NEW YORK -- It was not a conspiracy, but a coincidence, that several groups decided to assassinate President Kennedy on the same day, at the same time and in the same place.
That's the theory behind AssassiNation: We Killed Kennedy,a rock opera playing at the Bowery Poetry Club (http://www.bowerypoetry.com) at 308 Bowery on Aug. 19. Doors open at 8 p.m.
Death of the Party will perform the music by former Vampyr Theatre writer Tony Sokol, along with special guests: burlesque diva and public access TV host The Goddess Miss Kitty, playing Marilyn Monroe and choreographing special dance numbers; Cathy G of the band Public Animal and Sandra Grace of Sister Sez.
And it's all part of a larger show headlined by the Star People, who will present a sci-fi multimedia rock opera experience. Other acts include: a Frank Sinatra tribute by Jesse Posa; GoGo Girls featuring Miss Kitty and Polly Peabody and mistresses of ceremonies Miss Mary A and Editrix Abby.
If you only see two rock operas this week, make them AssassiNation and Star People.

Joe Bohmer: keyboards and vocals
Rob DeGeorge: guitar and vocals
Amanda Droste: vocals
Stephanie Streisand: saxophone and vocals
Richard Haviland: drums
Tony Sokol: vocals, bass, guitar
Dancers: Caitlin Moore and Kelly Carlson
