After having a successful run on Broadway at the Lyceum Theatre from September 2013 until just this past February; “A Night With Janis Joplin” will be re-opening and taking up residency at The Gramercy Theatre with shows beginning on April 10th.
The show features Mary Bridget Davies as Janis Joplin while Kacee Clanton is the Janis Joplin alternate. Its produced by Daniel Chilewich, Todd Gershwin and Michael Cohl with choreography by Patricia Wilcox. The story has been written and directed by Randy Johnson and brings the audience into the music of the late great performer. Musically this has been very well received and according to research it receives numerous standing ovations nightly. Through “A Night With Janis Joplin” the music and her story continue to live on for today’s interested fan.
Here is a video to the opening night that was on YouTube. It gives you a glimpse into what is in store for you as a member of the audience. It sure looks like fun to me so I will be making a plan to see it during the course of the posted three months worth of dates. Will you be checking this show out at all? Does it interest you?
A link to the cast album can be found below in case you are interested and I’ve embedded one for some “Essential” Joplin tunes as well.
Oh and before I forget. Its rather obvious that with three months booked solid for this residency that the NYC Metal and Rock Fans will lose this as a venue to attend for their shows for the time being. With that being the case I say don’t worry because I will be keeping everyone up to date with the listings of importance via our handy, dandy PiercingMetal Events Calendar so do please bookmark it and share with friends.
