    • Quantum Janis: An Immersive Musical Theater Experience The audience is invited to enter an alternate universe to attend an art exhibition and performance piece inspired by quantum physics.  The venue is owned by Janis Joplin except that in this alternate world, Janis Joplin did not become one the greatest legendary rock stars.  Instead, she quit the music business, did not die of a heroin overdose and is an African American woman living in San Francisco.  What happens over the course of the evening brings up profound questions about time, illusion and how different choices create different worlds.
