The production will play a 6 week engagement from November 22nd, 2021 through January 2nd, 2022 at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in DC.
For anyone that may not know of A STRANGE LOOP, the musical is written by Michael R. Jackson inspired by his own personal experiences. It tells the story of a young average overweight, gay, black artist named “Usher” (working as an Usher) 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.
The show had a triumphant sold out World Premiere Off-Broadway run at Playwrights Horizons in the Spring of 2019. It was well praised by critics and Theatergoers everywhere.
It also became only the 10th Musical ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
No word has been said on when the show will hit the Big Apple. Stay tuned.
Who is excited?!!
