Powerful play. Powerful performances. An unexpected extra: Remaining tickets are half off 30 minutes prior to show.

It is an impressive structure with glass al around the theaters, which are amazing modern and high tech giving you an extraordinary experience. Also the views from the terrace and the café are good options for expending some time before the event.

WOW! What a great show - must see if you dig Janis, the blues, rock and roll, soul, or any live music for that matter. Very well done.

My friend and I had front row seats for the recent showing of "One Night With Janis Joplin". Although this was fabulous, there isn't a bad seat in the house. The show was absolutely wonderful. A magnificent group of performers, and Mary Bridget Davies as Janis made me believe she'd come back from the dead. The audience was really into it - how could you not be? I would never have imagined anyone being able to channel Janis the way Mary did - in every aspect - gestures, mannerisms, not to mention the PERFORMANACE - as my friend said, it was just 'raw' - absolutely. Would LOVE to see it on Broadway, but actually, such an up close and personal experience was absolutely perfect. A show I will never forget. Kudos to all - and the entire staff at Arena Stage - great job answering questions, directing, service, ticket checkers - everyone! Greatly appreciated.

Arena Stage was a great venue for One Night With Janis Joplin! The intimate theater makes the audience feel so close to the cast of this show destined for success on Broadway. The Blues singers made the historic musical connections so real. Wow! Alison Cusano made Janis Joplin come ALIVE, man! What a fun experience! (If there was a dance "area" up front...I would have totally been there. I was chair dancing as best I could....until the end when the crowd was told to stand up and rock out!) Cheers to director/creator Randy Johnson! I think I have to make that trip to NYC to experience another flashback with Janis.
(Thank you to Arena Stage....for the comfortable seat and the tart Margarita.)
