Starring Grammy-nominated Sophie B. Hawkins and written and directed by acclaimed filmmaker Gigi Gaston, Room 105 is a thoughtful and entertaining tribute to legendary soul singer Janis Joplin. The show is a humorous, engaging, bittersweet and honest confessional. Hawkins as Joplin's Ghost returned invites audiences into her creative world and turbulent life, telling a story that reveals the iconic singer's thoughts on love, sex, fame and belonging.
Showcasing classic Joplin music and original songs by Sophie B. Hawkins, Room 105 brings the transformative counterculture of the 1960's to life, with realistic imagery, and riveting dramatic elements of past to present day. "Hawkins echoes the fire of Joplin herself!" affirms Aspen Times.
American singer, songwriter and musician Sophie B. Hawkins is best know for her hits "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover," "Right Beside You," and "As I Lay Me Down." Her 1992 debut album "Tongues and Tails" earned her a Grammy nomination for "Best New Artist."
Room 105 premiered on October 4, 2013 at West Hollywood's Macha Theater - on the anniversary of Joplin's death - just blocks away from where the iconic singer had her last drink before her untimely death at age 27. The show enjoyed an extended run, and received critical acclaim. Now music and theatre fans on the East Coast can enjoy this modern-day retrospective and dynamic tribute to Janis Joplin. All are invited to Room 105 – for one night only - at the Bergen Performing Arts Center on February 23!
Room 105 is presented by Tommy Thompson and Colleen Camp along with Flying Turtle Productions.
