On a new episode of The Jennifer Hudson show, Tony Award-winning playwright of "A Strange Loop," Michael R. Jackson, sat down with Hudson, who achieved the rarified EGOT status for producing the Broadway musical.

During the interview, the cast of "A Strange Loop" surprised Hudson with a video message, as Jackson and Hudson announced that they will collaborate on a reimagined version of the musical's song "Boundaries" as a bonus track on the "A Strange Loop" cast album.

"It's a song from the show, I did a little lyrical tweak for her," Jackson revealed. "I'm so grateful, Jennifer is like one of the voices of the angels, I loved it ever since I first heard her."

In another segment, Jackson joked about not writing a speech for the Tonys and shared the musical's touching impact on members of the LGBTQ community.
