And we have another victim!
Honestly, we're so confused about why this photo hacker hasn't been stopped yet!
And it's starting to seem like no one in Hollywood is safe!
Such a sad thing to keep happening.
Mary Bridget Davies Sings The Fuck Out Of Janis Joplin would have been a more appropriate title for the show we just saw on Broadway! And Mary Bridget Davies, who plays the iconic singer, is plenty reason to see this new non-musical musical.
A Night With Janis Joplin is more like a dramatized concert than a musical.
There is no book. There is no story. There is no drama - except in the music.
The show is set up like a night at a Joplin concert, as if she were still alive, and Janis talks to the audience about the blues. She talks about the blues a lot. And she sings the blues.
That's the show.
The a bit disappointing.
But the singing is EXCEPTIONAL!
Joplin's life was anything but boring and could have been quite compelling if fictionalized in a traditional musical. We're not quite sure why that route wasn't taken. But it is a missed opportunity!
Also baffling is why certain other music icons make cameos and sing in the show - actors Etta James and Aretha Franklin.
BUT, we are thankful for Aretha - for she is portrayed by the PHENOMENAL Natasha Yvette Williams, who steals the show whenever she's on stage.
If anything, presented in the way that it is, A Night With Janis Joplin is true to the singer herself - all about the music!
