Cady Huffman to Direct One-Night-Only Performance of 'KENYON PHILLIPS' at Webster Hall This Summer

Kenyon Phillips, known for his inventive blend of orchestral rock, surrealist theater and interactive cabaret, resurrects his autobiographical rock opera The Life and Death of Kenyon Phillips this August at Webster Hall. Following a series of sold-out performances at Joe's Pub and The Box over the last few months, this one-night-only performance will occur Wednesday, August 19 at 8:00pm in the grand ballroom of one of North America's most historic entertainment venues.

Stocked with Phillips's catchiest songs and featuring his all-girl orchestral rock band, The Ladies in Waiting, this night of rock opera-meets-circus-meets-cabaret-meets-burlesque-meets vaudeville will be directed and choreographed by Tony Award-winning actress Cady Huffman, who played Phillips's mother in the March and April run of the show at The Box. Armed with a long resume in Broadway, film and television, Huffman intends to spotlight the uniqueness and spectacle of Phillips's journey in and out of the relationships that bring him to a metaphorical death. A Felliniesque merging of sex, circus and rock and roll, The Life and Death of Kenyon Phillips showcases a candid bravery, a contagious charm and a titillating confusion of fantasy, reality and nightmare.

Cady Huffman to Direct One-Night-Only Performance of 'KENYON PHILLIPS' at Webster Hall This Summer"I'm excited to bring Kenyon's vision to life," explains Huffman. "The plan is to crawl into his brain and extract what even he doesn't know is in there. Webster Hall gives us the opportunity to blow up his joyful, dirty, burlesque-performance art and splatter it all over his audience in a unique and massive space. It's thrilling when something is new and daring and full of dirty goodness!"

"I can't wait to see what Cady does with my life and death," enthuses Phillips. "She brings over three decades of experience to the production, and I trust her innately. The fact that she can challenge, inspire and make me laugh all at the same time is crucial, since that's what I want the show to do for everyone who sees it."

General Admission tickets are $50 and $30, with balcony access at $65 and preferred seating for $75. Tickets are available online at http://tktwb.tw/1EV6X9y for patrons 18+.
