Yesterday was Lyndsey’s birthday day. Brunch, shopping and we ended the day with a performance of Love, Janis. Amazing and moving!! I had an appreciation of Janis Joplin prior to this, but now I am fan and more. Her music was deep, emotional and moving. You could really feel her pain and agony during the second act. The spoken dialogue was her real letters written home to her family. What a way to get inside her. The most moving moment was the scene where she died. The live, onstage, performing Janis, sang to the lost, alone and little girl Janis. Janis singing to herself, the emotion of the song really came out.
Anyway, GO SEE THIS SHOW!
Now I am off to buy some Janis Joplin music.
