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 new musical follows a young artist at war with a host of demons — including the punishing thoughts in his own head — in an attempt to capture and understand his own strange loop.
