ABOUT ANTHONY KEN LLC

AnthonyKen LLC (Anthony Wayne and Kendrell Bowman) are the creators and producers of the musicals MIGHTY REAL: A FABULOUS SYLVESTER MUSICAL and AN EVENING WITH Phyllis Hyman.

MIGHTY REAL is the acclaimed musical celebration of the life and music of the original 1970s "Queen of Disco," starring Anthony Wayne (Pippin, Anything Goes, Priscilla Queen of the Desert) as Sylvester, Jacqueline B. Arnold (An Evening With Phyllis Hyman, Priscilla Queen of the Desert) as Martha Wash, and Anastacia McCleskey (Waitress, Violet, Book of Mormon, Priscilla ...) as Izora Armstead. Previously known as Fabulous, One More Time, the musical began a series of concerts at le poisson rouge in New York City in 2012. These early concerts were followed by sold-out performances at The Howard Theatre in Washington, D.C. in January 2013, and additional performances in Miami soon followed. MIGHTY REAL: A FABULOUS SYLVESTER MUSICAL made its Off-Broadway premiere in an acclaimed one-month limited engagement in September 2014. Later that year, Mr. Wayne was featured as one of Out magazine's "Out 100." The production was nominated for a 2015 Off-Broadway Alliance Award and a 2015 AUDELCO Award for Best New Musical. In early 2015, the musical headed west to The BRAVA! Theater in San Francisco for a limited engagement, and performances/engagements followed in Philadelphia, D.C., and Atlanta. The show returned to BRAVA! Theater in San Francisco for an acclaimed, sold-out limited engagement in February 2016. MIGHTY REAL: A FABULOUS SYLVESTER MUSICAL was featured in the acclaimed music documentary series "Unsung: Revisted" in 2015. The Live Original Cast Recording is available online on iTunes and CD Baby.

AN EVENING WITH Phyllis Hyman is a reimagining of the legendary R&B singer's final performance in Philadelphia, the night before her scheduled Apollo performance on the day she took her life. Jacqueline B. Arnold stars as Ms. Hyman. This musical debuted Off-Broadway in January 2017.
