Happy New Year as we open with an unforgettable theatrical performance of A Night with Janis Joplin on Jan. 18, 2018. 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, Williamsport, PA is invited to share an evening with the memories and her musical influences in the hit musical A Night with Janis Joplin. The New York Times raved that A Night with Janis Joplin “rocks the house” and Variety called it “electrifying.”
