"The story is related by the Narrator, a grownup version of the misguided Youth, with a distinct sense of irony... and a kinetic, eclectic score that ranges from gospel to punk rock." - The Philadelphia Inquirer

    'Passing Strange' at the Wilma: Updated, rocking tale of Youth's quest for identity
