A Strange Loop (London, Barbican Theatre, 2023) | Playbill

A Strange Loop



Michael R. Jackson’s blisteringly funny masterwork 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.
