Program Alum Michael R. Jackson Opens New Musical at Second Stage

Thursday, Mar 16, 2023


Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program alum Michael R. Jackson (cycle 14) will open his new musical WHITE GIRL IN DANGER at Second Stage this spring.

Tune in to the epic and viciously funny new musical WHITE GIRL IN DANGER from Michael R. Jackson, the Tony Award ® and Pulitzer Prize winning creator of A STRANGE LOOP (2022 Tony Award Winner for Best Musical). The show, originally developed at NYC's Vineyard Theatre, is a fever dream mashup of classic daytime and primetime soap operas, Lifetime movies, and red-hot melodrama. The citizens of the soap opera town Allwhite face high-stakes drama and intrigue all the days of their lives. But Keesha Gibbs and the other Blackgrounds have been relegated to backburner stories of slavery and police violence for all of theirs. Keesha is determined to step out of the Blackground and into the center of Allwhite’s juiciest stories. Can Keesha handle the Allwhite attention—especially from the Allwhite Killer on the loose? What role do the other Blackgrounds play in Keesha’s Allwhite schemes? And just whose story is this anyway? Find out at WHITE GIRL IN DANGER.
