St. Ann’s Warehouse is commissioning Making It, a new concert presentation by Passing Strange creators, Stew and Heidi Rodewald. A multi-media, rock show collage of song, text, and video, the show traces the unlikely careers of Stew and Heidi from the dive rock clubs of Hollywood to the footlights of Broadway — with Stew as your helpful guide to Making It.

Are you Making It?
What are you making?
And how are you Making It?
When do you know you’ve made it?
And are you having fun Making It?
Or are you just barely Making It?

Neither Stew nor Heidi was able to answer any of these questions.

That­’s why they made this show.

Making It was commissioned through Meet The Composer Commissioning Music/USA, which is made possible by generous support from the Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust, the Ford Foundation, the Francis Goelet Charitable Lead Trusts, New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, New York State Council on the Arts, the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and The Helen F. Whitaker Fund.
