Michael R. Jackson —"Writing Unapologetically Black and Queer" (Episode 4)



“I think diversity in musical theatre means acknowledging there is an entire jewel with endless facets of points of views that need to be represented at any given time onstage and off the stage.”


We sit down with composer-lyricist Michael R. Jackson (2016-2017 Dramatist Guild Fellow, 2017 Jonathan Larson Grant Winner, 2017 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist, and a recently announced Lincoln Center Theater Writer in Residence!) to discuss how we define diversity in musical theatre, the purpose of revivals, and the empathy that comes with a night at the theatre.
