Oct 20–21, 2012
Stew, the Tony Award-winning creator and star of Broadway’s rock musical "Passing Strange" and his band perform a new song cycle inspired by Stew and collaborator Heidi Rodewald’s experiences in and perspectives about Chicago. The work was developed during a summer MCA Stage residency and is being performed along with songs from their 2012 album, Making It. Stew’s concerts limbo between rock show and theater and the musical influences range from funk, baroque ’60s pop, lounge music, ’80s synth pop, classic Tin Pan Alley, and psychedelic rock.
