Passing Strange On Broadway Is Not A Show; It’s An Expedition!
Wed & Sat 2pm
Tue through Sat 8pm
Passing Strange on Broadway is here to touch the core of your heart! What would you do if you were a young, black musician with a rebellious nature, trapped in a middle-class, church going family devoid of fun and adventure? Well, we don’t know what exactly you would do, but this young, black musician runs away from home!
Then starts an adventurous, but rather messy, journey through Amsterdam and Berlin. Drugs, sex, and sleaze – the musician experiences it all. A struggle to keep up with honesty and morality and a fight against the chaotic and political society of Berlin is all what this aspiring young lad gets during his rebellious journey.
What happens at the end? Does the musician leave this immoral society and go back home or does he decide to change himself and become one of them? Well, this is for you to find out by watching Passing Strange on Broadway ! It’s running at the Belasco Theater since February 28, 2008.
Don’t think that the entire story is painted with a grim picture and has a tragic turn to it. There’s one good thing that happens with the musician. By passing through strange lands, he is able to grasp various styles of music, ranging from jazz and rock to blues.
So, if you’re a music lover and want some rhythmic beats to touch your hearts, watch Passing Strange on Broadway. It has some wonderful numbers that will remain on your lips for long. The music is given by Heidi Rodewald and Stew.
The show has been directed by Annie Dorsen. It has been produced by the collective efforts of The Shubert Organization Inc., the Public Theatre, and Elizabeth Ireland McCann.
