“Michael R. Jackson is part of an extraordinary generation of ferociously talented Black playwrights that is coming into its own and reshaping the theatrical landscape. What makes it so powerful, and has allowed it to connect with such a diverse audience, is not an attempt to find ‘our common humanity’ but an insistence on speaking its own idiosyncratic truth.”

- Adam Green of Vogue

About A Strange Loop

ABOUT

A STRANGE LOOP

Meet Usher: a Black, queer writer writing a musical about a Black, queer writer writing a musical about a Black, queer writer…

Michael R. Jackson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning, blisteringly funny masterwork exposes the heart and soul of a young artist grappling with desires, identity, and instincts he both loves and loathes. Hell-bent on breaking free of his own self-perception, Usher wrestles with the thoughts in his head, brought to life onstage by a hilarious, straight-shooting ensemble. Bold and heartfelt in its truth-telling, A Strange Loop is the big, Black, and queer-ass Great American Musical for all!
