ArtsEmerson: The World On Stage presents Passing Strange. Already a hit Broadway show, Passing Strange tells the story of a young black man who decides to leave behind his religious, middle-class upbringing in 1970s Los Angeles and head to Europe to find something "real." In racy Amsterdam and militarized Berlin, he encounters some misadventures with sex, drugs, art and politics, causing him to realize how much he left behind at his home. Famed director Spike Lee brings his signature touch to this contemporary musical, filming the event with multi-camera coverage and providing a unique glimpse to the backstage process of the actors in the show. This electric collaboration between theatre and film artists is not to be missed.
