Share an evening with the woman and her musical influences in the hit musical 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. The unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock.
Fueled by such unforgettable songs as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Cry Baby” and “Summertime,” this sensational show is a musical journey celebrating Joplin 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.
The New York Times raved that A Night With Janis Joplin “rocks the house” and Variety called it “electrifying.”
“A Night With Janis Joplin will rock your world!” said the Los Angeles Times
The Washington Post proclaimed it “Exhilarating … Remarkable … A joyful ruckus.”
Celebrate the musical journey and iconic influences of this legendary icon, played by professional singer and national stage actor Kelly McIntyre. Her portrayal of Joplin is so authentic that it moved the Albany Times Union to claim, “Kelly McIntyre tears a hole in her soul playing the title character.”
