A Night with Janis Joplin

The Tony® Award-nominated Broadway musical A Night With Janis Joplin rocks San Jose Center for the Performing Arts on October 16.


A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis Joplin and her biggest musical influences – trailblazers like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, all of whom inspired Joplin to become one of Rock ‘n’ Roll’s greatest legends. Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Her unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made Joplin a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Audiences will enjoy Joplin’s favorites, including “Piece of My Heart,” “Cry Baby,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” and many others.


The New York Times raved that A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN “rocks the house” and Variety called it “electrifying.” New York 1 cheered, “This will rock your socks off!”


A Night With Janis Joplin is Created, Written and Directed by Randy Johnson. The show features Mary Bridget Davies, Amma Osei, Ashley Tamar Davis, Tawny Dolley, and Jennifer Leigh Warren.
