Playwrights Horizons has extended its limited run of Michael R. Jackson’s new musical A Strange Loop , which opened to critical acclaim June 17. The musical follows a young artist at war with a host of demons—not least of which are the punishing thoughts in his own head—in an attempt to capture and understand his own strange loop. A Strange Loop began performances May 24 and will now continue through July 28 (performances were originally scheduled through July 21). A Strange Loop features book, music, and lyrics by 2017 Jonathan Larson Award and 2017 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award winner Jackson. The world premiere, presented in association with Page 73, is directed by Stephen Brackett with choreography by Raja Feather Kelly. Full story
