This is the 3rd or 4th play I've seen at the Macha Theatre and I've enjoyed each one but this was the best! Hawkins did an inspired take on Joplin although I worry what her own voice is like after singing a la Joplin! Hawkins brought out Joplin's tenderness and vulnerablity beautifully. A great evening.
Since Sophie B. Hawkins’ fast rise to stardom in 1992 with the hit song "Damn, I Wish I Was Your Lover," the Grammy nominated artist has been hailed by critics as a modern-day Janis Joplin. The single "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" went to #5 on the Billboard Hot 100 singles' chart in the USA, and was also a top 20 hit in the UK. Her second album, was released in 1994. Produced by Stephen Lipson, it also contained a US Top 10 hit, "As I Lay Me Down," the longest running hit single in AC music for 67 weeks and made world wide platinum status. Three singles from the album made the UK top 40, including "Right Beside You," which peaked at #13. It reached number 2 in the Dutch Top 40.
