Sheila Daniels has been named associate director of Seattle’s Intiman Theater, to work alongside artistic director Bartlett Sher. Daniels has held leadership posts at several of the city’s most fertile fringe outfits, including Theater Schmeater and Capitol Hill Arts Center.
In the 2008 season, Daniels will stage a production of “A Streetcar Named Desire” for Intiman. She will also shoulder various artistic and producing duties at a time when Sher is in increasing demand nationwide. (The Intiman a.d. will direct the first Broadway revival of “South Pacific” this spring for Lincoln Center Theater, while his production of “Il Barbiere di Siviglia” returns to the Metropolitan Opera in repertory in January.)
Daniels’ past credits include critically lauded productions of “Waiting for Lefty” and “Crime and Punishment” at CHAC. She will assume her post at Intiman Dec. 10.
