"There's just a vitality to the Montana character that I find incredibly compelling" Greg Johnson, Artistic Director, Montana Rep Theatre from 1990-2017.

His unexpected passing in New Orleans has stunned the Montana creative community.

His passion for the Montana work ethic, unwavering devotion to theatre in all its forms and launchpad for so many creative careers in the arts across the country is legend.

*excerpt from The Missoulian upon his retirement*

"Johnson, who was born in New York and grew up in the New Jersey suburbs, worked in the theater industry in New York City for 15 years. In 1990, he moved to Montana to take over as artistic director of the Rep.

While he came out West with an open mind and no expectations, he imagined that he would stay perhaps for five years.

"I fell in love with Missoula that first year. The people, the mountains, the ease with which people smile at you and say hello. To a city kid, that was pretty seductive," he said.

Johnson helped build the Rep's tours, first focusing on the West and then going national in "Mockingbird" in 1997. With a well-received production, it became the company's signature play and set the model for its countrywide tours."
