Cry, cry baby. A spokesperson for A Night With Janis Joplin has confirmed that the off-Broadway run of the show "will postpone its opening indefinitely due to production issues.” The tuner, which played Broadway’s Lyceum Theatre earlier this season, was set to return to New York at the Gramercy Theatre beginning April 10.
Mary Bridget Davies was scheduled to reprise her role as the titular rock legend.
Written and directed by Randy Johnson, A Night with Janis Joplin celebrated the inspirations of one of rock’s greatest legends and took audiences on a musical journey with Joplin after her unforgettable voice made her a must-see headliner all across the country when she exploded onto the music scene in 1967. The show featured many of Joplin's hit songs, including "Me and Bobby McGee," "Down on Me," "Summertime," "Piece of My Heart," "Ball 'n' Chain," "Maybe," "Kozmic Blues," "Cry Baby" and "Mercedes Benz."
