A touring Janis Joplin tribute show has the blessings of the late singer’s brother and sister. USA Today spoke to Michael and Laura Joplin about One Night With Janis Joplin, which runs through November 4th in Washington, D.C.

Michael Joplin says, “We wanted [audiences] to sing and laugh and have a good time, and to remember Janis like I remember her: funny and real, with this big voice.” Laura adds, the emphasis is “on Janis’ music, which was pure joy.” Laura praises playwright Rob Johnson, whose work on a similarly formatted show on Patsy Cline impressed her enough that she gave her blessings for him to stage one about Janis. “We started talking about how to connect Janis’ songs to her earlier life, and it got us remembering a lot of things.”

Mary Bridget Davies, whom Michael says is a lifelong Joplin fan, plays Janis.
