Critically acclaimed Broadway hit musical A Night With Janis Joplin is coming to The Colosseum stage in Windsor on Saturday, Nov. 4 at 9pm.
Like a comet that burned too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock & roll. Her unmistakable voice was filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort. It was a voice that made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. With a stable of unforgettable songs such as Me and Bobby McGee, Piece of My Heart, Mercedes Benz, Cry Baby and Summertime, Joplin performed the music that defined a generation.
Fueled by these amazing songs, A Night With Janis Joplin is a sensational show featuring a musical journey celebrating Joplin and her biggest musical influences like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith. These are the women who inspired one of rock & roll’s greatest legends.
Created, written and directed by Randy Johnson, A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical that’s staged like a rock concert that you never want to end.
