For all you up-and-coming theatre directors out there, here's a profile of the woman who should be your guru. Her name is Sheila Daniels, and she recently took on the title of Associate Artistic Director at Intiman after 15 years of kicking butt in the local fringe scene. From the article:
The stage and the audience are more than twice the scale she's used to. And the budget? "Nothing on the set will be from my living room. That's a first," Daniels says...This play is Shakespeare," she says. "Shakespeare with New Orleans accents and 100 props.Her first big project at Intiman was directing A Streetcar Named Desire, which previews this week. Read Brendan Kiley's profile in the Stranger, then go see the show (which is recommended for people 16 and up). I have a feeling you won't regret it.
A Streetcar Named Desire previews July 3rd - 8th and performs July 9th - August 2nd at INTIMAN Theatre.
