After it's world premiere at Berkeley Rep, an extended off-Broadway run at The Public Theatre, and winning four Audelco Awards, the rock musical Passing Strange will open at Broadway's Belasco Theatre on Feb. 28, 2008.
The outrageous, touching and humorous story about a young black bohemian who makes his pilgrimage to the Real through sex, drugs, and rock'n'roll, was written and performed by Stew (book and lyrics; music by Stew and Heidi Rodewald) and directed by Annie Dorsen.
"As we celebrate Berkeley Rep's 40th birthday, it's gratifying to know that a wider audience will get a taste of the daring work that's been seen on our stage for decades," said Artistic Director, Tony Taccone.
In the last two years, Berkeley Rep has helped send five shows to Manhattan, including Bridge and Tunnel, Brundibar, Eurydice and Till the Break of Dawn.
