Mia Chung joined Page 73 at our 2017 Summer Residency, where she spent a week developing Catch as Catch Can with Ken Rus Schmoll. Ken previously directed Page 73's productions of Grounded and Judy.

Michael R. Jackson is a member of Page 73's 2018 Interstate 73 writers group. Earlier this year, Page 73 provided a three-week workshop of A Strange Loop, in association with Musical Theatre Factory, directed by Stephen Brackett. Stephen previously directed Page 73's production of Ultimate Beauty Bible.


About Catch as Catch Can

The Phelans and the Lavecchias grew up in each other’s homes in a tight-knit working-class community, sharing the good times and the bad. As the younger generation grapples with complicated life choices, a shifting crisis is set in motion that threatens the bonds of this extended family. Using the device of character doubling in an unconventional way, Mia Chung gives fresh scrutiny to the roles we play in our families by creating a rich narrative performed by only three actors in a theatrical tour de force.


About A Strange Loop

Usher is a black, gay writer, working a day job he hates while writing his original musical: a piece about a black, gay writer, working a day job he hates while writing his original musical. Michael R. Jackson’s blistering, momentous new musical 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 break out of this strange loop.
