A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN to Rock the Palace for One Night Only November 7
Concert-Style Broadway Musical A Night with Janis Joplin to Rock the Palace for One Night Only November 7
The Tony® Award-nominated Broadway musical A Night with Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis Joplin and her biggest musical influences—trailblazers like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith—all of whom inspired Joplin to become one of rock’s greatest legends. In 1967, Joplin exploded onto the music scene with her unmistakable voice filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, and almost overnight, became the queen of rock ‘n’ roll. Audiences will enjoy Joplin favorites, including “Piece of My Heart,” “Cry Baby,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” and many others. A Night with Janis Joplin is a musical that’s staged like a rock concert you never want to end.
CAPA presents A Night with Janis Joplin at the Palace Theatre (34 W. Broad St.) on Tuesday, November 7, at 8 pm. Tickets are $30-$60 at the CAPA Ticket Center (39 E. State St.), all Ticketmaster outlets, and www.ticketmaster.com. To purchase tickets by phone, please call (614) 469-0939 or (800) 745-3000.
