Time Out Chicago Top Ten
Time Out Chicago just named PASSING STRANGE as the #2 play of the 2011 Chicago season!
Kris Vire, theater editor, writes:
A singular matchup of artists made possible Bailiwick’s ballsy mounting of cult-fave rocker Stew’s uniquely personal portrait of the young man as an artist. By teaming her theater with hot soul outfit JC Brooks and the Uptown Sound and putting its charismatic frontman Jayson Brooks in Stew’s shoes as narrator, director Lili-Anne Brown found a way to make her production feel as lived-in as the original.
