This play is billed as a musical event which it is and once I got past the idea that there was no story I was able to enjoy it more. Whatever narrative is there is told... continued

Great performance. Even though we got the understudy, she did a brilliant job of portraying Janis and singing her songs. The place was rocking! And the seats from Goldstar were great.

Loved it! It was like a biographical concert. Mary Bridget Davies has a dynamic voice and channeled Joplin. And the other singers and the band were awesome! It was a great experience.

Not worth the money. As someone who has been listening to rock and soul music since the days when (the actual) Janis Joplin was in her prime, I was impressed with MBD's... continued

All the rave reviews you've read are true: this is a great show. Even people who weren't fans of Janis will like this one.

What an afternoon treat. The understudy takes over on matinees and does a superb job. The entire cast is fantastic. For two and a half hours you are at a Joplin concert.

This show was so much more than I expected. The performers were beyond fabulous and the way the story was set-up, it was just like being at a Janis Joplin concert. I'm so glad that I will be able to say that I saw it BEFORE it went to Broadway.

If you enjoy Janis Joplin music and her many influences, it is a get away from reality 2hours and 20 minutes.

Alison Cusano played Janis Joplin on Saturday when we saw the play. She was terrific. I kept thinking, is this Janis Joplin or is this another singer?
Sabrina Carten was... continued
