Like a comet that burned too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock & roll. Now, audiences at Warner Theatre are invited to share an evening with Janis and her musical influences in the hit musical A Night With Janis Joplin when it comes to Warner on September 24th. Janis Joplin had an unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort. It was a voice that made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. With a stable of unforgettable songs such as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” Cry Baby” and “Summertime,” Janis Joplin performed the music that defined a generation. Fueled by these amazing songs, A Night With Janis Joplin is a sensational show featuring a musical journey celebrating Joplin and her biggest musical influences like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith. These are the women who inspired one of rock & roll’s greatest legends. The New York Times raved that A Night With Janis Joplin “rocks the house” and Daily Variety called the show “electrifying.” A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical that’s staged like a rock concert that you never want to end, and we're proud to bring this unforgettable production to Warner Theatre. A Night With Janis Joplin is Created, Written and Directed by Randy Johnson.
