The European premiere of the Tony Award-winning rock musicalPassing Strange.

You know, it's weird when you wake up in the morning and realize that your entire adult life was based on a decision made by a teenager. A stoned teenager.

A young musician sets out on an electrifying musical odyssey to find himself and his place in the world, swapping his middle-class L.A. upbringing for punk rock and protest in 1980s Amsterdam and Berlin.

Olivier Award-winner Giles Terera (Hamilton)Rachel Adedeji (Dreaming Whilst Black) and Keenan Munn-Francis (Black Dog) star in the European premiere of Passing Strange. Directed by Liesl Tommy (Aretha Franklin biopic Respect, Tony nominated Eclipsed), with book and lyrics by Stew and music by Stew Stewart and Heidi Rodewald.

"Its big heart throbs to the sound of electric guitars... Richer in wit, feeling and sheer personality than most of what is classified as musical theater" (New York Times).

"A thrilling score in which rock, punk, funk and gospel conduct a revival meeting that blows the roof off" (Rolling Stone).

Please note that Brandon Lee Sears will play the part of the Narrator on Wednesday matinee and evening performances
