The theater play MJ is based on a novel written by Lynn Nottage, who has won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama twice, as well as a mix of Michael Jackson's renowned tunes. This musical based on the "King of Pop" has been performed on Broadway to huge applause. The musical's score will include 25 of Michael Jackson's most famous songs, such as "Beat It," "Billie Jean," and "Thriller." The global tour that Michael Jackson undertook in 1992 under the moniker "Dangerous" is used as the musical’s main story to give audiences an in-depth look at Jackson's creative efforts and all the major events that occurred during his career, starting with his time in The Jackson 5 and proceeding through his solo success. This production has been nominated for a remarkable ten Tony Awards, including Best Musical and Leading Actor in a Musical for Myles Frost, who is making his Broadway breakthrough as the pop singer in this show. Christopher Wheeldon was also considered for a Tony Award in both the director and choreography categories.
Because the screenplay is so impressive and the set design is a marvel to behold, there is a high likelihood that tickets will sell out fast. You honestly only have this one opportunity to get your seat before someone else gets it. Get yours, right here.
