I've been very fortunate to make some great connections with many of my participants, so much so, that when they have a new show or a show coming back around, they often contact me to do a new interview. That was the case with Kenyon Phillips who wrote to tell me his show, The Life and Death of Kenyon Phillips, was coming back for one night only at Webster Hall on August 19 at 8pm, featuring two-time Tony Nominee Daphne Rubin-Vega and was being directed by Tony Award winner Cady Huffman, who played Kenyon's mom in the show last year and now Daphne, who was Kenyon's mother in a previous version of the show, is stepping back into the role of Kenyon's mom! Well, when I heard this news, I leaped at the opportunity to interview Kenyon, Cady, and Daphne all again.
We had so much fun together, laughing for an hour and a half! I wish I could have included it all, but what's here is pure fun and heart about this dynamic show that combines theatre, burlesque, acrobats, and so much more! Click here for tickets!
THE LIFE AND DEATH OF KENYON PHILLIPS is a surrealist rock opera that uses circus, cabaret, burlesque, and vaudeville to trace the origins of downtown performance artist – and sex addict – Kenyon Phillips. Directed by Tony winner Cady Huffman, the show stars Phillips and his all-girl orchestral pop band, The Ladies In Waiting, along with TV personality Michael Musto, Tony nominee Daphne-Rubin Vega (RENT), and a host of aerialists, acrobats, and burlesquers from the NYC circus underground. After multiple sold-out performances at Joe's Pub and The Box, THE LIFE AND DEATH OF KENYON PHILLIPS moves to the grand ballroom of Webster Hall for a one-night engagement that promises more songs, more thrills, and more chills than ever before.
