From singer-songwriter and performance artist Stew comes “Passing Strange,” a daring comedy- drama rock musical that takes you on a journey across boundaries of place, identity and theatrical convention.
Stew brings us the story of a young bohemian who charts a course for “the real” through sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. Loaded with soulful lyrics and overflowing with passion, the show takes us from Black middle-class America to Amsterdam, Berlin and beyond on a journey toward personal and artistic authenticity. It was nominated for seven Tony Awards, winning one. Spike Lee made a permanent record of the Broadway production by filming the last three performances at the Belasco Theatre.
Visiting faculty member Christopher Burris directs. With an extensive resume as a professional actor in theater, film, television and voice-over, Burris has taught and directed at Pace University, New York University and the University of California San Diego.
Director’s note: recommended for mature audiences.
