The Total Bent at the Public Theatre through June 19

Gospel and rock n' roll take hold of the Public Theatre with Stew and Heidi Rodewald's (of Passing Strange) new breakout musical, The Total Bent. "When a British record producer arrives in Montgomery, Alabama to hook Marty Roy, a young black musical prodigy, he launches us back into Marty’s tumultuous upbringing.  The son of a gospel star and self-proclaimed healer, Marty spent his childhood writing the songs that have made his charismatic father famous.  But in a nation on the verge of social upheaval, with the rising heat from the street guiding his pen, Marty finds himself at odds with his spiritually forceful father as he strives to create a masterpiece that will change America— no matter the cost."
