“Guttural and raspy yet dynamic and versatile, Joplin’s voice is a unique force to capture, but Davies does so uncannily.”—Mackenzie Manley, CityBeat

“It’s not only an amazing performance, it’s also a generous one. It had better be, because the four women sharing the stage with Davies are delivering death-defying performances.”—Marilyn Stasio, Variety

Enjoy the Tony Award® nominated Broadway musical sensation celebrating Janis Joplin and her biggest musical influences—icons including Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone, and Bessie Smith, who inspired one of rock & roll’s greatest legends. Joplin’s unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made her a headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Featuring a remarkable cast, and fueled by such unforgettable songs as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Cry Baby” and “Summertime,” this show is a must-see for Joplin fans.
