by BWW News Desk - Sep 8, 2012

Sophie B. Hawkins to Lead Janis Joplin Musical at Macha Theatre, 10/4-21
by BWW News Desk - Sep 6, 2012

Acclaimed filmmaker Gigi Gaston's ROOM 105 - a new musical show starring Grammy-nominated Sophie B. Hawkins - is a thoughtful and entertaining tribute to legendary soul singer Janis Joplin. The show is a humorous, engaging, bittersweet, intimate and honest musical confessional. Janis brings the audience into her world and her life, and teases viewers about aspects of modern day pop culture, of which she is privy. A modern-day retrospective on Joplin's turbulent life, telling a story that reveals the iconic singer's thoughts on love, sex, fame and belonging. The show will premiere on October 4, the very night of the anniversary of Janis Joplin's death, at the Macha Theatre-- blocks away from Barney's Beanery where she had her last drink before her untimely death, joining the infamous 27 club.
