A Strange Loop on Broadway Tickets

Lyceum Theatre

Michael R. Jackson’s Pulitzer Prize-winning musical is a hilarious, straight-shooting look into the mind of a young, Black, queer artist.

A bold new American musical

Michael R. Jackson’s award-winning, metafictional musical A Strange Loop bursts onto Broadway, taking audiences on an exhilarating journey through the mind of an aspiring artist.

Usher - who works as an usher at The Lion King - is a Black, queer writer, writing a musical about a Black queer writer. The writer in his musical is also writing a musical about a Black queer writer. As he battles to break away from his own self-perception, Usher’s internal monologue is brought to life by a hilarious ensemble in this blisteringly funny new Great American Musical.

A Strange Loop is the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical from Michael R. Jackson, which first premiered Off-Broadway at Playwrights Horizons. Jackson wrote the book, music and lyrics for his metafictional show, which addresses themes of race, sexuality and identity through the creative process of one artist.

On Broadway, A Strange Loop is directed by Stephen Brackett and choreographed by Raja Feather Kelly.

Delve into the mind of a young creative and discover an exciting new approach to the musical genre with A Strange Loop tickets.
