A Night with Janis Joplin is a Broadway musical that includes works of singer-songwriter Janis Joplin (1943–1970). After 22 previews, it officially opened at the Lyceum Theatre on October 10, 2013, and as of late January it was to scheduled to close in February, after 141 performances.


The musical is presented as Janis Joplin, backed by a band of hippies, performing a concert in 1970, shortly before she in fact died of drug overdose, at age 27. Among other reviews, The New York Post characterized it as sanitizing Janis Joplin and serving as a vehicle for "power-piped" Mary Bridget Davies to mostly "stick to the music".

Its Broadway run was a $3.9 million production, and $650,000 was budgeted for an Off-Broadway run that was scheduled to open at the Gramercy Theatre. The revival, however, was abruptly cancelled in April 2014, two days before it was to open.

The show performed on tour, including in Pasadena, California.
