A Night with Janis Joplin is a new Broadway musical that celebrated its hundredth regular performance at New York’s Lyceum Theatre at the start of 2014. It has already gained significant popularity by earlier playing at several regional venues across the US. The show features Mary Bridget Davies whose astonishingly uncanny vocal impersonations of Joplin rock the house through most of the musical’s running time. Alongside Bridget is a live performing quartet comprising of Nikki Kimbrough, Taprena Michelle Augustine, NaTasha Yvette Williams and De’Adre Aziza. These four portray Joplin’s backup singers known as ‘The Joplinaires’, while also being featured as the iconic women singers that had an impact on Joplin’s music.
Randy Johnson has written as well as directed the musical with Patricia Wilcox as the choreographer. The original music direction and arrangement is done by Len Rhodes. Janis Joplin’s charisma, distinctive voice and her public battle with alcohol and drugs made her one of the most unforgettable stars of the Rock and Roll era. Even though the artist only spent three years of her life in the limelight, she became one of the Rock and Roll’s most celebrated legends. A Night with Janis Joplin tickets brings us one such celebration of Joplin’s many accomplishments and manifold contributions to music. The show features her hit singles like Cry Baby, Me and Bobby McGee, Mercedes Benz, Summertime and Piece of My Heart.
Singer-songwriter Janis Joplin first gained prominence in the late sixties as the lead vocalist of rock band Big Brother and Holding Company. She later pursued singing as a solo artist, performing with backing groups such as Full Tilt Boogie Band, and Kozmic Blues Band. In her four year solo career, she charted five singles including Piece of My Heart, Down on Me, Ball ‘n’ Chain, Work Me, Lord, and Cry Baby. She became popular for energetic live performances for which her following categorized her as ‘electric’. At the peak of her career, she came to be called ‘Queen of Psychedelic Soul’ while being called Pearl by friends.
A Night with Janis Joplin opened in October 2013 in Washington at the Arena Stage after previewing through September with Mary Bridget Davies portraying Joplin. The show opens to Joplin putting on a concert for the audiences, while also sharing stories of her inspirations including Aretha Franklin, Bessie Smith, Nina Simone, Odetta and Etta James.
Davies delivers beautifully throughout the show, not just by looking like Joplin, but also by singing like her. Her incredible stage presence and performance has taken the country by surprise and she has already been listed among various end-of-the-year best lists for her portrayal of the Rock and Roll queen. The four women, who share the stage with Davies deliver jaw-dropping performances singing in close harmony just like the members of girl band, Chantels.
Some of the most exciting moments are those of call-and-response scores in which they sing interactively with Davies for Joplin’s signature songs. Nikki Kimbrough’s sassy and sexy Etta James sets Davies to scream her Tell Mama. Allison Blackwell gives a gripping performance while portraying Aretha Franklin. Her spine-chilling rendition of Summertime pushes Davies to all new levels sonic exploration of Joplin’s own version. De’Adre Aziza’s soulful execution of Odetta’s hit Down on Me brings forth a beautiful response from Joplin.
At times, the suggested inspiration takes more subtle forms such as in Nobody Can Tell When You Are Down and Out, sung by the Bessie Smith of Taprena Michelle. The show offers some really gorgeous period outfits. In fact, costume designer Amy Clark’s decorated outfit of a 1920 fancy-dress brings more dignity to the character of Bessie. All the period costumes are coordinated quite meticulously with the individual performers, including the simple but progressively stylish types that are so characteristic of Joplin’s style. As a concert as well as a musical, A Night with Janis Joplin provides an honest picture of Janis and the hedonist Sixties era the artist personified. A Night with Janis Joplin tickets are simply a must-have.
