Overview

Ghostlight Records is proud to announce the Original Cast Album of the critically acclaimed new Broadway musical Passing Strange, recorded in front of a live audience at the Belasco Theatre. Penned by writer/lyricist Stew (founder of the acclaimed band The Negro Problem) and musical collaborator Heidi Rodewald, Passing Strange is the coming-of-age-story of a middle-class youth seeking to find "the real" by embarking on a journey of escape and exploration. Leaving the confines of his upbringing, he discovers it is the voyage within that counts. From the Label

Editorial Reviews

Los Angeles Times - Charles McNulty
1/2 "Passing Strange" is one of those rare contemporary cast recordings with music that's as enjoyable to listen to as it is to experience live in the theater. Lyrically, Stew is a wizard -- introspective, verbally playful and unafraid to challenge convention or himself.... There's a wealth of music to savor, and the CD invites repeated listening, so you can hear the electric-guitar arpeggios and lush orchestrations mapping out a soul's unsteady but unstoppable progress.
San Francisco Chronicle - Robert Hurwitt
It's one of those special cast albums that repays repeated listening.
