Speaking of diversity and new plays, "Passing Strange" was released on Netflix this week. I loved it as a show -- saw it at Joe's Pub, (part of it) at the Obies, and the Belasco (where I also second acted it). It survived the transition to film quite well.
The music, by Stew and Heidi Rodewald, is still good. The performances are all out energy, and fun. Daniel Breaker is excellent and Stew is as much of a trip as ever. It's not live but Spike Lee served the material well when capturing it.
