A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN

Wednesday, February 7 – 8:00p &
Thursday, February 8 – 8:00p


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. Now, San Diego is invited to share an evening with the woman and her musical influences in the hit musical A Night With Janis Joplin.

Fueled by such unforgettable songs as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,”  “Mercedes Benz,” “Cry Baby” and “Summertime,” this sensational show is a musical journey celebrating Joplin and her biggest musical influences—icons like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, who inspired one of rock & roll’s greatest legends.

Features a live on-stage band.

A Night With Janis Joplin will rock your world!” said the Los Angeles Times

“LUSTY, POWERFUL, AND UNDENIABLY CROWD-PLEASING. THE AUDIENCE ROSE TO THEIR FEET!”  – Huffington Post

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

Warning:  This production uses special effects including strobe lights, hazers and moving lights.

CAST:

Kelly McIntyre – Janis Joplin

Kelly McIntyre Bio:
McIntyre is thrilled to be coming back to A Night With Janis Joplin! After joining the show for the First National Tour in 2016, McIntyre went on to headline and perform in five more productions of Janis at Capital Reparatory Theatre, The Barter Theatre, American Conservatory Theatre, Laguna Playhouse, and McCarter Theatre. Other NYC credits include For Tonight (Goodspeed Opera House), Into The Sun (New York Musical Theatre Festival), Days of Rage (New York Theatre Barn), and Ruth Maier (New York Theatre Barn). McIntyre has sung in concerts and readings all over NYC in venues such as 54 Below, Joe’s Pub, The Cutting Room, and Don’t Tell Mama. Love to MD&S, My Fadeout, and Jeremy for all they’ve done! www.kellymcintyre.com

Review of Kelly McIntyre’s performance as Janis in previous production: 

But, of course, ultimately the success of “A Night With Janis Joplin” depends solely (and soully) on the performance of whoever is bold enough to take on the daunting task of the title role. McIntyre was superb, embracing both Joplin’s brash and bawdy side, as well as her vulnerability. She nailed Joplin’s cadence in speech and song with deadly accuracy. And she literally threw herself into the songs, especially during the Act Two highlights, “Cry Baby” and “Ball and Chain.” – Nippertown – http://www.nippertown.com/2016/07/14/theater-review-a-night-with-janis-joplin-therep/
