Winner! 2020 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and 2022 Tony Award for Best Musical 

Michael R. Jackson’s blisteringly funny masterwork "A STRANGE LOOP" exposes the heart and soul of a young artist grappling with desires, identity, and instincts he both loves and loathes. 

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

Usher wrestles with the thoughts in his head in an attempt to capture and understand his own "STRANGE LOOP."
