Equity actor for the roles of USHER: Black. Mid-20s. A self-described “young overweight- to-obese homosexual and/or gay and/or queer, cisgender male, able-bodied university- and-graduate-school educated, musical theater writing, Disney ushering, broke-ass middle-class far left-leaning black-identified and classified American descendant of slaves full of self-conscious femme energy and who thinks he’s probably a vers bottom but not totally certain of that obsessing over the latest draft of his self-referential musical ‘A Strange Loop.'” Extremely self-aware and extremely insecure with a warm but deeply ironic sense of humor. He wears his intelligence on his sleeve and in his writing. An usher by night, musical theater writer by day. Tenor Eb3-B4.
