Welcome to American Night: The Ballad of Juan José, the first production of Yale Repertory Theatre’s 2012–13 season! I am delighted to reintroduce you to playwright Richard Montoya, who made his Yale Rep debut nearly a decade ago alongside Ric Salinas and Herbert Siguenza (with whom he founded the Chicano performance group Culture Clash) in Culture Clash in AmeriCCa. It’s also a great joy to bring back director Shana Cooper, who staged Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet at our theatre in 2011. In this political, timely, and impassioned comedy, Richard, Shana, and a remarkable company of artists make audacious dreams come true on stage, while posing significant questions about the state of our national dream. We are fortunate, indeed, to live in a nation where political debates can play themselves out in our theatres, as well as in the Electoral College: after all, Juan José’s story could be the story of our own ancestors, or of our descendants. Still, all of us who care about freedom of expression must be mindful that artists in China, Belarus, Russia, on the West Bank, and around the world, are regularly silenced, harassed, and imprisoned. In Arizona, the plays of Culture Clash were banned from school systems by a state law passed in 2010. What is the distance between banning books and burning books? The freedom to tell stories that ask complicated questions about the human experience is the foundation of our season ahead—a season filled with distinctive voices, from award-winning playwrights David Adjmi and Sarah Ruhl, to award-winning actors Bill Camp and Paul Giamatti, to award-winning (do you get my drift?) directors Robert Woodruff and Evan Yionoulis. These leading American artists have made their way to Yale because they have courageous questions to raise, and can raise them memorably, all the while turning a compassionate eye toward what is noble—and what is foolish—in the human experience. Should you join us for most or all of this year’s plays—and I hope that is your plan—you’ll find yourself embarked on a rich adventure: anecdotally, the evidence of ten years’ worth of e-mails suggests to me that audience members who get the most out of any individual experience are the ones who see several productions each year. They delight in the widest array of arguments, in the greatest variety of aesthetics, in laughter and tears—and in so doing, they experience the most visceral connections between the plays and their own lives. At Yale Rep, we offer you artists who can create those connections with you: entertaining you, and entertaining conflicting ideas, ideas that are vital in the stories we tell and in the culture at large. We offer you questions that provoke a response, because theatre without provocation is dead on arrival. And increasingly, we offer you the opportunity to join each other, our staff, and the artists, in talking about what you have seen and how it made you think and feel. After many of our performances this season, we will be hosting a series of post-show discussions to make more of your night or afternoon in the theatre. (A schedule of these events is available at yalerep.org.) Thank you for being here with us for this performance. If you enjoy it, we hope that you will spread the good word to your family and friends—in a small city, word of mouth means a lot! And, of course, please feel free to email me directly about this production at email@example.com. Your thoughtful comments are informative and reliable measures of how we’re doing, and I’m grateful! Sincerely, James Bundy, Artistic Director

AMERICAN NIGHT: THE BALLAD OF JUAN JOSÉ IS PERFORMED WITHOUT AN INTERMISSION.
FRONTERAS: CICATRIZES EN LA TIERRA The border is a scar.
Juan José enters the
New Haven Night Richard Montoya’s American Night: The Ballad of Juan José follows the title character’s pioneer path to his American Dream: a new life for himself and his family in the land of alleged equal opportunity. The play also becomes an actual dream, as a nodding Juan José joins the roll of sleepy American idealists, including Mark Twain’s eponymous Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur’s Court and Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz. American Night begins with and ultimately becomes a Mexican corrido, or folk ballad, borne out of medieval Spanish romances that conveyed the adventures of a knight errant. The corrido was an essential tool for disseminating information, tradition, and frequently subversion, especially during the Mexican Revolution: when Villa and Zapata were killed in battle, the people learned about it in a song. Today, the corrido survives in Mexican and, as the cultures increasingly mingle, Mexican-American music, tackling issues from immigration to the Mexican Drug War, often inflected with rap.
How will the dream-corrido of American Night resonate in New Haven? Our national dialogue on immigration focuses understandably on border states in the West and Southwest, where cartel violence, combined with the rise of anti-immigrant fever, have led the playwright to what he calls his “trans-border despair.” But according to the 2010 census, 19 percent of U.S. Hispanics live in the Northeast, and nearly a third of New Haven’s population identifies as Hispanic or Latino. From the moment English Puritans bought the land that now constitutes New Haven from the Quinnipiac Indians in 1638, continual waves of immigration and migration have renewed and redefined this city. As a result, civil rights issues have long shaped life and politics here. Among other landmark events, the oldest American municipal civil rights agency, the New Haven Commission on Equal Opportunities, opened its doors in 1963. But like JJ, newcomers to New Haven and the greater Northeast, including the many immigrants from Latin American countries, have been both welcomed and rebuffed. At his journey’s end, Juan José’s encounter with this country’s past and present has left his armor of hope dented and dinged, but he will still need to wear it. As American Night reminds us, his story is a “ballad without end.” Montoya hopes the immigrant will see that the legal path to citizenship is well worth his time—and that all Americans will find it worth our encouragement.

Richard Montoya, Culture Clash, and the Dreaming of American Night Richard Montoya, an eighth-generation American, was born in San Diego, spent his formative years as an artist in San Francisco, and now calls L.A. home. California is one of the nation’s most diverse states—so it’s perhaps unsurprising that the performance collective he’s been part of there with collaborators Ric Salinas and Herbert Siguenza since 1984 is called Culture Clash. The group grew out of a rich Chicano, or Mexican-American, artistic landscape fertilized by 1960s activism. Fellow Chicano writer-artist Guillermo Gómez-Peña has called the trio “reverse anthropologists and social detectives” who “irritate everyone democratically.” He points out that in the 1990s, armed with their unique brand of satire, Culture Clash invaded many forms of media previously uncharted by Chicanos, from television to opening for the rock band, Rage Against the Machine, to video art in film and television. The last time Montoya took the stage at Yale Rep, in 2003, it was to perform Culture Clash in AmeriCCa, directed by Tony Taccone. The play grew from ten years of conversation
with all kinds of people, everywhere from their native California to New York. Five years later, The Oregon Shakespeare Festival commissioned the group to launch its nine-year American Revolutions cycle of new history plays. The result was American Night, written by Montoya and developed with Culture Clash and director Jo Bonney. Characteristically prescient, the play opened shortly before Arizona SB 1070— the strictest immigration law in the United States—was scheduled to go into effect. The Yale Rep production, directed by Shana Cooper, marks American Night’s East Coast premiere. Montoya and Cooper’s collaboration has brought a number of updates to the script to reflect current events and resonate with a New England audience. As you’ll see, American Night remains insistently timely. The Supreme Court released a split decision on SB 1070 this June, allowing both sides to claim victory. Today, these “United” States are increasingly divided on issues from politics to religion to sexuality. At the close of our first African American president’s first term, on the eve of an ideologically driven election, Montoya does something truly radical. He dreams all Americans, from Sacagawea to the person sitting next to you, onto the stage. For everything that threatens to sunder us as a nation, American Night gives us all something in common—laughter can be a great uniter. —LD

BINGER CENTER FOR NEW THEATRE YALE REPERTORY THEATRE is dedicated to the production of new plays and bold interpretations of classics and has produced well over 100 premieres—including two Pulitzer Prize winners and four other nominated finalists—by emerging and established playwrights. Eleven Yale Rep productions have advanced to Broadway, garnering more than 40 Tony Award nominations and eight Tony Awards. Yale Rep is also the recipient of the Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre. Professional assignments at Yale Repertory Theatre are integral components of the program at Yale School of Drama, the nation’s leading graduate theatre training conservatory. Established in 2008, Yale’s BINGER CENTER FOR NEW THEATRE is an artist-driven initiative that devotes major resources to the commissioning, development, and production of new plays and musicals at Yale Rep and across the country. Among the Center’s programs, a key component is its Production Enhancement Fund, which provides financial support for productions at other theatres of works commissioned by and/or first produced at Yale Rep. The Center also facilitates residencies of playwrights and composers at Yale School of Drama. Permanently endowed by a gift from the Robina Foundation, and supported by additional funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and individual donors, the Center is named in honor of James H. Binger (1916–2004), the noted businessman, theatre impresario, and philanthropist who created the Robina Foundation. To date, the Center has supported the work of more than forty commissioned artists as well as the world premieres and subsequent productions of twelve new American plays and musicals—including David Adjmi’s Marie Antoinette, Dear Elizabeth by Sarah Ruhl, and Bill Camp and Robert Woodruff’s new adaptation of In a Year with 13 Moons by Rainer Werner Fassbinder, all of which will premiere at Yale Rep this season. Dostoevsky’s Notes from Underground, adapted by Bill Camp and Robert Woodruff, was the first commissioned play supported by the Center to receive its world premiere at Yale Rep. In 2010, Notes had its West Coast premiere at La Jolla Playhouse and its New York premiere at Theatre for a New Audience, in association with the Baryshnikov Arts Center. The Center also supported the world premiere co-production of Rinne Groff’s Compulsion at Yale Rep, Berkeley Rep, and The Public Theater; the world premiere of the Yale Rep-commissioned On the Levee by Marcus Gardley, Todd Almond, and Lear deBessonet at Lincoln Center Theater’s LCT3; and the world premiere of Maggie-Kate Coleman and Anna K. Jacobs’s musical POP! at Yale Rep and its May 2012 production at Pittsburgh’s City Theatre. For more information, please visit www.yalerep.org/center.
