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," Firehouse is pleased to produce the RVA premiere of this ground-breaking rock and roll musical.
