A STRANGE LOOP is a musical created by Michael R. Jackson that premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons and ran from May 24th to July 28th, 2019. The story follows Usher, a gay black writer who ushers 'The Lion King' on Broadway. He struggles with adapting to the world around him, how it differs from his own standpoint, and living up to the singer who shares his name. The musical slightly resembles the life of Jackson himself, as he shares a name with another notable black musician. A six-person all-black ensemble acts as his inner thoughts throughout his experience ghostwriting a new Tyler Perry movie.
The show has been nominated for various awards, including Outer Critics Circle Awards, Drama Desk Awards and Drama League Awards. The musical won Best Musical at the New York Drama Critic's Cirlce Awards, and won two Lucille Lortel awards: one for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Musical for Larry Owens as Usher and another for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Musical for John-Andrew Morrison.
