Theatre Intime was founded in 1920 by a group of Princeton undergraduates; in 1922 it took over the Hamilton Murray Theater as its stage. It has presented the American premieres of several plays by prominent creators, including Jean Cocteau's The Typewriter and W. H. Auden's Age of Anxiety. Members of the troupe have included Jimmy Stewart, Joshua Logan, Bretaigne Windust, William Hootkins, Roger Berlind, Mark Feuerstein, Richard Greenberg and Wentworth Miller.
In the late 1920s, the group spawned a summer theater project, the University Players, whose early members included Stewart, Logan, and Henry Fonda. Later, summer projects were titled 'Summer Intime,' and the current PST, or Princeton Summer Theater, an annual independent troupe widely popular with members of the area community.
