A Modern Classic
24 March 2014 | by (Oakland, CA) – See all my reviews

I stumbled on this as part of the 'Showtime' cable offering in 2014. The description was: "A young African-American travels to Europe on a journey of self-discovery in order to explore music and become a successful artist" Seriously.

Not: "The Tony award winning Broadway musical that uses styles from Gospel to Punk Rock to illustrate the globe-trotting soul searching journey of a young man searching for "The Real" of life. Directed by Spike Lee and featuring the music of Mark Stewart ('The Negro Problem')." I am a huge fan of 'The Negro Problem' and recognized Mark Stewart's voice instantly. I would rate this up with 'Jesus Christ Superstar' as an epic musical.

See it.
