WELCOME to the world premiere of POP! by Maggie-Kate Coleman

and Anna K. Jacobs, two immensely gifted theatre artists whom I first met last summer at the inaugural Yale Institute for Music Theatre. Now entering its second year, YIMT, established by Yale School of Drama and Yale School of Music, distinguishes itself in the field by developing new work by composers and playwrights who have received an undergraduate or graduate degree within the last five years. (Current Yale students are also eligible to apply.) The public reading that capped off the Institute’s two-week workshop of POP! was a distinct pleasure: seven actors singing behind music stands transported me to an oft-documented and much-dissected time and place, but with a unique point of view: via a musical inside Andy Warhol’s head. It is difficult to overstate the influence that Warhol has had on American popular culture since his splashy emergence on the contemporary art scene in the 1960s. Extraordinarily talented and obsessed with celebrity, he was—and continues to be—as famous for being famous as for his art. In the days before the internet, camera phones, reality television, and the 24-hour news cycle, his shooting in 1968 made headlines around the world. It’s in the moment after that attack—with Warhol suspended between life and death—that POP! takes place.

To borrow a phrase from Rodgers and Hammerstein, the corner of Chapel and York has been alive with the sound of music in the last weeks and months as Maggie-Kate and Anna’s songs have spilled over from the rehearsal rooms into our hallways and offices. Fortunately, you’ll hear them today sung by an incredibly talented cast of musical theatre performers—not by me. POP! also marks the return to Yale Rep of Mark Brokaw, a graduate of Yale School of Drama and the Artistic Director of the Yale Institute for Music Theatre, as well as one of the nation’s most acclaimed directors of new work. POP! is the first original book musical to premiere at Yale Rep in more than a decade and an example of our expanding commitment to new work by emerging writers. This production is supported by the Yale Center for New Theatre, which includes among its wide-ranging activities the commissioning and development of new plays and musicals at Yale Rep. Currently, the Yale Center for New Theatre supports over a dozen commissioned projects, including On the Levee, by Marcus Gardley, Lear deBessonet, and Todd Almond: this show will make its premiere at Lincoln Center Theater in 2010. Established with the generous support of the Robina Foundation, the Center, together with your adventurous support as members of our audience, makes Yale one of the most fertile environments for writers in the English-speaking theatre. With so many projects in the pipeline, you’re certain to hear fresh and invigorating theatrical voices here for years to come. But this moment belongs to Maggie-Kate and Anna, Mark, and the entire team on stage and off who have brought this bold, complicated, and ambiguous new musical to life. Thank you for being here to celebrate their work with us. And please tell your friends, family, and colleagues—as at the Factory, our doors are open to newcomers! Enjoy the show—I look forward to hearing what you think and feel about it! Sincerely,

When Andy Warhol came to New York in 1949, Abstract Expressionism was all the rage—“rage” being the operative word. Its American proponents were edgy, brooding, disaffected, intellectual Jungians: men who drank, fought, fornicated, and painted (though not always in that order). Their work contained echoes of the suffering and uncertainty of the Great Depression and the horror and uncertainty of WWII. The terrible power of the atomic bomb only reinforced their angst. In POP!, Andy Warhol’s ambivalent attitude toward these artists and their art is played out in the über-macho pastiche of three towering figures of the movement: Robert Motherwell, Franz Kline, and Jackson Pollock.

Not entirely reactionary or wholly oppositional, Pop Art’s relationship to Abstract Expressionism is like a kid brother who has had a sunnier childhood. Pop grew up a product of the prosperous 1950s and its exuberant consumerism. With a temperament bright, bouncy, charming, Pop was—at least on the surface—inclusive. When the average housewife went to her pantry, or her daughter went to the movies, or her son went to the comic book store, or her husband opened the evening paper, they were confronted with the same images as the savvy patrons of the most exclusive New York galleries. Even Pop’s darker gestures—like Warhol’s Death and Disaster series—were frequently bathed in swathes of Howard Johnson orange, Juicy Fruit yellow, and Comet green. Everyday objects put the snap and crackle in Pop.

While the Abstract Expressionists rejected the gaudy exterior of modern life as so much vinyl siding, Pop threw its arms open to kitsch and commercialism—sometimes ironically but often simply celebrating the optimism inherent in marketing creature comforts in a culture of conspicuous consumption. And if that stuck a finger in the eye of that dowager high culture, even better. Pop was about repurposing, recycling, repackaging, rejoicing—and reserving the right to take it all back. —CATHERINE SHEEHY, PRODUCTION DRAMATURG


The Story of a ‘ Consomméd’ Artist, Condensed The Andy Warhol of POP! is, of course, a character. But then the actual (it’s all but impossible to say “real”) Andy Warhol was himself a construct. Just how this bewigged tabulation of tics and poses, at the head of an army of speed freaks, sad-glam transvestites, and lost socialites, let slip the dogs of culture war is the ride you’re on tonight. Born in an impoverished Slovak enclave of Pittsburgh in 1928, Andrew Warhola was a sickly boy, who spent most of his time lashed to his mother’s apron strings. He strove to please her, and she fed him Campbell’s® Soup and rewarded his pretty drawings with Hershey’s® chocolate bars. Brand names became symbols of financial security. Later there were Brillo® boxes and Coke® bottles, movie stars and cartoon characters, one man’s kitsch another’s talisman of success. At the Carnegie Institute of Technology, Andrew Warhola started creating in earnest. He experimented with the blottedline technique, a method of transferring an image from one surface to another by placing a fresh sheet of paper on the still-wet original. It was the “copy” that then became the work of art, and the artist receded. Thus Andy began his ceaseless expedition to the background—a voyage he undertook as a sure-fire way of getting attention.

After graduation, he headed for New York and early, if not entirely fulfilling, success as a commercial artist. Whether it was a moniker he adopted in preemptive self-defense or one thrust upon him, Warhol became known as “Andy Paperbag” in those early days for the assiduously careless way he carried his portfolio around town in a humble sack. Paper bags remained his preferred conveyance for luxury indulgences and flea market finds for his entire life. While art critics were deciding whether Pop was a breath of fresh air or a blight on the cultural landscape, Andy was already evolving. In 1963 he opened his famous studio, the Factory. It was the perfect name, combining the working-class, lunch-pail whiff of his Pittsburgh past with the industrial, Capitalist quality of his evolving theory of art. It also evoked his tireless work ethic. Here virtually everything from cows to car accidents, from Elvis to electric chairs, was subjected to the patented Warhol silk-screen treatment. Still Andy was discontent with Pop as merely a way of art; he sought to make it a way of life. He announced he would renounce painting,


and he threw all his energies into filmmaking and promotion. He continued to cultivate his image, in part, through a willful withholding of the self that upped his mystery ante. Though the doors to the Factory were wide open, and a fascinating

NOW AND THEN SOMEONE WOULD ACCUSE ME OF BEING EVIL, OF LETTING PEOPLE DESTROY THEMSELVES WHILE I JUST WATCHED, JUST SO I COULD FILM THEM AND TAPE-RECORD THEM. BUT I DON’T THINK OF MYSELF AS BEING EVIL, JUST REALISTIC. parade of personalities poured in, there was no personal ingress where Andy was concerned. Whether his affectless monosyllabism was a pose or a defense mechanism, it was an effective one. It is ironic, but somehow poetic, that a man who sought all his life to become impenetrable—socially, critically, (and some said) even sexually—should have everything changed by a bullet. On June 3, 1968, the irresistible force of Valerie Solanas’s psychosis came to loggerheads with the immovable object of Andy Warhol’s keenly cultivated passivity. Solanas, an imbalanced writer-cumprostitute who had appeared in two of

the films, but who had been, at best, a member of the Warhol periphery, came to the Union Square Factory. She demanded the return of a script she’d asked Andy to read. When she was told it was lost, she lost it. Valerie Solanas took a gun out of a paper bag and shot Andy Warhol. Andy didn’t die from his wounds, but he didn’t exactly recover. His life, his health, and his peace of mind were forever altered. He went on to become a kind of self-parody in the late 1970s with the kind of overexposure reserved today for the reality-show fame-eaters he helped to create. When Andy Warhol died in 1987 after routine gall bladder surgery, his family took him home to Pittsburgh to bury him beside his mama. Few celebrities attended the burial. After all, the glitterati don’t herd west of the Hudson River and east of the Rockies. However, they poured by the thousands into the memorial service held later at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York. From a cold mountaintop in Pennsylvania, Andy Warhol was the star of one of the most exclusive events of the New York season, and he wasn’t even there. He would have loved that. —CS





INSIDE THE FACTORY A luminous constellation of personalities shimmered throughout the 1960s at Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory. The in-crowd at his creative incubator and social headquarters was an eclectic mix of outsiders—all young, buoyant, and sexy. Overseeing operations was the dropout poet, Gerard Malanga. Though perhaps less well known than other Warhol “Superstars,” he popped up everywhere, dancing, bullwhip in hand. The experimental rock band The Velvet Underground and Nico provided the soundtrack to Andy’s multimedia show, the Exploding Plastic Inevitable. Other factory folk like Hearst heiress Brigid Berlin and “Pope” Ondine with his circle of amphetamine-fueled “A-heads” generally partied until they crashed on the shabby red couch, salvaged from the curb by studio caretaker Billy Name. Dramatic genderbenders Candy Darling and Jackie Curtis were on-hand to supply gossip overheard the night before at Max’s Kansas City. Joe Dallesandro and Paul America, the coy hustlers with Adonis physiques, threw piercing glances at no one in particular. A succession of It-Girls elbowed their way in front of Warhol’s Bolex camera: the bombshell Baby Jane Holzer; the trust fund-guzzling, renegade socialite Edie Sedgwick; and the other glittering party-girls, like Ingrid Superstar, Ultra Violet, and Viva.

Even bona fide celebrities, from Judy Garland to the Rolling Stones, were drawn in by the magnetism of Andy’s cosmos. Andy collected these personalities as avidly as he appropriated famous images for his art. His Factory was a force field to which wouldbe somebodies of all stripes gravitated, drawn by Andy’s offer of fifteen minutes. But were they just hurtling toward a black hole? Some Warhol Superstars left in rancor. Some died young, collapsing in on themselves under the astronomical weight of drugs and longing. The Factory was a permissive place: Andy’s vague “wow” encouraged his satellites to dazzle, to pop, to be more fully themselves—even if that meant ruin. Perhaps Andy Warhol was, after all, less a source of light or a vacuum of darkness than a mere reflector, casting back and intensifying their glow. —RYAN DAVIS, ASSISTANT DRAMATURG

Compare your answers on the previous page to the key below, and your role in Andy’s life—and your fate—will be revealed!





FIFTEEN MINUTES… Bathtubs with an ocean view, kites flying in a cloudless sky—as pastoral ads for prescription patent medicines clog our airwaves with their cheerful voiceover warnings about side effects that range from the funny to the fatal, there’s one powerful drug that has escaped FDA scrutiny: Fame. Andy Warhol didn’t create the notion of fame. It goes well back, before Beowulf, before Ajax. Who knows? Maybe those French cave paintings were done by Lascaux’ best publicity firm to trumpet their #1 guy with a bow.




Probably the most influential fixture at Warhol’s Factory. A jack-of-all-trades, for $1.25/ hour you’d take on any project—however ingenious or impractical. You live.

Andy’s Superstar sidekick. You’re a mesmerizing presence on celluloid and the ornament of every Factory blowout. You overdose in 1971.

The ultra-glamorous transsexual and Warhol muse, channeling the Technicolor womanhood of Lana Turner and Kim Novak. You die of leukemia at age 30.




But in the 20th century, Andy put the “hound” in publicity hound. He was ravenous in his pursuit of notice; he engendered that same hunger in those of his inner circle and eventually, with his tantalizing promise of a free fifteen-minute first taste, in an entire culture. Before the web, before YouTube, before viral video even existed (note the language of disease), Andy Warhol’s promotion of the “must-haveness” of fame as a cure for what (you don’t know) ails you put today’s battalions of Pfizer, Merck, and Glaxo-Smith-Kline reps to shame. Sure, he himself had oodles of true talent, and not just for self-promotion, but he often pushed Fame for serious off-label abuse. If there were a warning pamphlet included with this omnipresent drug to alert its users to the likely side effects, from the merely annoying and inconvenient to the positively civilizationthreatening, it might look something like this. —CS




The Factory’s resident campy speed freak and social coordinator, tearing apart Andy’s unwanted guests with a lacerating wit. You die of liver disease at age 52.

The eccentric radical feminist, never quite at home in the Factory. You spend some time in prison, drift in and out of mental institutions, and die of emphysema in a welfare motel.

The striking face, slinky body, and sparkling intellect, named for the paper towel brand. You ditch the Factory to marry, have two children, and write a tell-all memoir and a number of other books. —RD





& NOTHING BUT THE HOLE...TRUTH All his life Andy Warhol thought about nothing, talked about nothing. After his brush with death he wouldn’t shut up about nothing. But for him “nothing” was a multivalent concept, as full as it was empty, as pregnant as it was barren. “Nothing” was a big, strong paradox that could do the work of ten punier abstract nouns. It had “love” and “life” both licked from the get-go. He frequently turned to “nothing” in his writings and interviews to say…well…everything he felt.
