A musical about the life of Janis Joplin is heading to Broadway this autumn (13). A Night With Janis Joplin will begin previews at New York's Lyceum Theatre on 20 September (13) after wrapping up a successful two-year tour of the U.S. The concert-style show, featuring Mary Bridget Davies as the Piece of My Heart hitmaker, who died of a drug overdose in 1970, will be directed by Randy Johnson and produced in connection with the executors of Joplin's estate, according to the New York Times. The production has received rave reviews since it premiered at the Portland Center Stage in Oregon in 2011.
