Photo Coverage: Mary Bridget Davies & A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN Cast Take First Broadway Bow!

A NIGHT WITH Janis Joplin began previews on September 20 and opened last night, October 10 at the Lyceum Theatre (149 W. 45th Street). BroadwayWorld was there for the big event and you can check out photos from the curtain call below!

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin (Mary Bridget Davies) exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll. The unmistakable voice filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Janis and her biggest musical influences - trailblazers like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, who inspired one of Rock 'n' Roll's greatest legends.

A NIGHT WITH Janis Joplin arrives in New York following acclaimed engagements at Portland Center Stage, Cleveland Play House, Arena Stage at the Mead Center for American Theater, Pasadena Playhouse, and Milwaukee Repertory Theater.
