If you've been reading this blog for more than a few weeks you already know that I was high last year on Passing Strange when it played downtown at The Public. I couldn't resist the show's first Broadway preview, hoping for the best but secretly worried that the show might get lost in a big house on a proscenium stage. I needn't have worried about that - the show fits easily into its new midtown home - but at first preview the show had a fresh round of issues thanks to revisions in the second act. By the time you read this, I've no doubt that at least some of them will have been fixed, so there's no good reason for me to say anything more about them than that. Instead, I'm going to reiterate that I'm rooting for this very special show to come together by the time it opens and I'm going to see it again in a couple of weeks when the show is frozen. More then.
