Description

Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock-and-roll. The unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock.


From Broadway to the cinema screen, you’re invited to share an evening with the woman and her musical influences in the Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical sensation, “A Night with Janis Joplin”. 


Fueled by such unforgettable songs as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Cry Baby” and “Summertime,” a remarkable cast and breakout performances, “A Night with Janis Joplin”, written by Randy Johnson and directed by Emmy Award-winner David Horn  and Randy Johnson, is a musical journey celebrating Janis and her biggest musical influences — icons like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, who inspired one of rock-n-roll’s greatest legends.


“A Night with Janis Joplin” stars Mary Bridget Davies in the title role of Janis Joplin, Tawney Dolley as Etta James, Ashley Tamar Davis as Aretha Franklin, Aurianna Angelique as Bessie Smith, and Jennifer Leigh Warren as a blues singer.
