A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN

January 14, 2018 @ 2:00 am - 7:30 pm   |  
Parker Playhouse
| $33 - $63

Created, Written and Directed by
Randy Johnson

The music that changed history. The events that made the woman. The woman who made the music.

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” and a remarkable cast, this musical journey celebrates Janis and her biggest musical influences—icons like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith.

A Night with Janis Joplin is presented in further association with The Estate of Janis Joplin and Jeffrey Jampol of JAM, Inc.

Created, Written and Directed by
Randy Johnson
