|Music That Feels Good
|Here's what they're saying about Andra:
"Andra Mitrovich, a dynamo who's got Janis's moves really down,...As
she makes it to the mike...you could almost swear it was 1967 again."
Francine Russo - The Village Voice
Mitrovich hold(s) back nothing but go(es) all out to rouse the audience
with several encores in addition to such Joplin favorites as "Piece of
My Heart," "Get It While You Can," "Me and Bobby McGee," "Ball and
Chain," and "Turtle Blues."
Elyse Sommer - Curtain Up
Andra C. Mitrovich, as the "public" Janis, sings with so much power,
and really brings back the sound that is so Janis Joplin...
Joseph Bowen - Centerstage
...the singing role of Janis is performed by Andra Mitrovich or Cathy
Richardson. Tonight it's Ms. Mitrovich. Feather boas streaming from
her head, throwing her arms and legs and soul all over the place. She
is absolutely terrific -- singing Janis with an iron set of pipes that over
the show will color 19 songs with finesse, grace and plenty of raw
Richard Gleaves - Aisle Say New York
Two singers, Andra Mitrovich and Cathy Richardson, alternate
performances as the singing Joplin. I can't vouch for Richardson, but
Mitrovich, whose performance is the one I saw, is sensational as she
furiously launches into the signature numbers and makes Joplin's
repertoire consistently dynamic.
Wolf Entertainment Guide
Andra Mitrovich: The Beehive belter is in New York doing her Janis
Joplin thing in the off-Broadway production of Love, Janis. According to
Zachary Scott Theatre Center Artistic Director Dave Steakley, who was
up for the show's opening weekend, Mitrovich is "rockin' the house."
The night he saw the show, "the audience was going crazy for Andra --
four standing ovations."

|Janis Joplin had a profound effect for many musicians,
artists and just plain people throughout the years — but, in
Andra’s life, Janis’ energy is more than profound: It’s
magnetic. It emanates from Andra in a way that reverberates
not only Janis’ voice and music — but also the soul of
Texas-born artist Janis Joplin, a singer who refused to
compromise freedom or love as she rose from the small
town of Port Arthur to international stardom. Janis lived life
for freedom. Undoubtedly, she would smile to know that
Andra Mitrovich keeps Janis’ music, message, voice and life
on the world stage 40 years after her tragic death.
