Stew & The Negro Problem perform Selections from Passing Strange & Brooklyn Omnibus

Stew & The Negro Problem, along with special guests, come careening back into Brooklyn with highlights from their groundbreaking, Tony award-winning musical Passing Strange. Expect a super-rare airing of deep cuts from their BAM-commissioned Brooklyn Omnibus and selections they wrote for Spike Lee’s TV series, She's Gotta Have It. This fall, Stew also teaches "Singer + Song = Story" at Harvard's School of Theater, Dance & Media—a course he says is "charged with the modest task of re-inventing theater.”

Dope Sagittarius, brainchild of New Yorker Luqman Brown, will perform an opening set of avant-garde pop-rock, funk and reggae.


The safety of our audiences, staff, and artistic community is our top priority. All guests must show proof of vaccination at the entry points and masks must be worn at all times. Please visit BAM’s safety protocol page for the most up-to-date information.
