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. Now, audiences in Morristown are invited to share an evening with Janis and her musical influences in the hit musical A Night With Janis Joplin.
Janis Joplin had an unmistakable voice, 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,” Janis Joplin performed the music that defined a generation.
