The musical MJ is based on a memoir written by Lynn Nottage, who has won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama twice, as well as a selection of Michael Jackson's famous tunes. This show based on the "King of Pop" has been performed on Broadway to huge applause. The musical's score will contain 25 of Michael Jackson's most famous songs, such as "Beat It," "Billie Jean," and "Thriller." The global tour that Michael Jackson conducted in 1992 under the moniker "Dangerous" is used as the musical’s main story to give an in-depth look at Jackson's artistic efforts and all the major events that occurred during his career, starting with his time in The Jackson 5 and moving through his solo success. This production has been nominated for a stunning ten Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Leading Actor in a Musical for Myles Frost, who is making his Broadway debut as the pop singer in this show.
