When MJ the Musical first premiered on Broadway, Michael Jackson fans were absolutely delighted. This is officially the most significant production of an onstage musical based on the pop star’s life, and it has been known to do a superb job of commemorating the legacy Jackson left behind. No, it’s not your ordinary jukebox musical. Unlike other stage musical adaptations, MJ is based on the real-life events of the mega pop star who took over the world with his unprecedented hits. It is officially the inaugural of its kind!
Fans are guaranteed not to be disappointed with Lynn Nottage’s portrayal on Michael Jackson’s life. Meanwhile, Christopher Wheeldon's excellent choreography gives the pop star’s legendary dance moves a remarkably creative approach. Moreover, viewers will also have a magnificent time with the musical’s variety of Michael Jackson’s hits – ranging from “Beat It,” “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough,” “Human Nature,” “Thriller,” “Man in the Mirror,” and many more. The show also didn’t forget Jackson’s earlier hits, as the musical features a Jackson 5 mix.
The Hollywood Reporter gave outstanding marks to the Broadway production of MJ. “MJ, like its subject, is captivating and hard to shake. The musical takes audiences through Jackson's life and catalog with astonishing ease, expertly chronicling major milestones.”
Meanwhile, the Washington Post gave credit to the writer Nottage and choreographer Wheeldon for their flawless work. “That sordid history would not seem to have foretold a jukebox musical devoted to the upside of Jackson's genius - and certainly not by artists of the caliber of two-time Pulitzer winner Nottage ("Ruined," "Sweat") and the celebrated ballet world fixture Wheeldon. The creative team's diligent work has resulted in a gripping, adrenaline rush of a show.”
