"Critics and Audiences are raving about Randy Johnson's 
 
"A Night With Janis Joplin"
 
 
LIZ SMITH

 “Rocks the house with a fervor that is riveting!" - The New York Times 


 “ A Night with Janis Joplin doesn't just take another little piece of our hearts in fact, it steals the whole thing."

  Harpers Bazaar


 " Johnson creates a high-caliber spectacle around the compelling story of a uniquely talented singer-songwriter who embodied her generation's passionate attitudes."   

Wall Street Journal

“A Night With Janis Joplin” is a triumph! 
Neither venue nor attendees may ever be the same. In a cosmic collusion of persona and perception, this electrifying concert musical resurrects the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll with the sort of seismically sensational results normally encountered at stadiums and pop festivals.
portraitist tour de force

"A Night with Janis Joplin is rather a dissection of Janis’ artistry wrapped up in displays of unbelievable talent, and transcends any sort of jukebox or tribute musical. The representations are genuine rather than derivative, and there is a legitimate literary value to the book"
DC Metro Arts - Washington DC
 
 
 
 
This concert-as-theater, written and directed by Randy Johnson, achieves the exhilarating effect it desires.
It’s a portrait, more than anything else, of a romance: a singer in love with the cleansing embrace of the crowd.
WASHINGTON POST

 
 
 

 
 
 
"ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN IS EPIC MUSICAL THEATRE.
A stage spectacle with unarguably high performance - production standards.
These are the comforts of idyllic remembrances and associations. 
These are the diversions that can set box office records in commercial theater
and possibly, hopefully, save such theaters from extinction."
LA WEEKLY 
 
 
 
 ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN at the Pasadena Playhouse
 is simply one of the most amazing and emotional experiences offered on any Los Angeles stage so far this year.
 
BACKSTAGE MAGAZINE
 
 
 
"Sometimes theatre bears a strong resemblance to a religious experience.
A prime example is Randy Johnson's One Night with Janis Joplin:
it's an immersive and ecstatic event...."
Theater Scene - Washington DC 

 
  
 "Concert as theater is a singular art form that perhaps no one in the business understands like Johnson".
Washington Post 
 
 
 
"One Night with Janis Joplin" will take you on a powerful, painful and heart wrenching journey.
Everyone in the audience will leave with a little piece of Janis’ heart.
It will bring you to your feet in celebration of rock n’ roll in its rawest form.
It's truly is a phenomenal experience. 
Edge Magazine
 
 

 

ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN,

skillfully created and directed by Randy Johnson is living,

breathing collage of musical theatre where the late Janis Joplin is front and center. 

Beyond the music, moments of honesty and plain talk set One Night with Janis Joplin apart from a standard juke-box musical.

The music may touch your soul, but Janis will touch your heart when she addresses the audience like an old friend.

It's a show filled with powerhouse vocals, a perfect band and engaging visuals.
