MJ the Musical

The Producers Lia Vollack Productions and The Michael Jackson Estate have announced that the multi-Tony Award winning Broadway musical MJ will make its way to London’s theatreland, landing in the West End in 2024 at the Prince Edward Theatre. This is the second Jackson musical, this time revealing the background to the artist’s extraordinary Dangerous World Tour in 1992. MJ will be directed and choreographed by the Royal Ballet Associate Artist Christopher Wheeldon OBE, who said, "I am thrilled that MJ will come to London, having been embraced by New York audiences since it opened. Michael Jackson had a profound influence on popular culture, as well as all of us as performing artists, and this musical is an exploration of that artistic mind and a creative process which is unmistakably Michael Jackson.”

Wheeldon is joined by an exceptional creative team packed with award winners and nominees, and the cast will be announced nearer the time. If you’d love to know the background to the Dangerous Tour that made the man into the legend he remained for the rest of his life, this one’s for you. As the book writer for MJ, Lynn Nottage said, “As a Black musician and a pioneering voice in the music industry, Michael Jackson demanded inclusion, broke incredible barriers and in the process made indelible music that continues to resonate, delight and move listeners today. I am drawn to his complicated, singular and uncompromising creative process, and to understand where, why and how he made his music." If you’d like to know more about the character behind the magic and the music, this one’s for you.

This show was absolutely brilliant! The music was incredible and the dancing fantastic. It told the story of MJ’s life as well , going back to when he was l just a boy in the Jackson 5.

MJ
Great musical telling you the story of Michael’s life rather than the controversy surrounding him. Great acting by main actor & cast members. Band was phenomenal covering the music down to the last note. Anyone who is a fan will enjoy this show.

Absolutely brilliant night , the show was amazing!
Kirsty, 18 May 2024
You can't Beat It!
MJ is a feast for the eyes and ears. The story is thought provoking, at times tear-jerking, but ultimately the show is about the joy that MJ's music brought to the world.
Geoffrey, 17 May 2024
Brilliant
I hate theatre but this was the best I have ever seen
Paul, 16 May 2024
Michael Jackson music never disappoints
Saw the MJ musical tonight and thoroughly enjoyed it! The story line followed him from his childhood and highlighted how his father was the defining factor of the demons he fought in life. The story line was a little too deep and would have preferred more of the upbeat music and dancing. Could have definitely done without the character, Rachel, singing with MJ. She was not musically talented and did nothing for the songs. The actor, Myles Frost, was phenomenal! All of the backup dancers/singers brought a lot of energy to the show! Overall good show and worth a visit. Inexpensive seats are great! We sat back row Dress circle and had a great view!

Gary, 10 May 2024
Michael Jackson
I love Michael Jackson. When I saw the posters in London advertising the show last year, I couldn’t wait. I watched the actor being interviewed on TV and I was thrilled. I never got to see real Michael Jackson but this was close enough, like my dreams come true. Thank you so much. I will be back.

Four members of my family went to watch this musical. We all absolutely loved it. It was emotional, entertaining and wonderfully portrayed by the cast. MK was outstanding. You remember what a huge talent Michael Jackson was and how difficult his life became.

That was incredible, the music, dancing & storytelling. Such a talented cast. MJ himself would be blown away with this show! A must watch!
Wayne, 04 May 2024
The best show I’ve seen
Fantastic show. The music, lighting, production and storytelling is spot on. Most of all the lead, Myles frost is superb. His voice, dancing and even his mannerisms made it feel like Michael was right in front of us. This show is a must for any MJ fan!
James, 04 May 2024

Love the story of MJ from the childhood until his became the legend. Brilliant actors and actress. Fantastic voice and dancer. MJ is awesome and his voice sounds like an angel!! Falling in love with him 😍 brilliant show!! Would love to listen Heal the World song in the show. Thank you! Highly recommended indeed.
Elsie, 03 May 2024
Magical, creative and powerful
Awesome story and musical but a little bit disappointed because Heal The World song is missing. I’m sure audiences would love to listen to this song. The main character of MJ is awesome and what an angel voice!! Love it 🥰 highly recommended and this is my second time watching the show 😃 thank you!!
Elsie, 03 May 2024

Fabulous show, a big insight into MJ, life story and the troubles he faced. Also the sound was brilliant.
steve, 03 May 2024
Amazing. Must see.
Brilliant, start to finish amazing.
Rhys, 02 May 2024
Inspiring
I thought the music from where I was seated was a bit too loud. The energy from the actors could have been better in terms of the dancing and acting especially MJ. For example they could have added more emotional depth to the disconnect he had to his father and how it pushed him to be who he became there wasn’t a emotional energy connect from the actors
Shikha, 02 May 2024
Fab
Absolutely loved it - obviously music is great but the singing acting and dancing were ace. Would definitely recommend.

Melanie, 01 May 2024
Show very good, But..
The show was very good, but.. where we was seating in the Grand Circle , the majority of people around me including myself and my partner, had great difficulty hearing the verbal dialogue within the show when the actors and actress were speaking as the sound was not great in my seating area. When the singing and songs was taking place the sound was okay.
Adrian, 01 May 2024
Fantastic show
You will love the show if you love MJs music. The orchestra band & singing is amazing!
Heather, 30 Apr 2024
Vibrant and enjoyable
I never thought anyone would be able to emulate Michael Jackson but Myles Frost had the voice, the mannerisms and the vocals spot on. My only criticism would be that there was too much talking and not enough singing!
Tracey, 30 Apr 2024
Masterpiece!!!!
An unbelievable show. The music, the actors, the lighting, everything was BREATHTAKING!!!!
Athanasia, 29 Apr 2024

Incredible show!
The show exceeded all my expectations. Of course the music was awesome, but the acting, directions, story… everything was great. I couldn’t recommend this more. The best show I’ve seen in years.l and Myles who plays Michael is outstanding; even his movement and mannerisms are spot on…. No wonder we won a Tony!

Jane, 10 Apr 2024
Energetic, colourful and thought provoking
I thoroughly enjoyed the show, all the actors were excellent. The background and stage of different scenes were amazing. However the metamorphosis of MJ complexion and personality changes could have been portrayed more accurately.
Cecilia, 10 Apr 2024
Amazing!
Very clever how the story was told and Michael was brilliant! Voice, body language, stance, dance moves, he played the part down to a t! There were moments you had to remind yourself that it wasn’t really him!
Sian, 06 Apr 2024
Excellent
Worth travelling from aus
Linda, 06 Apr 2024
Phenomenal
I have no words to express how phenomenal this show is. The whole world needs to see it. It was funny, sad in parts, uplifting and eye opening. A show of pure talent and genius. Dancing, lighting, music, story line and amazing pure talented actors and dancers. Blew me and my 14 year old daughter away. The way in which the story was told threw the years was pure genius. All the actors who played MJ were truly outstanding. Thank you all
helen, 06 Apr 2024
Just amazing!
Absolutely amazing show. Only draw back was the two young teenagers with their mum infront of me who kept talking. Obviously too young to appreciate the MJ experience.
Sarah, 05 Apr 2024
wonderful
dancing and singing brilliant loved it
Susan, 05 Apr 2024
Better than expected!
Thoroughly enjoyed the show! Myles Frost is amazing! Highly recommended.
Zabeen, 05 Apr 2024
If you are a music lover...
Absolutely fantastic show .... I never got to see MJ live but this is the next best thing !!!!!
Faye, 04 Apr 2024
Phenomenal, surpassed my expectations!!
This was amazing. Holidaying in London, this was my 11 year olds choice. He doesn’t like sitting still for long and has never made it through a full show… until now. We all loved it. I felt MJs story was told in a subtle yet obvious way, combining the history of the Jackson 5 with the more complex years in his height of fame. The guy who played Michael was so believable, and really made the show for me. It’s up there in my top 3 musicals of all time! A must see for anyone and everyone.
Kathleen, 04 Apr 2024

Absolutely fantastic show, great acting, dancing and songs! Thoroughly enjoyed and recommended for all ages

KANA, 25 Mar 2024
Amazing
This is one of the best musicals I have been to. Dancing, singing & choreography was excellent. Very high standard throughout the show. The actor that played Michael Jackson played the part brilliantly. Would highly recommend.
Donna, 24 Mar 2024
Was Expecting Better
After watching Tina this was a let down, very scrambled at times with various MJs on stage with periods of his life. To slow with disjointed story line. Music and actors were good but was expecting more music then drama
Donald, 22 Mar 2024
Awesome show, much audience participation by all
Easy to get to the theatre, all staff really helpful. As a kiwi I loved the audiences show of appreciation throughout the show. Ooohs Ahhhhh end applause. Well done everyone.
Margaret, 22 Mar 2024
100/10!
The best musical that I've ever seen in my life! FENOMENAL! SPECTACULAR! I cannot recommend it enough
Anna, 20 Mar 2024
Fairly entertaining
More music, and less supposed storyline would be my preference. Storyline was hard to hear and follow, as well as a bit disjointed.
Nigel, 20 Mar 2024
Brilliant dancing
Loved the dancing. Story jumped a bit. Only one moon walk. Could not hear speaking very muffled hard to follow.
Lynda, 20 Mar 2024
MJ a must see!
Great night out for all the family. Great cast, musical arrangements, ensemble and a real star in Mike’s as MJ. Even if you are not a MJ fan you will love this. Audience savoured every minute.
Debbie, 16 Mar 2024
The best I have ever seen
This cast are incredible the whole show was absolutely incredible I have grown up with Micheal Jackson from a child listening to him in my moms car Never got to see him in concert before his passing and after seeing this today I was completely blown away from start to finish I could of sat for hours and still would go back and watch it over and over again. You all really are a credit to the show industry
