The LaGuardia Mellon Humanities Scholars will be attending the upcoming performance of Passing Strange at LaGuardia Performing Arts Center on Friday, January 27, at 8:00 pm.
An autobiography of a young African-American artist in search of himself, on an artistic journey of self-discovery through Europe.
From singer-songwriter and performance artist Stew comes PASSING STRANGE, a daring musical that takes you on a journey across boundaries of place, identity and theatrical convention. Stew brings us the story of a young bohemian who charts a course for “the real” through sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll. Loaded with soulful lyrics and overflowing with passion, the show takes us from black middle-class America to Amsterdam, Berlin and beyond on a journey towards personal and artistic authenticity.
