Boston, MA (September 18, 2017) – The Boch Center announced today that the Tony® Award-nominated Broadway musical A Night With Janis Joplin will rock the Boch Center Shubert Theatre stage for three performances January 19-20, 2018. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 22, 2017 at 10:00AM.
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 ‘n’ Roll’s greatest legends. 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.
The New York Times raved that A Night With Janis Joplin “rocks the house” and Variety called it “electrifying.”
A Night With Janis Joplin is created, written and directed by Randy Johnson. Casting will be announced at a later date.
