A Night With Janis Joplin

January 8 : 8:00 pm

$36 – $66

Event Navigation

A Night With Janis Joplin, 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. The show features a remarkable cast performing such unforgettable songs as “Me and Bobby McGee”, “Piece of My Heart”, “Mercedes Benz”, “Cry Baby” and “Summertime”.
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.

New York Times – A Night With Janis Joplin “rocks the house”

Variety – “electrifying.”

“A Night With Janis Joplin will rock your world!” – Los Angeles Times

The Washington Post  –  “Exhilarating … Remarkable … A joyful ruckus.”
