Loved the singing. Hated the audience. Do you really need to keep your phone on the whole time? Do you really need to take pictures? Do you really need to never shut... continued

This show is not just about Janis but is about her influences too. Amazing blues singing of Etta James, Bessie Smith and Aretha. The lighting is incredible and you can't leave out of there w/o feeling energized.

One Night with Janis Joplin is a full-on concert experience and musical journey into the life and inspirations of one of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest legends. With a voice like whiskey and a laugh like pure joy, Janis Joplin took the music scene by storm. Simultaneously rough and vulnerable, Joplin was dubbed the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll, proving music wasn’t just a man’s world anymore. This new musical event includes a live onstage band and features Joplin hits and classic songs such as “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Ball and Chain” and “Summertime” — creating a compelling portrait of an artist through the words and music of one of America’s greatest rock ‘n’ roll icons. 

Created, written and directed by Randy Johnson and starring Mary Bridget Davies, who gives an acclaimed performance as Janis Joplin.
