​This innovative new musical exploded on Broadway in 2008 winning a Drama Desk Award, a New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, two Obies, 7 Tony nominations, and received the Tony for Best Book of a Musical. PASSING STRANGE is like no other musical you’ve ever experienced. The New York Times said it “defies generic categories.”

Part rock and roll biography, part coming-of-age-story replete with youthful angst and discovery, part traditional book musical “bursting at the seams with melodic songs,” part examination of race, Firehouse is pleased to produce the RVA premiere of this ground-breaking rock and roll musical.
