WINNER! EVERY BEST MUSICAL AWARD IN NEW YORK

The ground-breaking and critically acclaimed winner of every ‘Best Musical’ award on Broadway, and the Pulitzer Prize, bursts onto the stage for a limited engagement, direct from Broadway.

Hell-bent on breaking free of his own self-perception, Usher, a young, gay, Black writer who hates his day job, writes a musical about a young, gay, Black writer who’s writing a musical about a young, gay, Black writer...a strange loop. Usher grapples with desires, identity, and instincts he both loves and loathes, all brought to life on stage by a hilarious, straight-talking ensemble.

Nominated for 11 Tony Awards, Michael R. Jackson’s blisteringly funny, “audacious and uproarious” (The Guardian) show is a heartfelt and thought-provoking masterwork that uses humor and honesty to explore themes around race and sexuality.

It made me want to go home and write. I don’t have a better compliment than that.

Brilliant. Moving. Joyous. Original. The best original musical on Broadway.

Above and beyond brilliant! An emotional, cultural revolution.

A soul-baring, biting, brilliant, hilarious musical. One of the most incredible things I’ve ever seen in the theatre.
