KAREN IRWIN: A PIECE OF HER HEART, A TRIBUTE TO JANIS JOPLIN

July 26 & July 27, 2013

Click here to read Rita Kohn's (Nuvo) review of Karen's show!

Local theater veteran, Karen Irwin, takes the audience on a musical journey through her own personal transformation as inspired by her musical idol, Janis Joplin.  Joplin used her “un-girly” voice and her no-holds-barred, blues-inspired performance style to triumph over her personal and social adversities, forever changing the face of women in music.   With anecdotes and Joplin songs including “Mercedes Benz,” “Piece of My Heart,” and “Bobby McGee,” Irwin pays homage to the musical icon that changed her life.
