The world premiere of Michael R. Jackson’s A Strange Loop begins at Playwrights Horizons May 24. The musical follows a young artist at war with a host of demons—not least of which are the punishing thoughts in his own head—in an attempt to capture and understand his own strange loop.
A Strange Loop features a book, music, and lyrics by 2017 Jonathan Larson Award and 2017 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award winner Jackson. The world premiere, presented in association with Page 73, is directed by Stephen Brackett with choreography by Raja Feather Kelly.
Performances are currently scheduled through July 7 at Playwrights.
