We are legitimately excited about this production. There’s nothing like the portrait of an artist’s struggle with alcohol and drugs to warm the cockles of our jaded heart. Told through Joplin’s interviews and letters to her family, Love, Janis, tells the story of the iconic singer’s rise to fame. Songs performed include “Piece of My Heart,” “Me and Bobby MGee” and “Mercedes Benz,” to name a few.
