One Night With Janis Joplin
will rock your world." —Los Angeles Times
“One of the most amazing and emotional experiences offered on any Los Angeles stage so far this year.” -Backstage
“Exhilarating … remarkable … A joyful ruckus.”__ -The Washington Post__
“Davies’ voice is so raw, so powerful, and so eerily similar to the late singer.” -Washingtonian
“Davies’ interpretation is dead-on … [Sabrina Elayne Carten’s] powerhouse voice is equally impressive.”__ -Theatermania__
Mary Bridget Davies is “a force of nature … [she] rides her voice like a bronco-buster hanging onto a frenzied stallion … [Sabrina Elayne] Carten, one of the few women in the world who can do Aretha Franklin, and make it sound genuine.” —DC Theatre Scene
“Come to this show … it’ll knock your socks off.”– ShowBiz Radio
