  • A Night with Janis Joplin

  • On Broadway

A Night with Janis Joplin comes to Broadway after numerous successful regional productions. Janis Joplin reigned as the Queen of Rock n’ Roll for three short, turbulent years and helped defined the ‘60s, create the Woodstock generation, and redefine the role of women in rock. She was controversial, out there, and a trip-and-a-half. Joplin’s influence was far-reaching and her hits, including “Me and Bobby McGee,” are timeless rock and roll masterpieces.  A Night with Janis Joplin takes us on a musical journey that is powerful, celebratory and moving.

In A Night with Janis Joplin, you’ll feel the prodigious emotions, see the enigmatic character and hear the unique vocal interpretations that made Joplin so famous.

Tough, vulnerable, honest and frightened, Joplin was a complex mixture of elements that made her uniquely interesting.
