A Night with Janis Joplin

“A Night With Janis Joplin will rock your world!”–Los Angeles Times.

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock & roll. The unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Now, Portland is invited to share an evening with the woman and her musical influences in the hit musical A Night With Janis Joplin.

Fueled by such unforgettable songs as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,”  “Mercedes Benz,” “Cry Baby” and “Summertime,” this sensational show is a musical journey celebrating Joplin and her biggest musical influences—icons like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, who inspired one of rock & roll’s greatest legends.

The New York Times raved that A Night With Janis Joplin “rocks the house” and Variety called it “electrifying.”
The Washington Post proclaimed it "Exhilarating ... Remarkable ... A joyful ruckus."
