Like a comet burning far too bright to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became an iconic rock ‘n’ roll queen. Her unmistakable voice, laced with raw emotion and Southern Comfort, made her the must-see “rock mama” from Monterey to Woodstock. Fueled by a live band and psychedelic performances of her unforgettable songs “Piece of my Heart,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” and “Cry Baby,” A Night with Janis Joplin is a powerful celebration of Janis, and her musical inspirations—including Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith. Break out those bell bottoms and put on your dancing shoes—this electric musical event will bring down the house!

“Rocks the house!” – The New York Times

“Wild and joyously raucous.” – The Hollywood Reporter
