MJ ON BROADWAY

Wanna be startin’ somethin’? How about a run on Broadway? Previews have begun for MJ The Musical at Broadway’s Neil Simon Theatre, with opening night scheduled for 2/1. Delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic, MJ was set to open in July 2020 and is finally lifting the curtain a year and a half later.

Written by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage and directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, the show centers on the creation of Jackson’s 1992 Dangerous World Tour. We're told the first preview earned multiple standing ovations.

Myles Frost, who appeared in the 2019 film All In and performed songs for the Netflix comedy series Family Reunion, is making his Broadway debut as Michael Jackson in the musical, produced by Lia Vollack, John Branca and John McClainJason Michael Webb and David Holcenberg handled the music. Marty Bandier, Doug Morris and Sony Music are among those who've invested in the production.
