Here’s some added theatrical suspense: We’ll have to wait till next week to see if Intiman Theatre has made its final curtain call. 

Budget woes caused the Tony-winning theater to close last spring, and for the past two months, the Seattle arts scene headliner has been fundraising to meet a $1 million goal to reopen for summer or shut down for good. Wednesday was the self-imposed deadline, and with $820,000 raised as of Tuesday afternoon, the coffers were nearly full. 

Officials will spend the rest of the week tallying up the pledges and the board will meet Monday to decide the theater’s fate. If the Intiman survives, the summer lineup includes a four–play festival with works from Shakespeare and writer-journalist Dan Savage.
