Yale Rep in tune with Warhol

'POP!' to premiere in the fall

Andy Warhol gets the tuner treatment when “POP!” receives its world preem at New Haven’s Yale Repertory Theater in the fall.

The work, which runs Nov. 27-Dec. 19, takes a pop-art, fictionalized look at the events leading up to the shooting of Warhol, with the denizens of the artist’s New York Factory portrayed as characters from a detective pic.

Mark Brokaw, who helmed “Cry-Baby” on the Rialto, will stage the musical, which has a book and lyrics by Maggie-Kate Coleman (“Stepmommy Dearest”) and music by Anna K. Jacobs (“Stella and the Moon Man”).

Tuner was recently developed during the Yale Institute for Music Theater, which launched last month under Brokaw’s direction.

“POP!” completes the Rep’s 2009-10 lineup, which opens with Henrik Ibsen’s “The Master Builder” in September.
