A one-night-only presentation of The Life + Death of Kenyon Phillips, Phillips' autobiographical rock opera, is presented May 2 at Joe's Pub.

The 9 PM concert features the talents of Daphne Rubin-Vega, Michael Musto, Chaske Spencer, David Cale, Brad Calcaterra, Marlon Taylor-Wiles, Vanessa Walters, Geoffrey Sobelle, T Bruin, Aurora Black, Alisha Judge, Joanna Pickering, Justin Sams and Cheryl Freeman.

The Life + Death of Kenyon Phillips, according to press notes, is a 90-minute rock opera that "uses an interactive rock-cabaret-variety show format to tell the story of this colorful New Yorker's life and eventual death. 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.'"
