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!
PRAISE FOR A STRANGE LOOP
"Radiant. Explosively funny. A roller coaster. An exhilarating cocktail of hilarious lyrical complexity." — Time Out New York
"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, Vogue
"To sit up there and see my life onstage, when everybody said that my story wasn't valid — to see that up there, to see it so brave, and to see it so bold. To see it so truthful, so complicated, so honest, and so unapologetic, has been one of the most wonderful nights for me in the theater. I am so happy to say that." — Billy Porter
"Joyously original and profane and brilliant, the cast is incredible . . . . It made me want to go home and write. I don't have a better compliment than that." — Lin-Manuel Miranda
