Janis Joplin Musical: 'A Night With Janis Joplin' Heads To Broadway

Producers said Wednesday that the musical "A Night With Janis Joplin" starring Mary Bridget Davies as the iconic singer will start previews at the Lyceum Theatre on Sept. 20.

Davies, who was raised in Cleveland, first won the role in 2005 after beating 150 actresses. She has appeared in the musical revue "It Ain't Nothin' But the Blues" and another Joplin musical, "Love, Janis." She has toured with Joplin's band, Big Brother & the Holding Company and has released the album "Wanna Feel Somethin.'"

If you go to Vegas you can see all manner of imitations of the great icons.

B'way is no longer the creative force in theatre and music that it once was- harldy.

A friend of mine thought the Janis Joplin musical (in San José, same cast) was great.

I thought that the Carol King musical, Beautiful, at the same time in San Francisco, was an old fashioned snooze, slightly pleasant for an afternoon, but wouldn't bother if I had known.
