Arranged this visit as I specifically wanted to see this play after an NPR interview by Terry Gross.
Don’t you simply adore Terry Gross’ interviews?!..
A Strange Loop, has won the Pulitzer Prize, and Tony Award for Best Musical.
Written by Michael R. Jackson, it portrays his life as a black, homosexual man. Jackson wrote the book, play, music, and lyrics to this epic over the course of 18 years. It depicts his family life and their challenges accepting his orientation, and follows his life in New York City where he studied and graduated from New York University.
This moving play is both dramatic, and comedic, with music that will capture your soul. Jackson’s work is one you will never forget, and is a must see. The play has been extended beyond September.
If you have the chance take it in, and open your heart to this amazing work.
After the play the entire cast came out to the street to greet the audience.
What a phenomenal gesture.
