The Pasadena Playhouse (Sheldon Epps, Artistic Director and Elizabeth Doran Executive Director), in association with Todd Gershwin and Daniel Chilewich of One Night Productions, LLC, the Estate of Janis Joplin and Jeff Jampol of JAM, Inc. announced today that single tickets for ONE NIGHT WITH Janis Joplin will go on sale tomorrow, January 19, in celebration of Janis Joplin's birthday. Hailed by critics in Cleveland as a "feel-good, fist-pumping, must-see" show, ONE NIGHT WITH Janis Joplin has left audiences clamoring for tickets in Portland, Cleveland and Washington D.C. Now coming to The Pasadena Playhouse in celebration of the Los Angeles area's great rock 'n' roll history, performances will run from March 15 through April 11, with a press opening night on March 17, 2013, at 5:00 p.m.
ONE NIGHT WITH Janis Joplin, created, written and directed by Randy Johnson and starring Mary Bridget Davies, who gives an acclaimed performance as Janis Joplin, is a full-on concert experience and musical journey into the life and inspirations of one of rock 'n' roll's greatest legends. With a voice like whiskey and a laugh like pure joy, Janis Joplin took the music scene by storm. Simultaneously rough and vulnerable, Joplin was dubbed the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll, proving music wasn't just a man's world anymore. ONE NIGHT WITH Janis Joplin also shines a spotlight on the great African-American blues artists who influenced Janis' musical style and career, including Bessie Smith, Etta James and Aretha Franklin. This new musical event includes a live onstage band and features Joplin hits and classic songs such as "Piece of My Heart," "Mercedes Benz," "Me and Bobby McGee," "Ball and Chain" and "Summertime" - creating a compelling portrait of an artist through the words and music of one of America's greatest Rock 'n' Roll icons.
ONE NIGHT WITH Janis Joplin was produced this past summer by One Night Productions in partnership with the Cleveland Play House and the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. (September 28 - November 4, 2012), following a previous opening at Portland Center Stage in 2011. This hit musical has garnered multiple nominations for the 2012 BroadwayWorld.com Awards and recently won the 2012 Cleveland Critics Circle Awards for Best Regional Touring Production and Best Actress in a Musical (Mary Bridget Davies).
