From Broadway to Windsor: A Night With Janis Joplin on November 4Book A Room
For immediate release: August 23, 2017
Windsor, ON – Caesars Windsor is thrilled to welcome the critically acclaimed Broadway hit musical A Night With Janis Joplin to The Colosseum stage Saturday, November 4 at 9 pm.
Like a comet that burned too brightly to last, Janis Joplin exploded onto the music scene in 1967 and, almost overnight, became the queen of rock & roll. Her unmistakable voice was filled with raw emotion and tinged with Southern Comfort. It was a voice that made her a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock. With a stable of unforgettable songs such as “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Piece of My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” Cry Baby” and “Summertime,” Joplin performed the music that defined a generation.
Fueled by these amazing songs, A Night With Janis Joplin is a sensational show featuring a musical journey celebrating Joplin and her biggest musical influences like Aretha Franklin, Etta James, Odetta, Nina Simone and Bessie Smith. These are the women who inspired one of rock & roll’s greatest legends. The New York Times raved that this musical “rocks the house” and Daily Variety called the show “electrifying.”
Created, written and directed by Randy Johnson, A Night With Janis Joplin is a musical that’s staged like a rock concert that you never want to end, and The Colosseum is proud to bring this unforgettable production to Caesars Windsor.
