“Call it a rock concert with a story to tell… Or call it a sprawling work of performance art… I’ll just call it wonderful.” - The New York Times
Porchlight Revisits Passing Strange is directed by Donterrio, music directed by Justin Akira Kono and choreographed by Terri K. Woodall. From L.A. to Amsterdam to Berlin, a young musician chases youthful dreams and spiritual clarity against a shifting backdrop of locales and acquaintances as he rebels against his conservative upbringing. This hit rock musical, loaded with soulful lyrics and passion, debuted to critical acclaim on Broadway in 2008, winning both the Tony and Drama Desk Awards and went on to be a critically acclaimed motion picture filmed by Spike Lee in 2009. The New York Times said about its Broadway debut, “Call it a rock concert with a story to tell … Or call it a sprawling work of performance art … I’ll just call it wonderful.” Every Porchlight Revisits includes a “Behind the Show Backstory” hosted by Artistic Director Michael Weber that explores, with a fun, multi-media presentation, the news, the behind the scenes stories of that night’s production and more!
