A Strange Loop
Produced in association with Page 73
These are my memories / Of one lone black gay boy I knew who chose to turn his back on the Lord.
Usher is a black, gay writer, working a day job he hates while writing his original musical: a piece about a black, gay writer, working a day job he hates while writing his original musical. Michael R. Jackson’s blistering, momentous new musical follows a young artist at war with a host of demons — not least of which, the punishing thoughts in his own head — in an attempt to break out of this strange loop.
