Your favorite OITR night on the town, Divas in the Rock, this season features Mary Bridget Davies, 2014 TONY Award nominee for her role as Janis Joplin in Broadway’s A Night with Janis Joplin, at the University of Arkansas Pulaski Technical College’s Center for Humanities and the Arts (UAPTC-CHARTS) on Friday, October 8, on the North Little Rock campus. Davies will be performing iconic Joplin hits and more during this gala celebration.

Joplin was a lover of operatic works, most notably George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess. Her grit and distinctive mezzo-soprano voice can be remembered through the popular songs “Piece of my Heart,” “Me and Bobby McGehee,” “Mercedes Benz” and Gershwin’s “Summertime.”.
