Janis/Janis Alternate - a force of nature, a genuine spirit, ''a white chick singin’ the blues,'' an original. The rock and roll legend. An old soul. Great, authentic rock & roll/blues voice with incredible range and chords of steel. Must be a natural actress, highly charismatic with a superb sense of humor and irony and something else – genuine star quality. This actress should be able to channel the spirit of this rock legend, without impersonation.

Joplinaires - Females, age 25-29, African American. Portray Janis’ musical icons over the years including: Etta James, Bessie Smith, Nina Simone, Odetta, Big Mama Thornton, and Aretha Franklin.
