A NOTE FROM THE ARTISTIC DIRECTOR Welcome to Yale Rep—where spring is in full bloom! I am delighted you are here with us for the world premiere of Elevada by Sheila Callaghan. This new love story, commissioned by Yale Rep, is a witty and wise revelation of contemporary society, particularly of the technologies and feelings that can keep us from truly connecting with others. So if you’re going to take a selfie, please do it before the show (#elevada @yalerep, please!), then turn off your phone, and let yourself be swept away by the imagination of the playwright, director Jackson Gay, and their remarkable company of collaborators. Whether you are a first-time attendee at Yale Rep, or you are a frequent member of our audience, thank you for making the 2014–15 season such a rewarding experience. I invite you to join us again in the fall: our recently announced 2015–16 season includes three world premieres and two classics brought to life by some of the most daring and honored artists working in the American theatre today. We begin again in September with Indecent, a deeply moving new play with music, created by our Pulitzer Prize-winning Playwright-in-Residence Paula Vogel and director Rebecca Taichman, and continue with Jiehae Park’s blisteringly funny peerless, directed by Margot Bordelon, and Jen Silverman’s The Moors, an outrageous contemporary riff on 19th-century gothic romances, directed by Jackson Gay. Next spring, OBIE Award-winning Resident Director Evan Yionoulis will stage Shakespeare’s romantic adventure Cymbeline, and I will direct a new production of Samuel Beckett’s masterpiece, Happy Days, featuring two-time Oscar winner Dianne Wiest. These premieres and revitalized classics reflect our highest aspirations for artistry—they will be filled with sensory delights, astonishing ideas, revelatory emotions, and a courageous commitment to theatrical adventure in communion with our audience. We can just barely wait to share them with you! Thank you again for joining us today. I look forward to hearing your thoughts about Elevada or any of your Yale Rep experiences (my email address is james.bundy@yale.edu), as well as to seeing you again next season! Sincerely,

James Bundy Artistic Director

You can sail a ship by yourself Take a nap or nip by yourself You can get into debt on your own There are lots of things that you can do alone But it takes two to tango...

1

1 start

—AL HOFFMAN AND DICK MANNING,1952 start

Rudolph Valentino did it in gaucho pants in The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and women across the country fainted. Jack Lemmon did it in lipstick and heels in Some Like It Hot, and Joe E. Brown forgave him everything—well, nobody’s perfect. The Tango has always had an extraordinary power to seduce. Although no history of the dance is definitive, the legend of the tango has it rising from the cobblestoned backstreets, smoky taverns, and dens of dubious virtue in Buenos Aires in the late 19th century. It next traversed the Atlantic, perhaps, as part of the repertoire of a dancing master who set up shop in Paris, where it claimed kin with that city’s infamous Apache dance and became à la mode, before finally finding its way to immortality in early film.

In Argentina the dance was originally done by compadritos, young toughs who lived and worked on the waterfront, cultivating an air of danger. When the scions of wellheeled society came slumming, looking for nightlife with a bit of edge, they discovered the tango. In order to keep their contact with the grime and dust of the dingy dance parlors to a minimum, it is said they created “the elevada,” a means of stepping high to minimize contact with the ground. In Sheila Callaghan’s play, the heroine, her sister, her love and his roommate find out that it’s all well and good to step high, to avoid messy interaction, and go walking on air; you’ll keep your hem clean and your shoes fresh. But it can be just as important to risk ruining your best pair of dancing slippers, to caress the floor, and to stand on your own two feet. —CATHERINE SHEEHY, PRODUCTION DRAMATURG


Making Connections K R O J

In Elevada, playwright Sheila Callaghan imagines the intersection of moods, modes, and methodologies that are often considered mutually exclusive, if not downright antipodean. She manages to chart the unlikely places where such antithetical notions as hope and despair, love and loathing, certainty and doubt, gravitas and loft—against all odds—converge. Callaghan’s idiosyncratic system map guides all of Elevada’s characters, and armed with it, they navigate the service changes, track work, and rush-hour crowding of modern social interaction. Ramona, Khalil, June, and Owen may feel lost from time to time, but they all come to realize that it’s only at a junction that you can change the direction of your life. —CAS

“Hit Me” + “Stand Pat” It’s “fight or flight!” Owen says to Khalil. Do you take what’s behind door number two or stick with what you’ve won? Do you take a card when you’ve got 17 showing, or do you stay? What’s the risk/ reward analysis? Elevada makes the case for leaping, while refusing to assert that the world promises a landing spot any more comfortable outside the frying pan.

Lyricism + Stark Reality Among Sheila Callaghan’s many gifts is the capacity to create characters that might remind you of friends or family, to craft conversations that you might overhear on the subway, and then to deploy them in situations that, though you could never imagine them, you believe them completely. This may be heartwarming, soul-crushing, or cringe-inducing. Her litany has a most impressive breadth. She doesn’t shy away from anything, because she is a poet, who, to be sure, believes with the 2nd-century BCE Roman playwright, Terence, “I am a human being. Nothing that is human is alien to me.”

Also in her arsenal, however, is the capacity for the sudden flight of fancy. The flight may be linguistic, dramaturgical, spectacular, or situational. But all at once, a play in whose plot we are confident and with whose characters we are comfortable, will take off, transporting us to undiscovered countries— some of them beautiful, some of them hideous or horrifying. You’ll know it when you see it. And when you have seen it, you will know just how exhilarating such a juxtaposition of the real and the fantastical can be.

Meme, My Selfie,

and Thousands of Eyes

Now that “friend” has become an omnipresent verb and you don’t need to start a cult to have followers, now that announcements of presidential aspirations and condolences for unimaginable tragedy are conveyed in 140 characters or less, how do we know others—and how are we known? These are central questions in Elevada. So it seemed only appropriate to let Sheila Callaghan introduce herself to Yale Rep audiences via that most modern means of autobiography, the “selfie.” To let us get a little closer to her, Sheila sent a years’ worth of images taken at arm’s length. Here are just a few with some hashtags and tweets we’ve added.
