"One Night with Janis Joplin"@Pasaden­a Playhouse(dinner@My Vegan Thai after)

PLEASE NOTE:  You must buy your own ticket, see info below.

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.

“Grab your tickets NOW before they sell out… DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!” – CBS

“Exhilarating … Remarkable … A joyful ruckus.” – The Washington Post

“A feel-good, fist-pumping, must-see concert.” – Cleveland Plain Dealer

“A second chance to experience the power of her live performance” – Portland Monthly

RUNNING TIME: 2 hours 30 minutes (includes a 15-minute intermission)

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:

    Gaylene and Michelle - did you get your tickets? Where are your seats?

    Also - please let me know who is interested in getting dinner @ My Vegan Thai restaurant after the show - doesn't have to be a firm commitment to dinner, just wondering who at this point is interested in going there.

    Show starts @ 4:00, let's meet up at 3:30 in the courtyard, especially since some of us haven't met each other yet. I'll hang near the will call table, it's usually in the center of the courtyard, call me if you don't see me. [masked]

    whoops, sorry Gaylene, I hadn't noticed before that you are bringing two guests. In any event, let me know where your seats are - and will you be joining us for dinner afterward?

    Gaylene - did you get your ticket yet? Yesterday there was one left in Row M (seat 4) where Lisa and I are sitting, and I believe Aida is sitting in the first row of the balcony on the end?

      Yes, what a shame we didn't get more of her. We also saw "Room 105" with Sophie B. Hawkins playing Janis and it took me right back to the hippie days.
