“A terrific show…a musical in the guise of a concert…pulsates with the sounds of pop, rock, funk, punk, gospel, folk and New Wave…Music that feels authentic-a rarity in this world of shiny, corporate musical theater.”

Directed by and created in collaboration with ANNIE DORSEN
Movement Coordination by KAROLE ARMITAGE
Featuring de’Adre Aziza, Daniel Breaker, Eisa Davis, Colman Domingo, Chad Goodridge, Rebecca Jones, Stew
From Los Angeles to Amsterdam to Berlin and back, PASSING STRANGE takes musical theater on a whole new trip. From singer-songwriter and performance artist Stew comes PASSING STRANGE, a daring new musical that takes you on a journey across boundaries of place, identity, and theatrical convention. STEW, a popular performer at Joe’s Pub, was commissioned by The Public to develop this moving and hilarious story of a young black bohemian in search of self and home who charts a course for “the real” through sex, drugs, and rock and roll. A co-production with Berkeley Repertory Theatre.
