Great Performances: Passing Strange (PBS, Jan. 13, nine p.m. ET, check local listings). Spike Lee’s performance film-documentary of the Broadway production of Stew’s 2007 rock musical about the travails of a middle-class black bohemian makes its broadcast debut this month. The music is a bit plain-sounding, but the book and lyrics offer a revealing glimpse of a side of black life in America that rarely gets talked about, much less sung about. Annie Dorsen’s staging is full of punch, and Lee has filmed the show with tremendous verve (TT).
