"PASSING STRANGE" IS , WELL, STRANGE! IT'S OFF-BROADWAY IN TYPE--A musical, a satire, a comedy rock-rap-song of the "Jesus Christ Superstar" genre and just as socio-politically serious and important to the conjecture that will bend societies and worlds. "Passing" is to be expected and was expected by this viewer. I can feel the culture roaring for change and not

Village Voice
Passing Strange conjures a rare kind of theatrical magic with its emotionally raw, frequently euphoric portrait of the artist as a young man. Full Review
A.O. Scott
The New York Times
A show not simply preserved by Mr. Lee's camera, but brought, somehow, to its fullest, strangest, most electrifying realization. Full Review
David Edelstein
New York Magazine
The cutting is hyperkinetic, yet Lee is always in synch with the cast's phenomenal energy. He's in their thrall--and so are we. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
This first-rate multicamera transcript of a terrific show should delight musical fans (and many who think they aren't) as a niche broadcast item. Full Review
Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News
The beginning is awkwardly earnest, but the play matures considerably while retaining its youthful energy and enthusiasm Full Review
