Experience the story of Janis Joplin and see Tawny Dolley portray Etta James in this Tony-nominated musical that The New York Times says “ROCKS THE HOUSE!”
Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became an iconic rock ‘n’ roll queen. Her unmistakable voice, laced with raw emotion and Southern Comfort, made her the must-see “rock mama” from Monterey to Woodstock. Fueled by a live band and psychedelic performances of her unforgettable songs like “Piece of my Heart,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” and “Cry Baby,” A Night with Janis Joplin is a powerful dramatic celebration of Janis, and her inspirations—including Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith.
