Michael R. Jackson

Langue disponible : anglais
A composer, lyricist, and playwright, Michael R. Jackson began collaborating on musical theater projects as a student as New York University in the mid-2000s. The year 2019 saw the world premiere of his own musical, A Strange Loop, and the accompanying cast album release. Raised in Detroit, Jackson attended the city's Cass Technical High School, where playwright/actress Dominique Morisseau was a classmate. He went on to earn both a B.F.A. in playwriting and an M.F.A. in Musical Theatre Writing from the NYU Tisch School of the Arts. Among his earliest works was the book and lyrics for the musical Only Children, a collaboration with composer Rachel Peters. A 2016-2017 Dramatist Guild fellow, in 2017 Jackson was awarded the Jonathan Larson Grant, a Lincoln Center Emerging Artist Award, and the ASCAP Foundation Harold Adamson Lyric Award. He won a Whiting Award for drama in March 2019. Though not officially autobiographical, his musical A Strange Loop concerns a young Black gay writer as he juggles trying to compose a musical and a day job he despises. With book, music, and lyrics by Jackson, it opened off-Broadway in June 2019. That same year, Teeth, a collaboration with composer Anna K. Jacobs and adaptation of the 2007 indie horror film, appeared at the National Alliance for Musical Theatre's Festival of New Musicals.
