A piece of theater that moves more like a troubadour’s ballad than a rock musical, Studio Theatre’s production of Passing Strange defies easy classification every chance it gets. Like an amazing concept album or a club show you talk about for years, Passing Strange has a life of its own. To its disservice, Studio’s 2ndStage simply doesn’t give it enough room to truly take shape. The space’s close quarters don’t suit the energy of its outstanding live band. Closes this Sunday, Aug. 22. Studio Theatre’s 2ndStage, 14th & P Streets NW. Tickets are $38. Call 202-332-3300 or visit studiotheatre.org.
