I went to see the play / musical Passing Strange at the Berkeley Rep. My aim in going was to support my incredibly talented, brilliant and beautiful friend Eisa Davis, who plays the role of the Mother in the story. However, I was literally blown away by how fantastic the show is. Written by the amazingly talented singer/playwrite/musician, Stew, the play tells the story of a young man as he discovers himself. The story is told through some great songs, hilarious dialouge, and contemplative narrative from Stew. I laughed so hard that I had to keep wiping back tears. Passing Strange is one of the best plays I've seen in a while. If you have the chance to see it, don't miss the opportunity!
