A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN – The Broadway Musical/Concert starring Mary Bridget Davies – is coming to Champaign this October 4th!
Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock & roll. The unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock.
