If that whole restaurant thing doesn't work out, Todd English has options. The party-going chef is slated to join the cast of the world premiere performance of The Life + Death of Kenyon Phillips at Joe's Pub in New York City. It's a one-night only stint with an "interactive rock-cabaret-variety show format" that tells the life story of socialite DJ Kenyon Phillips, who incidentally has been called "the love child of Luther Vandross and Steven Tyler." Appearing alongside English are luminaries like gossip maven Michael Musto, writer/performer David Cale, Broadway actress Daphne Rubin-Vega, and drag performer Flotilla DeBarge. The show is on May 2 at 9 p.m. Tickets are $20. It's unclear what English's role in the production might be, though Phillips's DJ proclivities err on the "dancier side of glam."
