MJ the Musical is a fascinating exploration into the genius of Michael Jackson, also known as: the King of Pop. Set around his Dangerous World Tour in the 1990s, the show gives us a peak behind the curtain to witness the mesmerising creative process behind his greatest hits. Examining both his creative drive and signature choreography, MJ gives its audience a previously unseen and in-depth look at one of history’s greatest musicians.
This production features an extensive catalogue of Michael Jackson’s music, with a setlist of over 25 songs. Including hits like ‘Blilie Jean’, ‘Beat It’, and ‘Thriller’, audiences are given the opportunity to relive some of the most celebrated music of the 20th Century. It’s an incredible experience, and it really does feel as if you are watching the legend himself live in concert!
MJ first debuted on Broadway in 2022, where it has been a major commercial success. The show has broken numerous box office records, becoming the most successful musical to have ever played at the Neil Simon Theatre in New York City. The show is often sold out on the Great White Way, and it shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. It is likely to have similar success in the West End, with tickets already selling fast ahead of its 2024 debut.
In the lead role of Michael Jackson is Myles Frost, who previously originated the role on Broadway. Frost’s life-like portrayal of the singer received rave reviews, and he ultimately received a Tony Award in recognition of his outstanding performance.
