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, Mankato 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.
New York Times raved that A Night With Janis Joplin “rocks the house” and Variety called it “electrifying.”
“A Night With Janis Joplin will rock your world!” said the Los Angeles Times
The Washington Post proclaimed it “Exhilarating … Remarkable … A joyful ruckus.
