Perhaps no band better bridged the chasm between sleazy, Sunset Strip glam-metal and arty alternative rock better than Jane’s Addiction, the group that helped lay the groundwork for what frontman Perry Farrell described as “the Alternative Nation.

“Poldek” Socha is a meatyfaced, crude man who cusses like a sailor as he navigates the sewers of Lvov, a Polish city under German occupation during World War II.

Directed by Sandy Ernst, the Milwaukee Rep’s production of the musical casts Kelley Faulkner in the lead role of Cline, who stood above many singers of her time with the rich depth of her voice.

Wohlrabe is every bit the youth she’s playing here. As a member of the Milwaukee Rep’s Acting Intern Ensemble last year, she made a notable performance in the company’s inaugural “Rep Lab.” In that show, she managed to create a dynamic stage presence in Neil LaBute’s The Furies.

In its early stages, vibrators were used to treat women (and some men) for “hysteria” and induce what is known today as an orgasm. So the good doctor ends up with happy and relaxed wives—all, that is, except for his own wife, Catherine, who hears the procedure and its effects in the next room.

General Director William Florescu took a commendable risk in staging this relatively unfamiliar modern American opera. I can rave about Erhard Rom’s corrugated set with its feminine mountains and stiff reeds, the church descending like a guillotine and its crucifix a giant, tipping absence.
