NEW YORK (AP) -- Fans of "A Night With Janis Joplin" will just have to hold on, hold on.

Producers said Wednesday they have had to postpone indefinitely the off-Broadway opening "due to production issues." The show made a splash on Broadway in October and was to open Thursday at the smaller Gramercy Theatre in Chelsea.

Featuring a powerful performance by Mary Bridget Davies as Joplin alongside a quartet of extremely talented singers, the loud, colorful, '60s-saturated spectacle featured most of the singer's hits, including "Down on Me," ''Piece of My Heart," ''Mercedes Benz" and "Me and Bobby McGee."

Refunds for the off-Broadway run will be available.
