A Night with Janis Joplin (London, Sadler's Wells Peacock Theatre, 2024) | Playbill

A Night with Janis Joplin


SYNOPSIS: 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. Packed with classic songs (“Piece of My Heart, “Summertime,” “Mercedes Benz”), the show also shines the spotlight on trailblazers who influenced Janis – like Bessie Smith, Etta James and Aretha Franklin.

Directed by Randy Johnson
Choreographed by Patricia Wilcox
