play's two-part rhythm. Millennium Approaches, which opened August 12 and sets up the terrestrial world of its characters during the late-80s AIDS crisis—some powerful, some powerless—felt well-intentioned but a little anemic. (To be fair, it has lots of fans, both among the critics and in theater lobbies and bars. I'm just not on... more » $35-$56.

Waiting for Godot

Wed-Sat at 7:30 pm, Sun at 2 pm. Sept 3 through Sept 21.


Waiting for Godot "As the lights come up on this precisely orthodox production of Beckett's classic about two existentially exhausted tramps waiting for a savior who will never arrive, actor Darragh Kennan sits scowling on a stone, tugging at his boots. His counterpart, the tall and elegant Todd Jefferson Moore stands looking offstage with an expression that is simultaneously vacant, hopeful, and despairing. It takes a master actor to inflect one gaze with so much subtlety. Jefferson—as the slightly less world-we... more » $29-$43.
