One Night With Janis Joplin
1 ticket

How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
"Oh Lord, please send me a Mercedes Benz." I had to move my car during the intermission (the parking ticket machines weren't taking any of my credit cards) and so was a few minutes late for the 2nd half of the show, when "Mercedes Benz" was scheduled. At the closing bows, it hadn't been performed and I thought I'd missed it -- when the star came back and closed the show with the audience on our feet singing and rocking with her. This show was GREAT! The band, the back-up and feature singer(s), and of course, Mary Bridget Davies as Janis -- all riveting. Davies looks enough like Janis, screams in the right places as Janis did -- all convincing enough to make us all so sad that she left us too soon. Caution -- park safely as DC does ticket with a vengeance!
