Off-Broadway Janis Joplin Musical Delayed
Fans of “A Night With Janis Joplin” will just have to hold on, hold on.
Producers said Wednesday they have had to postpone indefinitely the off-Broadway opening “due to production issues.” The show made a splash on Broadway in October and was to open Thursday at the smaller Gramercy Theatre in Chelsea.
Featuring a powerful performance by Mary Bridget Davies as Joplin alongside a quartet of extremely talented singers, the loud, colorful, ‘60s-saturated spectacle featured most of the singer’s hits, including “Down on Me,” ‘‘Piece of My Heart,” ‘‘Mercedes Benz” and “Me and Bobby McGee.”
