With A Strange Loop winning the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, revisit the other productions that have earned the prize in the last 25 years.

As previously announced, Michael R. Jackson has been named winner of the 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for his musical A Strange Loop. The prize, celebrated with a $15,000 award, is presented annually to the distinguished play by an American author, preferably original in its source and dealing with American life.

A Strange Loop made its world premiere last year at Off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons. It recently earned six Drama Desk Award nominations and won two Lucille Lortel Awards (for actors Larry Owens and John-Andrew Morrison).

The semi-autobiographical piece is the 10th musical to receive the distinction, following Hamilton, Next to Normal, Rent, Sunday in the Park With George, A Chorus Line, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Fiorello!, South Pacific, and Of Thee I Sing.

In honor of the prize, look back at the last 25 years of shows that have been earned the honor.
