A special Valentine's Day treat: Daniel Breaker hosts another Intiman cabaret
Looking for something a little different to treat your honey to this Valentine's Day? Check out the "Valentine's Cabaret" at Intiman Theatre.
Last August, after the impressive run of Lynn Nottage's “Ruined” at Intiman, members of the cast put together a fundraising “cabaret” as a way to thank Seattle theater patrons for turning out in record numbers. Daniel Breaker, the immensely talented actor/singer/comedian who happens to be married to Intiman artistic director Kate Whoriskey, hosted the evening, which became an unexpectedly spectacular highlight of the 2010 theater season. (By itself, Condola Rashad's temperature-raising rendition of "Fever" was worth the price of admission.)
Breaker and Rashad are doing it again on February 14 at 7:30 p.m. at Intiman (201 Mercer St.). They'll be joined by Seattle jazz treasure Jose Gonzales, zany singer/actor Nick Garrison, funny man Don Darryl Rivera and writer/performer Colman Domingo. Expect plenty of jazz and R&B standards, as well as some Sinatra and Beatles hits. If last summer's event is any indication, you'll be thrilled you ponied up the $100 for a pair of tickets. Buy them here or call 206.269.1900.
