ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Dell'Arte International's Mary Jane - A Musical Potumentary is the film adaptation of Dell’Arte’s box office record-breaking stage production, Mary Jane: The Musical, which shines a light on the rapidly evolving cannabis cultivation culture that has driven the underground economy in Humboldt County, California for decades. Emmy nominated film director, John Howarth, blends documentary footage into the musical to create a rollicking and provocative “potumentary.”

Devised by Dell’Arte Artistic Director, Michael Fields, Mary Jane: The Musical explores the social, economic, and political issues surrounding cannabis cultivation and the uncertainty of legalization in Humboldt County. In 2011, Fields put out a call to local musicians to write about Humboldt cannabis culture. As a result, twelve local songwriters contributed sixteen songs to the production. The songs vary in musical styles and approaches from Bollywood to reggae to salsa. Lila Nelson’s “Grow Inside” is a humorous story of unrequited love between an indoor plant and outdoor plant. Joani Rose’s “My Son” is a lament on children raised in a black market family business. Scott Menzies’ songs take a hard look at the psychic and environmental impact of the local multi-million dollar industry and the threat of corporate interests. For Menzies’ song, “Corporate Raiders,” veteran actor, Edward “Ed” Asner was cast in a cameo performance as a menacing big agriculture Chairman of the Board.

Reflecting the experience of the North Coast community is in the Blue Lake theatre company’s mission. Fields explains, “Dell’Arte has been making theatre about the people and issues of this place since in 1974. And now, where we live and its cannabis culture are the focus of a national debate. Making a film version of Mary Jane brings this debate to a wider audience through music, comedy, and interviews.”

Dell’Arte International, located in Blue Lake, CA, focuses on “theatre of place,” with a scope that is both local and global. Dell’Arte is a world-traveled theatre company, yet the organization maintains a commitment to bring accessible theatre to Humboldt County. Dell’Arte is also the premiere U.S. training center for the actor-creator, offering the continent’s first MFA in Ensemble-Based Physical Theatre, and proudly produces the popular annual Mad River Festival.
