Passing Strange

Book and Lyrics by Stew
Music by Stew and Heidi Rodewald
Created in collaboration with Annie Dorsen
Directed by Tea Alagić

January 10 – February 18, 2018

In this major revival of Stew and Heidi Rodewald’s Tony Award-winning musical, a rebellious young black man journeys to Europe in search of something “real.” Music takes center stage as we travel from gospel-soaked South Central LA through psychedelic Amsterdam to militant Berlin and back. This incendiary musical is a rowdy salve for turbulent times: a young punk screaming in defiance of the void, with an electric onstage band. See a musical experience ahead of its time, as The Washington Post recently proclaimed: “It’s high time Hamilton-lovers and anyone else who cares about weird, smart, highly personal art rediscover Passing Strange.”
