One Night with Janis Joplin extended in Pasadena

 The Pasadena Playhouse (Sheldon Epps, Artistic
Director and Elizabeth Doran, Executive Director) in association with Todd Gershwin and
Daniel Chilewich of One Night Productions, LLC, the Estate of Janis Joplin and Jeff Jampol of
JAM, Inc. announced that ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN enjoyed a record-breaking day
of sales yesterday, March 19, 2013. Tickets for the limited engagement, which runs through
April 21st, are going fast and select performances are nearing sold-out status.

“We are thrilled that Los Angeles has fallen in love with Janis Joplin all over again,” said
Elizabeth Doran, Executive Director of The Pasadena Playhouse. “Our theatre has been filled
with theatre and music lovers of all ages who are discovering, and re-discovering, what a
tremendous talent Janis had, which still touches us today. It is such an amazing experience to
see our audiences up on their feet, dancing and singing along at every performance.”

Already hailed by critics in Cleveland as a “feel-good, fist-pumping, must-see” show, ONE
NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN arrived in Pasadena after having left audiences clamoring for
tickets in Portland, Cleveland and Washington D.C. Performances have been extended through
April 21, 2013.

ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN, created, written and directed by Randy Johnson and
starring Mary Bridget Davies, who gives an acclaimed performance as Janis Joplin, is a full-on
concert experience and musical journey into the inspirations of one of rock ‘n’ roll’s greatest
legends. With a voice like whiskey and a laugh like pure joy, Janis Joplin took the music scene
by storm. Simultaneously rough and vulnerable, Joplin was dubbed the Queen of Rock ‘n’ Roll,
proving music wasn’t just a man’s world anymore. ONE NIGHT WITH JANIS JOPLIN also
shines a spotlight on the great African-American blues artists who influenced Janis’ musical
style and career, including Bessie Smith, Etta James and Aretha Franklin. This new musical
event includes a live onstage band and features Joplin hits and classic songs such as “Piece of
My Heart,” “Mercedes Benz,” “Me and Bobby McGee,” “Ball and Chain” and “Summertime” –
creating a compelling portrait of an artist through the words and music of one of America’s
greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll icons.
