A must-see play for Janis fans and something that music historians and fans of simple and straight forward performances will enjoy. These kinds of stories and takes on moments of history are what the Fringe is all about!... full review

"My Janis” is a very touching play. Adriana Veronesi resemblance with JJ is impressive. Her body language, voice, smiles broth on the stage JJ’s pain and hunger for love and happiness. It was very emotional performance. Janis was there.... full review

Veronesi is fesrless and breathtaking as Joplin. It felt as if she channeled the artist in her most vulnerable and private moments while she was bombarded with her deamons of insecurity and shame. ... full review

Soulful, raw, engaging. MY JANIS is an emotional whirlpool. The show opens with a powerful but still "dance" that almost felt like a spiritual conjuring and drags you into the world that Veronesi's Janis intimately inhabits, almost like a ghost. The room in which the show is set feels like you're actually in Janis Joplin's head and Arianna Veronesi's vibrant interpretation guides the audience through the highs and lows of this charismatic woman's fears, hopes and dreams. A very sophisticated character study. I would definitely recommend it.... full review

This short, intimate feeling play is touching on many levels. With less than a 30 minute running time, My Janis offers a glimpse into a very specific moment when famous singer Janis Joplin faced a life-changing decision. A fascinating portrait of a frightened, tortured artist.... full review
CHRISTINA EVANS certified reviewer July 06, 2017
Arianna explores a moment in Janis Joplins life that is full of inner conflict, temptation and the need for artistic expression. Arianna plays her with deep physicality, commitment and honest exploration. It is an interesting moment in Janis' life, ending with her hesitant choice to launch into the spotlight. A unique and heartfelt piece. ... full review
