The Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical,  A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis Joplin and her biggest musical influences-trailblazers like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, all of whom inspired Joplin to become one of Rock n Rolls greatest legends.

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock n Roll. Her unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made Joplin a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Audiences will enjoy Joplin’s favorites, including Piece of My Heart, Cry Baby, Me and Bobby McGee, and many others.
