A MESSAGE FROM T HE A RT IST IC DIR ECTOR Hello! Having lived in Milwaukee for three years now, I have quickly learned that this city certainly knows how to make the most of its all too short summers. In addition to the numerous great outdoor and lakefront activities, Milwaukee’s celebrated music scene also hosts Summerfest, the world’s largest music festival presenting local, national, and internationally recognized music superstars for two gloriously packed weeks in June and July. So what better way to really get you in the mood for this great local event, than by sharing with you a rock performance extraordinaire that has been taking the country by storm recently? One Night With Janis Joplin celebrates the music of legendary rock icon and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist, Janis Joplin, right here on The Rep’s Quadracci Powerhouse stage. Last summer, I attended the opening night of this really fun production’s tryout at Cleveland Play House. I had a great time watching a crossgenerational audience – many of whom were reliving seminal moments of their distant youth – by rocking out to classics such as “Piece of My Heart,” “Cry Baby,” “Mercedes Benz,” and many, many more. I was delighted when Milwaukee Rep was asked by producers Todd Gershwin and Daniel Chilewich to be part of a consortium of three nationally recognized producing theaters to co-produce the next round of this entertaining show’s life. For three years now, I have very much wanted to extend the Quadracci Powerhouse producing season beyond late April. We are delighted to finally have the capability to do that now, at the end of our current season, by sharing in the creation of this production, written and directed by Randy Johnson, along with Pasadena Playhouse and Arena Stage. This summer also brings another exciting change to The Rep. I am thrilled to welcome Chad Bauman as our incoming Managing Director, who will join me as a co-leader of our company. Chad is a rising star in the theater world, and joins us after six seasons with Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater in Washington, D.C. I very much look forward to working with him on our recently announced 2013/14 Season. We will continue to deliver brave, challenging, entertaining and vital works to our three stages, as well as at the beautiful Pabst Theater. Now let your hair down, shake those feathers and feel free to get up and dance, sing along and enjoy One Night With Janis Joplin! Cheers, Mark Clements Artistic Director Janis Joplin – 4


A N O T E F R O M T H E P L AY W R I G H T A N D D I R E C T O R In these days where fame is instant and true musicianship rare, the word “artist” is an often-misused statement. As we are held hostage to a manufactured pop culture on a daily basis, I feel we must constantly revisit our history and explore the authentic forces that have shaped the landscape of our lives. One of these authentic forces is Janis Joplin. There never has been and never will be another Janis Joplin. Her fame was earned – her following grew as she grew – people were drawn to her and she was drawn to them. Janis Joplin was a true artist without contrivance or artifice. She was an extraordinary woman. People like to say “ahead of her time.” I happen to believe she was right on time. After immersing myself in the culture of Janis Joplin with Michael Joplin, Laura Joplin and Janis herself, the one prevailing message that kept coming back to me was the commonality of the paths and influences that guide and shape all of us and our spirit every day. I am constantly astonished and inspired by the depth of the wisdom she imparted in her music, her interviews, her writings and her art. All of us are influenced and shaped by artists, poets, musicians, thinkers and ordinary people. That’s what creates new thought every day. Janis provoked a lot of thought by simply being herself. At 3 a.m., one week after I had spent time with the Joplin family, I knew that this play would simply be One Night With Janis Joplin. It’s a night where Janis (one more time) could share her music, truths, influences, art, philosophy and spirit. Janis lives on as most great artists eventually do, forever in the conscious collective. This isn’t just Janis’ story: it’s all of our stories in one way or another. We all touch and inform each other as we travel this life. I trust that you, the audience, will take away with you a piece of Janis’ heart. The world is a better place because she was here for a moment. Randy Johnson Playwright/Director
