Janis Joplin is making her way to the Great White Way, as A Night With Janis Joplin, a musical tribute to the icon, heads to Broadway this fall.

Vintage Vinyl News describes the show as "a musical tribute to the singer's life and times." It is scheduled to arrive on Broadway October 10, opening at the Lyceum Theatre.

Calling Joplin "a must-see headliner from Monterey to Woodstock," the show's synopsis promises "a musical journey celebrating the inspirations of one of rock 'n' roll's greatest legends."
