"a grand yet intimate piece of musical theater" "a tour-de-force performance from Jamar Williams" "Several actors in PASSING STRANGE are part of the Wilma’s recently formed HotHouse, a troupe devoted to intense physical training and to new ideas about interpretation. This production brims with them." - WHYY #WilmaPassingStrange

    Review: 'Passing Strange,' and grandly
    Broad Street between Locust and Spruce streets Runs through Feb. 18 - Bold, boisterous, and bellicose, the Wilma Theater production of the musical "Passing Strange" seems much more real than it did on Broadway 10 years ago. And that's important: What's real or not is at the core of the engrossing musical.

This would be a good read for any business who are worried about the idea of protected bike lanes. This isn't just a one off. There is a lot of data out there showing that improved bicycle infrastructure (including bike parking & protected bike lanes) is beneficial to local business.

    Business Man Changes his Mind about Separate Bike Lanes! * Average Joe Cyclist
    Business people around the world have tended to oppose separate bike lanes. But here's a turnaround from a Vancouver businessman that many readers will find very encouraging! I have supported separate bike lanes for a long time. I have watched with amazement as businesses in Vancouver have fought tooth and nail against separate bike lanes in Vancouver.
