July 27 - August 19, 2012 , Allen Theatre

One Night With Janis Joplin

written and directed by Randy Johnson
musical direction and arrangement by Len Rhodes

Run time: Act 1: 60 minutes Act 2: 60 minutes Intermission: 15 minutes Total: 2 hours, 15 minutes

With a voice like whiskey and a laugh like pure joy, Janis Joplin took the music scene by storm. Simultaneously rough and vulnerable, Joplin was dubbed the Queen of Rock n’ Roll, proving music wasn’t just a man’s world anymore. Packed with classic songs (“Piece of My Heart, “Summertime,” “Mercedes Benz”), the show also shines the spotlight on trailblazers who influenced Janis – like Bessie Smith, Etta James and Aretha Franklin.

Produced in association with Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater in Washington, D.C., with Daniel Chilewich and Todd Gershwin of One Night Productions, the Estate of Janis Joplin & Jeffrey Jampol for JAM, Inc.
