Set to a bouncy Broadway beat with vibrant songs and cutting lyrics, this razor-sharp musical ‘would have your grandparents leaving the theatre humming. That’s if they hadn’t walked out before’ (New York Times ). It’s a timely, quirky, comically entertaining metafictional piece about identity, race and sexuality.

A Strange Loop will play a strictly limited 12-week summer season at the Barbican from 17 June to 9 September 2023.

What's the story of A Strange Loop?

It’s just your atypical musical about an overweight, black gay writer called Usher, working a day job he hates while writing his original musical!

This is a blistering, momentous new show that follows a young artist at war with a host of demons — not least of which, the punishing thoughts in his own head — in an attempt to capture and understand his own strange loop.
