CURTAIN UP: This week, we spotlight Passing Strange, a comedy-drama rock musical about a young African American’s journey of self-discovery as an artist, while combining strong existentialist and meta-fictional elements. The musical’s lyrics and book are by Stew with music and orchestrations by Heidi Rodewald and Stew.
After engagements at the Berkeley Rep in October 2006 and Off-Broadway at The Public Theater in New York City in May 2007, the show opened on Broadway on February 28, 2008, running 165 performances.
