Interview with an Actor: Timothy McCuen Piggee

INTERVIEW WITH TIMOTHY PIGGEE

Roles: Lord Capulet in Romeo and Juliet, GLoria Blaze in Miracle!, and Judge Brack in Hedda Gabler.

WHEN YOU WERE FIRST APPROACHED TO BE A PART OF THIS PROJECT, WHAT WENT THROUGH YOUR HEAD?

I was terribly excited; it seemed like a very interesting prospect. It also seems terribly insane at the same time, and I’m attracted by risk.

WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT THIS NEW MODEL, THIS NEW WAY OF GOING FORWARD FOR INTIMAN?

I think the unpredictability of it is what makes it so fun. I’ve done rep before, but this is the first time I’ve ever seen three projects rehearsed at the same time instead of in sequence.

YOU’VE WORKED WITH INTIMAN SEVERAL TIMES IN THE PAST, DOES THE ENERGY IN ROOM FEEL DIFFERENT THIS TIME AROUND?

The energy feels very different to me. Very different. I’m trying to find the vernacular to describe an institution that had been pretty well ensconced in terms of the machinery, the day-to-day machinations of how the company operates, and essentially the factory aspect of it. And in this instance, a lot of it is figuring out things day by day.  I think the perimeters are well established, and nobody does rep like this, so obviously things are going to come up. They are going to require you to look at things from a different perspective that you are not used to. […]

What Have I Done? by Andrew Russell for City Arts Magazine

By |June 27th, 2012|

Andrew Russell for City Arts Magazine, July Issue 2012June 12, 2012: I don’t always love going to the theatre. My mind is too busy, too fast, and unless I’m completely beguiled by the majesty in front of me, I’m wondering how I can escape without causing too much of a stir. But I love to make theatre. To bring to life the unexplained. It’s like being high, like the peak of physical endurance, as if my brain has unraveled, produced fingers and is physically and mentally molding something of significance.

Two and a half years ago I moved to Seattle to be the associate producer at the Intiman Theatre. Within a year the theatre closed and I was scraping by on unemployment.

Then last summer I pitched an idea for bringing the Intiman back to life. I wanted a collective, an army of masters—people I admired, who were angry and hungry for more, the disgruntled, the mischievous, the anxious and the energetic, a motley group of middle children. From them would come the material for an annual summer theatre festival, performed by a repertory company of actors.

The nascent idea that seemed sensible last year is about to stand and march itself right into the theatre. And I’m terrified. […]
