The name says it all. Beautifully loopy, this is the story of a black, queer, struggling artist who is trying to write a musical about a black, queer, struggling artist who is trying to write a musical… Join Usher in his journey of self discovery where he learns to love and loathe and believe and doubt all in the form of, of course, song and dance.

why watch a strange loop

This Pulitzer Prize-winning musical is every bit true to its title. Usher is a young artist who is queer and also black. The complexity of identity gets to him and the dilemma of figuring out who he really is, is brilliantly displayed in the form of his thoughts as songs in this musical. As a black man, he expected to have certain desires and instincts and as a queer man, society has already decided who Usher should be. However, when these two different identities are combined, we get a young man who is torn between what the people think and his intrusive thoughts.

In order to make sense of all of this, Usher decides to write a musical about a young artist who is also black, and queer, and is writing a musical exactly like himself. He hopes that he will be able to give proper meaning to the word “identity” but in the end, he is left with one last question, perhaps the biggest of them all, “Is identity just an illusion?”
