Yale Opens Season with American Night


Yale Rep opens the season with American Night: The Ballad of Juan Jose, written by Richard Montoya, developed by Culture Clash and Jo Bonney, and directed by Shana Cooper. Sept. 21- Oct.  13 at the University Theatre, 222 York St.

American Night: The Ballad of Juan Jose features choreography by Ken Roht, scenic design by Kristen Robinson, costume design by Martin Schnellinger, lighting design by Masha Tsimring, sound design by Palmer Hefferan, projection design by Paul Lieber, dramaturgy by Lauren Dubowski, vocal and dialect coaching by Beth McGuire, singing coaching by Vicki Shaghoian, and stage management by James Mountcastle.

The cast is Austin Durant, Deidrie Henry, Felicity Jones, James Hiroyuki Liao, Gregory Linington, René Millán, Richard Montoya, Richard Ruiz and Nicole Shalhoub.

What's it about?

As Juan José (René Millán) feverishly studies for his citizenship exam, his obsession to pass takes him on a fantastical odyssey through US history guided by a handful of unsung citizens who made courageous choices in some of the country’s toughest times. It is a provocative, irreverent, and hilarious mix of past and present, stereotype and truth.

Tickets range from $20-96, and are available online at www.yalerep.org, by phone at (203) 432-1234, and in person at the Yale Rep Box Office (1120 Chapel Street, at York Street). Student, senior, and group rates are also available.
