World Premiere

Songs & Notions by Stew & Heidi Rodewald

Performed by The Negro Problem

"Stew has a razor-sharp literary eye and a wicked sense of humor."
—Chicago Sun-Times

Stew, the Tony Award-winning creator and star of Broadway's Passing Strange, joins his band The Negro Problem and co-creator Heidi Rodewald for an irreverent, genre-bending song cycle that considers what it means to call Brooklyn home. With a swaggering score and a raw, unvarnished lyricism, Brooklyn OMNIBUS refracts the Kings County experience through a surreal prism of disparate characters, all living in a nomadic place where the neighborhood is a tribe, the self is an ever-changing storefront, and home is an elusive refuge resting somewhere between.

Produced by BAM
Commissioned by BAM for the 2010 Next Wave Festival.
