To close out the local run of Ruined, Intiman Theatre is having a Farewell Cabaret on Monday, August 16, at 7pm, hosted by Daniel Breaker (aka Donkey in Broadway’s Shrek, star of the upcoming Intiman production A Doctor in Spite of Himself, and husband to artistic director Kate Whoriskey). Members of the Ruined cast will sing some of their favorite songs, with accompaniment by musicians Simon Shabantu Kashama and Ron McBee. We already love hearing Condola Rashad (Sophie) sing, but now we get to see what David St. Louis (Commander Osembenga), Stephen Tyrone Williams (Simon; also Cory Maxson in Fences at Seattle Rep), and company member Victoire Charles can do. A party in the Intiman courtyard will follow; tickets are $50 at intiman.org, and proceeds support the theater’s traveling production of Ruined in South Africa this fall.
