After a highly successful run last year, Arena Stage is bringing back its hit show One Night With Janis Joplin. Part-concert, part-theatrical event, this blues-rock show captures the singer's life and legacy in all its live intensity. Mary Bridget Davies stars as the rock legend in a performance that has audiences dancing in the aisles and critics raving. Featuring powerful musical numbers including "Piece of My Heart, "Summertime" and "Mercedes Benz," as well as one song Joplin never formally recorded, the show boasts a full band and cast who bring Joplin's story to the stage, including Sabrina Elayne Carten, playing Bessie Smith, Etta James, Aretha Franklin and Nina Simone.

From the director of Arena Stage's 2005 summer revival of Crowns and creator of the international sensation Three Mo' Tenors comes a new musical celebration with class, sass and feminine style. This new version - created specifically for Arena Stage - features three musical stars singing some of the most inspiring and challenging music ever written for the female voice. Supported by six musicians, 3 Mo' Divas!, a 2004 Los Angeles Times' Critics Choice, spans seven musical forms and features 400 years of music in a single evening - everything a music lover could want, from Puccini to Cole Porter, Gershwin to Cab Calloway, Ellington to The Supremes.
About the Ticket Supplier: Arena Stage
Arena Stage today stands as a flagship American theater. Arena Stage was one of the first not-for-profit theaters in the United States, as well as a pioneer of the regional theater movement. It was the first regional theater to transfer a production to Broadway, the first invited by the U.S. State Department to tour behind the Iron Curtain, and the first to receive a Tony Award. Taking a leadership role in extending theater's horizons, Arena Stage has implemented groundbreaking policies and programs, promoting diversity in all aspects of theater, from theatergoing to production.
The Arena Stage legacy of world-class productions includes vast epics, charged dramas, rousing musicals, and probing profiles. From the monumental to the developmental, Arena Stage has helped build the canon of American theater. While they produce American classics, Arena Stage premieres new American plays and supported works in progress. They've nurtured artistic growth and engaged the community, broadening and intensifying the theatrical experience for one and all. And yet, in spite of it all, in their second half-century they see themselves as more fresh, restless and dynamic than ever.
