Michael R. Jackson has been running his mouth since God was a baby. If it’s not one thing, it’s another. If it’s not his father, it’s his mother. Boys. Politics. Blackness. Queerness. Broadway. Off-Broadway. Good times and bum times, he’s seen them all and is stepping forward to blow off some steam, sing a few tunes, and generally get into it in advance of the spring world premiere of his musical A Strange Loop at Playwrights Horizons, co-produced by Page 73 Productions.
Michael R. Jackson holds a BFA and MFA in playwriting and Musical Theatre Writing from the NYU Tisch School of the Arts. He wrote book, music, and lyrics for the musicals White Girl In Danger and A Strange Loop (which will receive its world premiere at Playwrights Horizons Theatre in May of 2019). He has received a 2017 Jonathan Larson Grant, a 2017 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award, a 2017 ASCAP Foundation Harold Adamson Award, a 2016/2017 Dramatist Guild fellowship, and was the 2017 Williamstown Theatre Festival Playwright-In- Residence. He has commissions from Grove Entertainment, Barbara Whitman Productions, and LCT3.
