Why See A Night With Janis Joplin?

The San Francisco premiere production

Direct from its successful Broadway run that closed in 2016, as well as a successful national tour, this A.C.T premiere of the definitive Janis Joplin tribute musical A Night With Janis Joplin has already made a name for itself playing Broadway and regional theatres around the U.S. With the role originated by Tony nominee Mary Bridget Davies, this new production will feature the A.C.T's very own talented cast, which is yet to be announced. Close your eyes and you could be in the swinging sixties...

The show takes the form of a Joplin concert at the peak of her fame, transporting the audience back in time with an authentic stage design of retro proportions. Throughout the course of the evening, Joplin punctuates her rousing performances of classics like 'Mercedes Benz' and 'Piece of My Heart' with biographical asides, introducing her influences. These inspiring females include the members of The Chantels and Aretha Franklin, and each gets a chance to wow the crowd with their own powerful performance.
