Love, Janis. This aural and visual biography of the late rock icon Janis Joplin will neither disappoint her fans nor repel the uninitiated. The Cleveland Play House production uses two actresses to enact Joplin's private and public sides simultaneously. The private person is played with an affecting Texas accent and endearing naivete by Catherine Curtain, while Beth Hart, who has a strange, feral beauty, portrays the singing Joplin and goes beyond imitation to generate her own brand of star power. Through April 4. Reviewed March 11.
