A Night with Janis Joplin at the Garde Arts Theater New London
September 20, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm
A Night with Janis Joplin will perform on September 20th from 8 pm to 11 pm at the Garde Arts Theater in New London. The Tony Nominated Broadway Musical celebrates Janis 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.
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. The New York Times raved that A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN “rocks the house” and Variety called it “electrifying.” New York 1 cheered, “This will rock your socks off!”
