On today's episode I talk to playwright and composer Michael R.
Jackson. Originally from Detroit, Michael 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 received
its world premiere at Playwrights Horizons in New York City in
2019. A Strange Loop became an off-Broadway hit garnering Michael a
number of nominations including the Lucille Lortel and Drama Desk
Awards among many others. For his work Michael has also received a
Whiting Award for drama, a Helen Merrill Award for Playwriting, and
most recently, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
