Rousuck's Review: "A Strange Loop" at DC's Woolly Mammoth Theatre
It's time for another visit from Midday theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck, who joins Tom this week with her review of A Strange Loop, playwright Michael R. Jackson's Pulitzer Prize-winning 2019 musical that's getting a new production at Woolly Mammoth Theater Company in Washington, D.C.
The first musical written (book, music and lyrics) by Jackson, a gay Black playwright, A Strange Loop tells the story of a gay Black playwright struggling to write his first musical... about a gay Black playwright struggling to write his first musical...
Music direction is by Rona Siddiqui, with choreography by Raja Feather Kelly. Stephen Brackett directs the cast, featuring James Jackson Jr., Jason Veasey, John-Michael Lyles, Jaquel Spivey, L Morgan Lee, John-Andrew Morrison and Antwayn Hopper.
A Strange Loop is produced by Woolly Mammoth Theater Company in association with Playwrights Horizons and Page 73 Productions. The musical continues at Woolly Mammoth through January 9, 2022.
