A Night with Janis Joplin
Although she only lived to be 27 years old and released only three albums, Janis Joplin changed the face of rock and roll by belting out her signature blues-heavy brand of rock. The exclusive “Forever 27 Club” only features deceased iconic artists such as Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix, and as part of this unfortunate club, Joplin is easily one of rock’s most important female figures. Written and directed by Randy Johnson, A Night with Janis Joplin is a Tony Award-winning musical that not only celebrates Joplin’s original songs like “Mercedes Benz,” but also songs like “Piece of my Heart, ” one of the many blues songs that Joplin popularized during the ‘60s. The songs of her influences like Aretha Franklin and Etta James will also be celebrated.
