Art often fails. Writers discard first drafts (and second and third and fourth). Painters trash early sketches. And even when completed work does come into the world, some is transcendent, but much is hopelessly earthbound. Or so I believe. But Heidi and Stew, creators of the musical Passing Strange, disagree. "I don't think art is ever wrong," he says. She concurs, as long as the artist is true to herself. Three of us wrangled amicably, two of us sang wonderfully, at the Brooklyn Historical Society.
