A Night With Janis Joplin
October 25 & 26
868 Fourth Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101
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, San Diego is invited to share an evening with the woman and her musical influences in the hit musical A Night With Janis Joplin. New York Times raved that A Night With Janis Joplin “rocks the house” and Variety called it “electrifying.”
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.
