A Night With Janis Joplin

Closed February 9, 2014

Mary Bridget Davies, whose positively uncanny vocal impersonation of Joplin keeps the house rocking for much of the show's running time, is joined by a quartet of talented performers.

Why See A Night With Janis Joplin?

A Night With Janis Joplin has already made a name for itself playing various regional venues around the USA, and finally heads to Broadway in Fall this year. Mary Bridget Davies reprises her role as the late singer-songwriter, while Randy Johnson directs.

Janis Joplin's distinctive voice, charisma and public battle with drugs and alcohol made her one of Rock and Roll's most memorable stars, though she was only in the limelight for the final three years of her life.

A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating the inspirations of one of Rock 'n Roll's greatest legends!
