Each year Intiman Theatre offers the Emerging Artist Program, a packed no-cost program for artists who are preparing for careers in the performing arts. The program culminates with a series of short solo performances. And now, newly expanded versions of these new shows arrive at 18th & Union. A festival of original work that has something for everyone: beards, stand-up comedy, Grandmas, child dance competitions, Duolingo, queer motherhood, pastors, La Croix, race as a construct, classical piano, first date blues, AND SO MUCH MORE.
