Book and Lyrics by Stew | Music by Stew and Heidi Rodewald
Created in collaboration with Annie Dorsen

Starring LeRoy Bell (The X Factor), this award-winning Off-Broadway hit is finally taking the Seattle stage. Passing Strange is a daring musical that follows a young black musician on his journey of self-discovery from his middle-class roots in Los Angeles to Amsterdam, Berlin, and back. Rock music drives a tale of sex, drugs, humor, and heartbreak in this show that’s light on “showtunes” but big on heart.

 

“Call it a rock concert with a story to tell, trimmed with a lot of great jokes. Or call it a sprawling work of performance art, complete with angry rants and scary drag queens. Call it whatever you want, really. I’ll just call it wonderful…” —The New York Times
