Of all the musicals hitting Broadway this season, none have stirred the excitement and curiosity of Passing Strange, which hits the Great White Way on February 8 after a four-year developmental process, including productions at Berkeley Rep and the Public Theatre. The autobiographical, semi-narrated piece tells the story of Youth (played by the electrifying Daniel Breaker) who travels from L.A. to Amsterdam, Berlin, and back home again in search of his personal and musical identity. At a recent press event, TheaterMania got a sneak preview at some of the show's musical numbers and spoke with co-creators Stew, Heidi Rodewald, and Annie Dorsen, as well as Public Theater artistic director Oskar Eustis, about this sure-to-be-talked-about musical.
