Broadway's A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN to Make Overture Center Debut This Month

The Tony Award-nominated Broadway musical A Night With Janis Joplin makes its Madison debut at Overture Center Sun., Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. with Kelly McIntyre as Joplin.

Tickets start at $25 (10+ tickets purchased together receive group discount) are available in person at the Overture Center Ticket Office (201 State Street), online at or by phone at 608.258.4141.

A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical journey celebrating Joplin and her biggest musical influences - trailblazers like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith, all of whom inspired Joplin to become one of Rock 'n' Roll's greatest legends. "The Joplinaires," as her influencers are called in the show, will be played by Aurianna Angelique, Ashley Tamar Davis, Tawny Dolley and Jennifer Leigh Warren.

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll. Her unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort, made Joplin a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. Audiences will enjoy Joplin's favorites, including "Piece of My Heart," "Cry Baby," "Me and Bobby McGee," and many others.

A Night With Janis Joplin is part of the Overture Presents Music Series and was created, written and directed by Randy Johnson.
