Cheo Bourne, Cliff Odle et al. Set for New Rep's Passing Strange
Created by Stew (playwright/composer/lyricist) and Heidi Rodewald (composer), the show takes audiences on a pilgrimage led by a Narrator who shares his life through song. This soulful journey follows a young man from a comfortable, suburban neighborhood in Los Angeles, to the coffeehouses of an Amsterdam paradise, and finally to the riotous art houses of West Berlin, as he searches for his artistic and personal voice--what he calls "the real."
The cast will feature Cheo Bourne (Youth), De'Lon Grant (Terry/Christopher/Hugo), Eve Kagan (Sherry/Marianna/Sudabey), Cliff Odle (Narrator), Maurice E. Parent (Franklin/Joop/Mr. Venus), Cheryl Singleton (Mother), and Kami Rusell Smith (Edwina/Renata/Desi).
The creative team will include Eric Levenson (scenic design), Gail Astrid Buckley (costume design), Karen Parsons (lighting design), and Aaron Mack (sound design).
