The world premiere of Michael R. Jackson’s A Strange Loop opens at Playwrights Horizons June 17 after beginning performances May 24. The new musical explores the thoughts of Usher, a Black, queer writer working a job he hates while writing his original musical: a piece about a Black, queer composer working a job he hates while writing his original musical.

A Strange Loop features a book, music, and lyrics by Jackson (2017 Jonathan Larson Award and 2017 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award winner), direction by Be More Chill’s Stephen Brackett, and choreography by Raja Feather Kelly.
