Posted: November 6, 2009 by ljhadvisor in Events

On Wednesday, November 11 at 8:00 pm in the Whittenberger Auditorium, we are screening a new Spike Lee joint called Passing Strange.  It is a recording of the popular Broadway musical of the same title.  The plot focuses around a young black artist who leaves his Los Angeles digs and travels to Europe to find himself.  Along the way the young musician moves through a number of musical styles from a background of gospel to punk, and then blues, jazz, and rock. 

Following the screening will be an informal Q&A with Stew, who composed the music for the play and played the narrator of the play on stage and in the film.
