A Night with Janis Joplin is a smokin', rockin' evening at the theatre. What makes this production so wonderful is the bigger-than-life presence of Mary Bridget Davies as Joplin. Her performance is stunning in its exactitude. She performs some of Joplin’s greatest tunes, including “Tell Mama,” “My Baby,” “Summertime,” “Down on Me,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” and “Ball and Chain.” At the end of the latter, the audience was on their feet screaming their approval before the song was even finished.
