City Theatre Co. Passing Strange

December 13, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm

Featuring Yuengling Lager, Miller Lite, Heineken and Henry’s beers.

City Theater Company blasts through Wilmington this December with Passing Strange, the powerful rock musical by Stew. This coming-of-age story follows a young black musician’s search for “The Real” — meaning and purpose through the creation of his art.

The score is pure rock, with influences from the middle-class, church-centered upbringing of its protagonist “Youth” as well as the anything-goes goth and neo-punk scenes of the character’s formative years. A dynamic five-person ensemble, guided by “Narrator,” plays multiple roles of influence. Backed by a blistering five-piece band, Passing Strange offers a truly unforgettable look at how the act of making art — in pursuit of that intangible thing called “The Real” — informs both love and loss.
