"Remarkable! An exhilarating portrait of romance, a singer in love with the cleansing embrace of the crowd."

Why See A Night with Janis Joplin?

Spend an evening with the Queen of Rock and Roll

A Night With Janis Joplin has already made a name for itself playing Broadway, and you're invited to share an evening with the woman and her influences in the musical.

Helmed by the critically acclaimed Broadway director Randy Johnson, the production is a musical journey celebrating the inspirations and music of the tragic and immensely talented Joplin. Her distinctive voice, charisma and public battle with drugs and alcohol made her one of Rock and Roll's most memorable stars, though she was only in the limelight for the final three years of her life.

What is A Night With Janis Joplin About?

The show takes the form of a Joplin concert at the peak of her fame, transporting the audience back in time with an authentic stage design of retro proportions. Throughout the course of the evening, Joplin punctuates her rousing performances of classics like 'Mercedes Benz' and 'Piece of My Heart' with biographical asides, introducing her influences. These inspiring females include Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Nina Simone and more!
