A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN

Created, Written & Directed by Randy Johnson

Featuring Mary Bridget Davies as Janis [Evening Performances]

Fri-Sun, Oct 12-14, 2018

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock & 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 your city, now you're invited to share an evening with the woman and her influences in the musical, 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 and directed by 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 & roll's greatest legends.

Casting for Janis:  The role of Janis Joplin will be performed by Mary Bridget Davies for evening performances, and by Paige McNamara on matinees.  (Subject to change.)
