A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN Postpones Off-Broadway Run Indefinitely
BroadwayWorld has confirmed that A Night With Janis Joplin, which was set to open at New York City's Gramercy Theatre (127 E 23rd St. / 23rd & Lexington Ave) tomorrow, April 10th, has been postponed. A show spokesperson released the following statement: "A Night With Janis Joplin at Gramercy Theater will postpone its opening indefinitely due to production issues. Refunds will be available for all ticket holders at point of purchase. Further information will be released when available."
The off Broadway engagement would have arrived at Gramercy Theatre following an engagement at Broadway's Lyceum Theater where it was hailed by critics and had audiences leaping to their feet and dancing in the aisles.
Fueled by such unforgettable songs as "Me and Bobby McGee," "Piece of My Heart," "Mercedes Benz," "Cry Baby" and "Summertime," a remarkable cast and a breakout performance by Mary Bridget Davies, A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis 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. Written and directed by Randy Johnson, A Night With Janis Joplin is produced by Michael Cohl, Todd Gershwin and Daniel Chilewich, in association with The Estate of Janis Joplin and Jeffrey Jampol for JAM, Inc.
