As an MJ fan, I expected a musical tribute to Michael and this show delivered it brilliantly in every way. All singers, dancers and musicians were stunning, never missing a beat, note or step. They would have gained Michael's nod and should be proud of their interpretation of Michael's work, which makes theirs and Michael's work resilient. The female singer, who sang as Michael, was amazing. I loved that a woman sang as MJ, adding a new diverse and wonderfully creative dimension. Dirty Diana’s female dancer was on fire and electrified the audience. Clearly the musical had the best choreographers, setting and lighting experts, costume designers and musicians. The lead male dancer was a joy to watch with his incredible agility and enthusiasm. Smooth Criminal was awesome as well. I also loved Michael's old songs as a child, performed authentically. I enjoyed every second and would thoroughly recommend it to all ages. Thank you for keeping Michael's memory alive.

I saw this last night. This show is essentially a load of MJ tribute acts. Once you get over that fact, and that one of the main singers is a girl who sometimes sounds like MJ and sometimes just sounds like an amazing female singer, the show is amazing. Full of energy, kept the original choreography (Beat It, Smooth Criminal, Thriller, Billy Jean) and loved the crowd participation at the end too. My personal highlight was Billy Jean and Smooth Criminal, fab performance. I'd definitely see this show again and helps to keep the essence of MJ alive for coming generations.

I was originally due to see Michael Jackson in August so I needed cheering up. I had previously seen Thriller Live in Norwich and was really impressed so I went with a friend to see it again at the Lyric. The show lived up to my expectations but the evening was spoilt by a nasty, hyperactive little jobsworth who acted more like a prison warder, scuttling up and down the aisles scanning the rows for anybody who might commit the major crime of taking a photograph – even before the show had started! Being constantly under this idiot’s surveillance certainly didn’t contribute to enjoyment of the show. When it was pointed out to him that signs about camera use might be a good idea he just barked “we know.” Obnoxious or what? We couldn’t complain to the manager as he had made himself scarce. My advice, see the show but avoid the Lyric Theatre.
