I’ll be at the new BRIC House tonight to check out Stew’s Listening Party, a work-in-progress show.
Interestingly, this was originally billed as Stew and Heidi’s Listening Party, and was supposed to be a collaboration with his longtime collaborator Heidi Rodewald. But her name has disappeared from the program.
I haven’t heard reports from last night’s premiere, but I’m sure it was a trip. I’m booked at the7:30 pm show, which originally was scheduled to he the second andfinal gig. However, another show was added at 10 pm.
So if you got shut out before, you may be able to get tickets for tonight’s late
show by tapping here.
I’ll try to get take some photos and post them here later.
Heidi Rodewald and Stew, creators of Broadway’s Passing Strange, are presenting a Brooklyn house party in November to share their works in progress.
Creators of Passing Strange and collaborators in The Negro Problem join the inaugural season at BRIC House
BRIC (Brooklyn Information and Culture), the organization behind the great Celebrate Brooklyn! concert series, is opening the BRIC Arts | Media House to provide a permanent stage for new and established artists to explore their work.
BRIC House, at 647 Fulton Street, next door to the BAM Harvey Theater, formally opens Oct. 3. And it already has a great lineup scheduled, including two-nights of creative mashups from Tony and OBIE Award winner Stew and longtime collaborator and OBIE Award winner Heidi Rodewald.
They’re the people behind Broadway’s Passing Strange and the core members of the band The Negro Problem.
In two performances in November, the pair will unveil a show that includes pieces of several projects they have in development, including three musicals, a video-art work, two song-cycles and poems and songs that likely will show up on their next record in some form.
