“Livin’ Janis,” a theatrical, musical tribute to the late great Janis Joplin starring Big Easy Award-winning actress and vocalist Dorian Rush, is coming to Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts for one night only on Friday, March 25.

HAMMOND – One of Rock n’ Roll’s most notorious singers will “appear” on the stage of Southeastern Louisiana University’s Columbia Theatre for the Performing Arts for one show only on Friday, March 25, at 7:30 p.m.
Big Easy Award-winning actress Dorian Rush takes on the role of Janis Joplin in “Livin’ Janis.” The New Orleans-based theatrical production is a completely unauthorized, biographical, musical homage to the late great rock legend.
“Audience members will ride the highs and lows of Janis’ life as she embarks on a quest to wring the pleasure out of life at the cultural crossroads of the 1960s,” said Ken Boulton, Columbia Theatre interim director. “Since the show contains adult themes and strong language, it is recommended for mature audiences only.”
Tickets for Livin’ Janis range from $22 - $32 and are available at the Columbia Theatre box office on Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 11 a.m. – 4 p.m. or by phone at (985) 543-4371. Patrons may also get tickets online at www.columbiatheatre.org.
