If you liked LOVE, JANIS, you'll love the Texas Premiere of the brand new musical ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN, created, written and directed by Randy Johnson - 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.

RUNNING TIME: 2 hours 15 minutes (includes a 15-minute intermission). This production of ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN contains mature language and special effects including haze, fog, and strobe lights.
