by Shari Barrett - Sep 16, 2018

Like a comet that burns far too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll. Davies carries on and mimics the unmistakable raspy voice filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort to a tee, her stage presence making it easy to see what made Joplin a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock and beyond even to this day, so many years after her too-soon passing at the age of 27. After listening to Davies' sharing of Janis' life, it is easy to think the rock legend died from not only from drugs and alcohol but from her lonely co-dependent longing for a man to share her life, equaling her love of the spotlight and adoration received from a live audience, which she could never find. Davies' renditions of Joplin favorites, including ‚ÄúSummertime,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúPiece of My Heart,‚ÄĚ ‚ÄúCry Baby,‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúMe and Bobby McGee‚ÄĚ among others, ignite the stage and audiences alike with a passion no man in her life could ever match.

BWW Feature:  National Tours Leave Their Mark (Literally) at Durham Performing Arts C Photo BWW Feature: National Tours Leave Their Mark (Literally) at Durham Performing Arts Center
by Lauren Van Hemert - Jun 1, 2018

Backstage the walls at the Durham Performing Arts Center (DPAC) boast a who's who of A-list stars. That's because every act, from Robin Williams to Rob Lowe, who has performed at DPAC from the time the theater opened its doors in 2008, has signed the hallowed halls. And the celebrities aren't the only ones who have left their mark. Every national touring production since Rent opened at DPAC in January 2009 has 'tagged' the walls with a painted logo. In 2011, the national touring production of Shrek painted the first 'mimic' logo, which has become a DPAC wall tag tradition ever since. The mimic wall tags appropriate logos from other shows. For example, the School of Rock wall tag is reminiscent of the poster from The Sound of Music and The Sound of Music company painted a mimic logo reminiscent of The Book of Mormon. At DPAC, several floors backstage are covered with wall tags and signatures, but according to Jacob Holland, DPAC's Membership Manager, there are still empty walls to be painted. Holland says the public can see the wall tags during one of DPAC's monthly behind-the-scenes tours.

The unmistakable voice, filled with raw emotion and tinged with more than a touch of Southern Comfort made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock Her unique sound, however, was originally created as a result of her love for some of the greatest African-American singers of all time. Now, theatergoers can share an evening with the Queen of Rock and Roll and her musical influences in A Night with Janis Joplin
