This is the second show of Jackson's that has had repeated criticisms of sound design and an inability to understand the lyrics. I, too, experienced these issues at both shows. At what point do we acknowledge that maybe it's the writing that is making things hard to hear/understand and that this is something that he needs to work on? FWIW, I really liked A Strange Loop and thought White Girl was interesting but needs work. I like what Jackson has to say and he is an interesting new voice in theater. But he maybe needs a refresher on how to write for singers so they can be understood.
