Turnaround Artists Presents: A Night With Janis Joplin


The Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical, A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis Joplin and the genesis of her musical genius through encounters with her seminal musical influences — Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith. After each encounter, we hear an explosive Joplin song incorporating those who inspired her into what became her legendary rock & roll style. 

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.

*Senior, student, and group discounts available. For more information, please call the box office at (209)381-0500.
