Description

Stew and the Negro Problem, the Afro-Baroque cabaret ensemble is co-led by Heidi Rodewald, Stew’s long-time Obie Award winning collaborator. Compared in the same breath with Kurt Weill, Burt Bacharach and Jackie Gleason, Stew’s concert performances are coveted for their literate precision, sly humor, and deep emotional resonance, hovering between the divergent worlds of rock and theater.

Stew’s Broadway rock musical, Passing Strange, co-composed with Rodewald, earned the 2008 Tony Award for “Best Book of a Musical.” Passing Strange, the film, directed and co-produced by Spike Lee, premiered at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival to rave reviews, and airs on PBS’s Great Performances.
