The play itself was not badly written, however (and that's a huge however!) the production was so bad. I love theatre, I love Janis Joplin, and I love music...so this should have been a slam-dunk, but it was not. The production was badly...continued

The music was great but the letters in between were kind of boring. Didn't learn as much of Janis as we should have. More of a musical tribute than anything else. I think you have to already be a big fan of Janis Joplin to really like this...continued

What a waste of my time. I think you have to be a real Janis Joplin fan to enjoy this one. Couldn't quite keep up with the story.

The "singing Janis" was wonderful - she looked and sounded like the real thing. The play was weak - but it was the music we came for. The "talking Janis" was too thin and her voice and accent were Holly Hunter, not Janis Joplin. The contrast was,...continued

Show had a substitute lead singer who wasn't a believable "Janis." But, overall, a good show. Also, I recommend that you AVOID Wilshire Theatre Beverly Hills balcony seating if air and sound quality matters to you. I'd rather pay more and get...continued

It was almost like hearing Janis Joplin singing in person. What a voice and passion. And the play was well acted by both ladies. I would love to see it again, and again and again!!!!

Could not believe how great this was! I was transported back to the late 60's, and the music was amazing!!

Marvelous play. I closed my eyes and truly thought it was Janis singing. The band was awesome. I recommend this play highly to anyone; Janis fan or not.

Also, the Wilshire Theatre is like stepping back in time; seach a treasure.

The Hippie Chic was so cool! The show was well put together. The actors/singers/musicians were amazing. Balcony seats were great for the Music. I would not have paid the price the Theatre had wanted. If you missed this, you missed a GoldStarEvent!

This was one of the most amazing things I have ever seen performed onstage anywhere! The girl who sang the Janis parts was phenomenal. It was like watching the leged. I loved it!

Show was ok. Seats were really bad - upper nosebleeds...may have dampened the energy a bit for us.

The girl that sang the songs really nailed the Janis Joplin voice, mannerisms and even was built like her.
The girl that did the narrative part of the show was very hard to understand. It wasn't a really big problem, because the music was really...continued

A little kareoke but it was nice to hear her music live and the singer sounded very close to the original. The slide show behind the band was very unimaginative and dull. They had a singing Janice and a talking Janice but they both talked at the...continued

Wow! Great performances by everyone, great music. Only one problem: I really didn't like having two Janis'. It wasn't confusing, but it was annoying.
