Mary Bridget Davies stars as Janis Joplin in this musical celebrating the rock legend's life.
Comments from published critics
‘‘Mary Bridget Davies, whose positively uncanny vocal impersonation of Joplin keeps the house rocking for much of the show’s running time, is joined by a quartet of talented performers playing famous singers who influenced her style, from Bessie Smith to Odetta to Nina Simone to Etta James.’’
‘‘Joplin blazes through 'Piece of My Heart,' 'Summertime,' 'Me and Bobby McGee,' 'Mercedes Benz' and more classics. She’s supported by a kickass band and surrounded by psychedelic projections and rock-concert lights.’’
‘‘It’s not only an amazing perf, it’s also a generous one. It had better be, because the four women sharing the stage with Davies are delivering death-defying performances.’’
