Mary Bridget Davies really channeled Janis Joplin: she has her voice and mannerisms honed to perfection. Second act began a bit slow but ended with a bang. Production values were first-rate and high energy.

I never had the opportunity to see the real Janis Joplin but she certainly is reincarnated in Mary Bridget Davies! What a fabulous show. The band was great and Sabrina Elayne Carten had such an awesome voice. This show is a great experience for...continued

If you close your eyes, you could think you were listening to Janis (the actress tries, but really does not look much like her).

Excellent show that thankfully did not focus on her issues, rather focused on how her legend came to be. Also, Arena Stage should be highly commended for their accessible seating system. Far better than the Kennedy Centre!!

"One Night with Janis Joplin" is superb. Ms. Davies' and Ms. Carten's performances were off the charts. The band, the back-up singers, everything and everyone connected to this production deserve a rousing cheer. It is fabulous.

If I could rate One Night With Janis Joplin more than 5 stars I would. (We have not seen My Fair Lady yet.) An incredible evening of music. GO SEE IT!

I thought the show was wonderful. The lead singer sounded so much like Janis it was spooky at times and the lead black singer was magical (I'm sorry, I don't have the program at hand so do not remember their names.) Well worth the money and a...continued

An incredible performance .. Mary Bridget Davies brings Janis alive. With Sabrina Elayne Carten's Etta, Bessie, Nina and Aretha woven throughout, this is a must see show.

Unfortunately the main actress didn't play the night of the coupon, and that's the primary reason I went -- to see her! The alternate actress was OK, but not like Janis Joplin at all. She was pre-scheduled to play on certain nights, so it wasn't...continued

One Night With Janis Joplin was exceptional in all respects...the lead playing Janis Joplin clearly spent some serious time watching film and listening to her music and did a superb job...as one of the lines in the Playbill say, "If you never had...continued
