Thriller Live extends to 9 Jan 2011 at Lyric Theatre
Thriller Live, featuring the songs of Michael Jackson & The Jackson 5, has extended 4 months to Sunday 9 Jan 2011 at the Lyric Theatre. (Note: Christmas dates 20 Dec to 3 Jan are not on sale yet!)
The show opened at the Lyric Theatre, Shaftesbury Ave, on 21 Jan 2009, following previews from 2 Jan 2009, to generally good notices from the popular press: THE GUARDIAN says, "It's cute, kicking and retro." THE STAGE says, "Some of the set pieces, particularly the Billie Jean/Thriller/Bad set are, quite literally, thrilling." THE EVENING STANDARD says, "Thrilling, certainly, but empty, too." THE DAILY TELEGRAPH says, "A glitzy concert of song and dance...a great night out." THE DAILY EXPRESS says, "A hugely enjoyable, gloriously upbeart, high energy show." THE INDEPENDENT says, "Immensely enjoyable. "
The show, originally conceived and created by Adrian Grant, is directed by Gary Lloyd.
Unlike other West End productions, Thriller - Live is not a rigid book musical with set songs, but is a constantly evolving music concert celebration.
