ONE NIGHT ONLY!
After a stunning San Francisco premiere in 2017, the 'wild and joyously racous' Tony-Nominated Broadway hit is back in the city for one night only this fall! A musical journey celebrating the Queen of Rock and Roll, A Night with Janis Joplin takes you along for the ride as we discover the genesis of her unique and unforgettable sound through her encounters with seminal performers including Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and the late great Aretha Franklin.
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. Alongside Janis (played by the incredible Tony-nominated Mary Bridget Davis), each gets a chance to wow the crowd with their own powerful performance.
