ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN, created, written and directed by Randy Johnson and starring Mary Bridget Davies, who gives an acclaimed performance as Janis Joplin, is a full-on concert experience and musical journey into the life and inspirations of one of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest legends. 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.
ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN also shines a spotlight on the great African-American blues artists who influenced Janis’ musical style and career, including Bessie Smith, Etta James and Aretha Franklin. This new musical event includes a live onstage band and features Joplin hits and classic songs such as “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Ball and Chain” and “Summertime” – creating a compelling portrait of an artist through the words and music of one of America’s greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll icons.

ng distance so we don't have toYou must buy your own ticket, and there aren't many left. We will not all be sitting together, so we'll go to dinner after the show so we can mingle and discuss the show.
Here's a link to tickets, we have a code for a 20% discount - GREEK20 - so ticket prices range from about $64 in the balcony to about $100 on the floor. The show has gotten raves around the country, so I think it's going to be worth it!
https://pasadenaplayhouse.secure.force.com/ticket#sections_a03G[masked]pZIbIAM (The upper balcony back rows are $79, less the 20% discount, but earlier today there was a glitch in their system, you couldn't click on those and add them to your cart, so if you want to purchase those, and it won't let you, just call the box office and purchase them by phone, s.c. is the same)
be sure you get tickets for the 4:00 show, not the 8:00 show
Post your seat number in the comments section after you get it so we can get an idea where everyone is sitting.
***After the play we'll head to "My Vegan" Thai restaurant on Arroyo Parkway - reasonable, free parking, and delicious! I am not a vegan but a friend took me there and I was really impressed - the usual Thai combos plus many more choices. I urge you to join me, especially if you haven't eaten at a vegan restaurant and are skeptical. Here's a link to the Yelp reviews:
