Passing Strange

I am working at the Belasco Theater today where they are showing Passing Strange. I didn't know what to expect going in except that it had loud music. The show is amazing and moving and intelligent and sensitive and relevant and amazing. It's an autobiographical rock opera about the narrator Stew and his life experiences.

What truly amazes me is how much Stew sounds like the guy who sings "I'm Just a Bill", a cartoon from Schoolhouse Rock. I'll do some more research and see if it's the same guy. I'm pretty sure it's not but Stew's voice is completely familiar and comfortable.
