With book and lyrics by Stew, music by Stew and Heidi Rodewald, and created in collaboration with Annie Dorsen, Passing Strange is the third planned production in the season. From singer-songwriter and performance artist Stew comes a daring new musical that takes audiences on a journey across boundaries of place, identity and theatrical convention. 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 towards personal and artistic authenticity. Passing Strange electrified Broadway in 2008, winning a Tony Award for Best Book of a Musical and numerous other awards.
