Get ready to moonwalk your way to the Prince Edward Theatre for MJ the Musical! MJ the Musical tickets are available on London Theatre now.
This smash hit musical based on the thrilling story of legendary pop star Michael Jackson comes straight from Broadway, featuring Myles Frost in his West End debut. Frost made his Broadway debut and won the Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for transforming into the late King of Pop, making him the youngest solo recipient of the award in history.
MJ the Musical centres around rehearsals for Michael Jackson’s 1992 Dangerous World Tour. When an MTV camera crew arrives to interview Jackson for a documentary, the singer gradually opens up about his turbulent backstory and career. His memories come to life with some of his most famous songs, including “Billie Jean,” “Beat It,” “Thriller,” and “Smooth Criminal,” and a book by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage.
This production provides a unique look into the unseen elements — including his family relationships, phenomenal talent, and creative imagination — that inspired Jackson’s singular approach to music. As on Broadway, Christopher Wheeldon OBE directs and choreographs MJ in London. He won a Tony Award for his choreography, which he co-created with Rich and Tone Talauega, two of Jackson’s former backup dancers and collaborators. They helped Wheeldon to ensure the choreography in the show replicated the pop star’s signature style.
Elizabeth Taylor named Michael Jackson The King of Pop at the 1989 Soul Train Awards, and it is fair to say that he is an artist like no other. With over 350 million records sold worldwide, Jackson has earned himself spots in the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the Vocal Group Hall of Fame, and the Rhythm and Blues Music Hall of Fame. He is also the only music artist in the Dance Hall of Fame.
