Filmmaker Spike Lee has been called in to boost ticket sales for Broadway musical PASSING STRANGE, by shooting the show for TV.
The Oscar-nominated director will film three different performances of the play to create the movie, which will air on a U.S. cable network later this year (08).
Despite rave reviews and a win at the recent Tony Awards, Passing Strange - about a young black musician who travels to Europe to find himself - has suffered at the box office since opening Spring last year (07).
