"'A Night With Janis Joplin' brings down the house at Ordway. Joplin lived her life for music, and found herself most at home there. In song, she was strong and vulnerable, fearless and afraid. “A Night with Janis Joplin” is not just a concert biography of one person, but an urgent, howling cry from a bygone era" Star Tribune.
"Currently breaking box office and attendance records across the country Randy Johnson's A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN is a cosmic collusion of persona and perception. This electrifying Tony Award nominated musical resurrects the Queen of Rock 'n' Roll with the sort of seismically sensational results normally encountered at stadiums and pop festivals... the premise is basic, unvarnished and supremely effective. Neither venue nor attendees may ever be the same."
Los Angeles Times
"A dynamic, powerful musical journey back through the late 1960s. Janis Joplin is alive and well in this electrifying Broadway musical. The show features 26 musical numbers precisely paced throughout the show, each building more and more momentum and energy along the incredible journey that is A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN".
"Though the fact of it is inescapable, rather than focusing on the cliché of Janis’ tragic and early death, this musical focuses on how music saved her and how it defined her passion and gave her life direction. Randy Johnson's A NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN IS not just of the power of music, but of that greater power only to be found in theatre, where story emboldens the songs and familiar melodies are suddenly lifted and filled with new purpose, seizing the intention of a specific moment in the story. It was a night that truly rocked my soul ! Huffington Post
“A Night With Janis Joplin,” the sensation currently blowing away audiences at The 5th Avenue Theatre, makes one believe that the legendary rocker has risen from the dead".
