Event Details

Get ready to embark on a thrilling musical journey with Passing Strange. This Tony Award-winning show, which inspired a Spike Lee movie, follows the life of a young Black musician, known as The Youth, as he searches for his artistic and personal identity.

Set against the backdrop of the 1970s and 80s, the story takes you on a wild ride from the gospel churches of South Central LA to the punk rock clubs of Amsterdam and Berlin. Filled with electrifying rock music, soulful ballads, and powerful storytelling, Passing Strange is a triumph of live theater.

You’ll be swept up in The Youth’s quest to find himself, and you’ll experience the ups and downs of his relationships. With themes of race, art, and rebellion, this show is as relevant today as it was when it first premiered on Broadway.

Don’t miss your chance to see this groundbreaking production live! Buy your tickets now and prepare to be moved and inspired by Passing Strange. You won’t be disappointed!
