THE 2020 PULITZER PRIZE-WINNER ABOUT A BLACK, QUEER WRITER WRITING HIS ORIGINAL MUSICAL… ABOUT A BLACK, QUEER WRITER WRITING HIS ORIGINAL MUSICAL.
Usher is a Black queer writer working a job he hates while writing his original musical… about a Black queer writer working a job he hates while writing his original musical. Michael R. Jackson’s blistering, mind-blowing, Pulitzer Prize-winning new musical follows a young artist at war with a host of demons — including the punishing thoughts in his head — in an attempt to capture and understand his own strange loop.
