Passing Strange opens April 25th at the Mixed Blood Theatre.  Tickets are available for purchase but you can also see this show for FREE with their Radical Hospitality program.  The show runs through May 11, 2014.

With disparate styles that range from ‘60’s Europop to ‘70’s punk to ‘80’s electronica to gospel, soul, and funk to musical theatre and with a nod to James Brown, this 2008 Tony Award winner is a play within a rock concert. The show follows an emerging African American musician from his garage-band days in Los Angeles to coffeehouses in Amsterdam, where he indulges in a rock ’n’ roll life, and from there to Berlin, where he falls in with a group of political and aesthetic radicals. It is a portrait of an artist attempting to break free of his roots, only to discover he can’t move on without a reconciliation with his past.

Passing Strange dares in a playful way to honor those big questions that have set adolescent souls yearning for centuries: how to discover and be true to your convictions, how to live a meaningful life and still pay the bills, how to find the understanding you need without throwing away the love you’re offered.

Dive

Inspired by a curiosity about our country’s careless habit of sending food straight to landfills, the multi- award-winning documentary DIVE! follows filmmaker Jeremy Seifert and friends as they dumpster dive in the back alleys and gated garbage receptacles of Los Angeles’ supermarkets. In the process, they salvage thousands of dollars’ worth of good, edible food – resulting in an inspiring documentary that is equal parts entertainment, guerrilla journalism and call to action.

There will also be a post screening Q&A.
