Highly highly highly recommended Broadway show

Highly highly highly recommended Broadway show

Stew in “Passing Strange,” whose credits are: Book, Lyrics, Co-Composer, Co-Orchestrator, Narrator

I wish more films lived up to the excellence of a show I just saw on Broadway. (And I am so not a lover of Broadway musicals.) Maybe “Passing Strange” is a Broadway musical for independent film lovers. All elements– story, catchy (rock) music, acting, choreography, lights– were perfect. It charts the course of a musician, via sex and drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, from his youth in middle class black America to Europe and beyond.

Earlier this week the show was nominated for several Tony’s, Broadway’s Oscars. I’ll be rooting for it on June 15, the night of the awards.
