New name, same theater at Seattle Center
Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson writes:
The Seattle Center theater formerly known as Intiman Playhouse is now under the management of Cornish College of the Arts, and it has a new moniker: The Cornish Playhouse at Seattle Center.
According to Karen Bystrom, the Cornish College communications director, the 420+-seat, thrust-stage theater will be used by the college for its major student play and opera productions, and also available for outside groups to rent for “at least” 30 weeks a year. Intiman Theatre (which formerly managed the space) is renting the theater for its 2013 summer play festival, running June 21-Sept. 15.
Bystrom said more details about the programming of the Cornish Playhouse will be revealed by the end of the summer, and that Cornish College is raising funds to make improvements, most of them technical, to the facility. She noted that Cornish also is looking to present student events in other Seattle Center locales, with more details to follow later.
