Eddie Star Set To Perform A Rockquiem At The Triad Theater
Eddie Star will be performing in the elevated, staged reading of Philip Paul Kelly's new musical "Rockquiem For A Wrestler," which will take place at the Triad Theater on May 3, 2020, at 4 pm.
The musical inspired by the life of champion wrestler Ivan Koloff features compositions from Star's catalog and songwriter Paul Castrataro (The Portrait of Dorian Gray, Fags & Cellphones, Black Iris).
The musical had an initial successful reading last March at the Triad Theater and has been
under continued development over the past year. This time Star will be performing with a full
band, and the reading will include technical enhancements.
Star released a single and video last October, his version of the classic Rocky Horror Picture Show opening classic, "Science Fiction/Double Feature." Admission to the reading will be complimentary, and refreshments will be available for purchase. For updates and information, please visit https://www.rockquiem.com.
