Tony-Award Winning Musical Passing Strange Coming to Playhouse on Park!;


Playhouse on Park, 244 Park Road, West Hartford, CT , 06119

Playhouse on Park is thrilled to present Passing Strange, a Tony award-winning soulful rock musical running from December 2nd-December 20th. Opening night, and the official Connecticut premiere of Passing Strange is set for Friday, December 4th at 7:30pm, with a wine and cheese reception before the show.

Hailed by the Wall Street Journal as the “freshest musical in town,” Passing Strange chronicles the travels of its protagonist, Youth, an African-American bohemian musician struggling to find himself and what's "real" in life. His journey begins in black middle-class America, and his heart leads him to Amsterdam, Berlin and beyond, where experiences with sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll pave the way to self-revelation. Music and theater lovers alike will instantly connect through passionate performances presenting themes of family, roots, and personal authenticity. Playhouse on Park is proud to be one of the only professional theaters to produce this ground breaking musical written by singer-songwriter and performance artist Stew.
