Monday, May 20, 2019

The Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical A Night With Janis Joplin is set to rock EKU Center on October 10 at 7:30 PM.

A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis Joplin and her biggest musical influences – trailblazers like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, all of whom inspired Joplin to become one of Rock 'n' Roll's greatest legends. Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll. Her unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made Joplin a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Audiences will enjoy Joplin's favorites, including "Piece of My Heart," "Cry Baby," "Me and Bobby McGee," and many others.

Mary Bridget Davies will star in A Night With Janis Joplin at EKU Center. She received a Tony Award nomination for Best Lead Actress in a Musical for her performance as Janis in the Broadway production. Davies has also toured in Europe with Janis Joplin's original band, Big Brother and the Holding Company.
