Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin (Mary Bridget Davies) exploded onto the music scene in 1967 for three incredible years, reigning as the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll. The unmistakable voice filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. A Night with Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating the inspirations of one of Rock 'n' Roll's greatest legends.

    Little Girl Blue Howls Again, but Talks Sensibly, Too

    Charles Isherwood

    October 10, 2013: The party onstage at the Lyceum Theater, where “A Night With Janis Joplin” opened on Thursday night, turns out to be more crowded than you might expect. This latest in Broadway’s endless stream of boomer-bait musical tributes isn’t just a matter of a big-voiced singer, her backup band and a bottle of Southern Comfort.

    Davies a Knockout in A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN

    Michael Dale

    October 10, 2013: The one hundred and ten year history of Broadway's Lyceum Theatre has seen nine musicals, a couple of plays with music and a few concert evenings grace its stage. But I doubt if the walls of the classic Beaux-Arts showplace have ever felt any vibrations like the powerful full-throated wails of soulful orgasmic psychodelia emoted from Mary Bridget Davies in the title role of A Night With Janis Joplin. Certainly not when Maurice chevalier or Michael Feinstein played the house.

    A Night With Janis Joplin: Theater Review

    David Rooney

    October 10, 2013: NEW YORK – Mary Bridget Davies screeches up a storm as Janis Joplin. When she throws her formidable lungpower and raspy emotional rawness into “Piece of My Heart,” you could swear the tragic supernova known to her friends as “Pearl” had been reborn. But if you’re after a contextualized bio-musical to provide insight into rock’s first undisputed queen, writer-director Randy Johnson’s sanitized concert tribute, A Night With Janis Joplin, is not the place to look.

    Broadway Review: ‘A Night With Janis Joplin’

    Marilyn Stasio

    October 10, 2013: As a musical biography, “A Night With Janis Joplin” is pretty much a bust. The book by Randy Johnson, who also helmed, skims lightly over the singer’s Texas childhood and her tenure with Big Brother and the Holding Company, with nary a word about her personal life or the booze and drugs that cut it short. But as a concert in which those great ladies of song who were Joplin’s musical inspiration join her on stage, the show is something else — a celebration of the blues and those beautiful bruises they leave on the singer’s soul.
