A Strange Loop is a musical with book, music and lyrics by Michael R. Jackson.
The musical is about Usher, so named because of his day-job as an usher for The Lion King on Broadway, an overweight, gay, black writer as he tries to navigate the heteronormative white world. He remarks that he thinks he'll never be as successful as the singer who shares his name, something he has in common with the writer of this musical. He is backed by a six-person all-black ensemble who voice his inner thoughts as he begrudgingly ghost writes a new Tyler Perry movie.
