One Night with Janis Joplin


Hailed by The Washington Post as “a remarkable, exhilarating portrait of a singer in love with the cleansing embrace of the crowd,” ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN is a rock 'n' roll extravaganza you won’t want to miss!

This full-on concert experience is a musical journey into the life and inspirations of one of rock 'n' roll’s greatest legends. With a voice like whiskey and a laugh like pure joy, Janis Joplin took the music scene by storm. Simultaneously rough and vulnerable, Joplin was dubbed the "Queen of Rock 'n' Roll," proving music wasn’t just a man’s world anymore.

ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN also shines a spotlight on the great African-American blues artists who influenced Janis’s musical style and career, including Bessie Smith, Etta James and Aretha Franklin. This new musical event includes a live onstage band and features Joplin hits and classic songs such as “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Ball and Chain” and “Summertime” – creating a compelling portrait of an artist through the words and music of one of America’s greatest rock 'n' roll icons.

“ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN will rock your world.”
—Los Angeles Times
