The Story

The protagonist is a young black queer man named Usher - played by Jaquel Spivey - who works as an usher at The Lion King's Broadway musical. He’s not happy with his job and he wants to be a musical theater writer himself. And the musical that he wants to write is about a black queer man writing about a black queer man writing about a black queer man, and it goes on. Now you know where it gets its name from.But it’s not going to be easy for him, not only because opportunities for people like him are limited, but also because he’s unable to escape his own limiting thoughts. It’s his internal monologues that make up the crux of most songs in the musical and are performed by an all-black, all-queer ensemble.He does manage to get a job offer to ghostwrite for Tyler Perry, which he reluctantly accepts. But will it help him solve his issues? Will it help him win approval from his family? Will it help him improve his relationship with his body and sexuality? Book A Strange Loop tickets to find out.
