Great news: Variety reports one of the best pieces of news to come out of this year’s Tribeca Film Festival: Spike Lee‘s film of Passing Strange, the Tony Award-winning Broadway rock musical, has been picked up by PBS. (Read more here and here.)
This fantastic news, plus the prospect of a limited theatrical run, will give Strange Freaks plenty of opportunity to recuit more people to their ranks.
It’s an awesome testament to the talents of the show’s creators, Stew and Heidi Rodewald, the amazing cast, and to Spike and his 40 Acres and a Mule Filmworks team. Congratulations!
