BWW Exclusive: THE LIFE + DEATH OF KENYON PHILLIPS Will Return to Joe's Pub on 10/24
After its sold-out, world-premiere performance at Joe's Pub this past spring, Kenyon Phillips's autobiographical 90-minute rock opera, The Life + Death of Kenyon Phillips, will return to Joe's Pub (425 Lafayette St., New York, NY 10003) on Friday, October 24th, 2014, at 7:00PM.
The Life + Death of Kenyon Phillips is a 90-minute rock opera that uses an interactive rock-cabaret-variety show format - with several circus acts thrown in for good measure - to explore the past, present and future of downtown performance artist Kenyon Phillips. Kenyon says his inspiration for the project came from a desire "to take the traditional one-man show idea of 'here's my life story,' and throw a grenade in it."
View an exclusive video preview of The Life + Death of Kenyon Phillips below!
Tickets are $22 each and available online here, by visiting the Joe's Pub box office, or by calling (212) 967-7555.
Casting for the engagement will be announced at a later date.
KENYON PHILLIPS -- Dubbed "the love child of Luther Vandross and Steven Tyler" by pop culture commentator Michael Musto, Kenyon Phillips knows how to put on a show. The wildly theatrical singer, songwriter, actor, writer, model, dancer, and DJ has been busy "being there, doing that" all over New York City since the days of Y2K. In addition to founding and fronting the bands Roma!, Unisex Salon and Thrill A Minute, Kenyon has written and produced songs for Amy Poehler, Joey Arias, Raven O, and Sherry Vine; moonlighted as emcee of notorious vaudeville nightclub The Box; performed with renowned "punk ballerina" and choreographer Karole Armitage; and appeared as a silhouetted dancer in multiple campaigns for the Apple iPod. As he puts it, "There are very few things that I won't do for money." Backed by his all-girl band The Ladies In Waiting, Kenyon regularly performs his trademark blend of glam rock, surrealist theater and cabaret at Joe's Pub - one of the top 10 venues in the US, according to Rolling Stone Magazine. With influences ranging from Roxy Music to "Thriller"-era Michael Jackson, Kenyon's sound tends to err on the dancier side of glam. His songs have been featured on several network and cable television programs, including "Shameless" on Showtime, "Eleventh Hour" on CBS, "The Mighty B!" on Nickelodeon, and "Teen Cribs" on MTV. His debut solo EP Fire In The Hole was released in September 2013, and was helmed by multi-platinum award-winning producer, mixer and songwriter David Bendeth (Paramore, Papa Roach, Breaking Benjamin, Cowboy Junkies, Crash Test Dummies, IMA Robot).
