Passing Through

Music and Lyrics by Brett Ryback
Book by Eric Ulloa
Based on the Work "Walking to Listen" by Andrew Forsthoefel
Choreographed by Marcos Santana
Directed by Igor Goldin

Set amidst the rich sounds and diverse tapestry of the American landscape, Passing Through tells the incredible true story of a young man who journeys on foot from Pennsylvania to California, collecting stories as he goes. But when his trek brings to light an unresolved family crisis, he must use the lessons he’s gathered to finally confront his past. Don’t miss the musical that celebrates America and the power of what can happen when we open ourselves up to a stranger.
