SHOW DESCRIPTION:

"Passing Strange," a daring musical from singer-songwriter and performance artist Stew that takes the audience on a journey across boundaries of place, identity, and theatrical convention. Stew brings 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 the audience from black middle-class America to Amsterdam, Berlin, and beyond on a journey towards personal and artistic authenticity.

As the creator Stew says: "It's...about the costs of being a young artist. It's a 46-year-old guy looking back at the things that he did and the values he had in his 20s, sort of when you're making that decision to really be an artist...”
