MJ The Musical
Michael Jackson fans rejoice! MJ The Musical is now at the Neil Simon Theatre. Get MJ The Musical tickets on Broadway now. MJ The Musical is set primarily at a rehearsal for Jackson's Dangerous World Tour in 1992. There, an MTV camera crew arrives to get footage and interviews for a documentary on the singer's career. As he sings his hit songs and gradually opens up to the interviewer, his memories and key moments in his career come to life.
The world premiere of MJ The Musical (previously titled Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough) officially debuted on Broadway in 2021. Under the direction of Tony Award winner Christopher Wheeldon (who also won a Tony Award for choreographing the production), the new bio-musical features a plethora of Michael Jackson's greatest hits and a new book by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage. Nottage got her first Tony Award nomination in 2017 for her Broadway debut, Sweat. She made history as a two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, being honored in 2009 for Ruined and in 2017 for Sweat, and her work has also been produced regularly off Broadway, including productions of Intimate Apparel, Mlima's Tale, and By the Way, Meet Vera Stark. Wheeldon is perhaps best known to New York audiences for directing and choreographing the 2015 Broadway premiere of An American in Paris.
