A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN

Presented by Cincinnati Arts Association at Aronoff Center for the Arts, Cincinnati OH

Apr 13 2016
A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock & roll.

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock & roll. The unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Now, audiences are invited to share an evening with the woman and her influences in the new Broadway musical, A Night With Janis Joplin. Fueled by such unforgettable songs as ‘Me and Bobby McGee’, ‘Piece of My Heart’, ‘Mercedes Benz’, ‘Cry Baby’, and ‘Summertime’, a remarkable cast, and a Tony Award-nominated, breakout performance by Mary Bridget Davies, A Night With Janis Joplin, written and directed by Randy Johnson, is a musical journey celebrating Janis and her biggest musical influences — icons like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith — who inspired one of rock & roll’s greatest legends.
