The best part of the show for me was how the singers who influenced Janis were brought into the production. Each one was a great singer in her own right. I thoroughly enjoyed the show.

It is a great show, almost an off-broadway one. But you feel like you are seeing the real Janis Joplin, and more Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone. Great singers.
