THE KING OF POP LIVES ON, ON STAGE!

Winner of four 2022 tony awards

Michael Jackson fans rejoice as a brand new musical all about the iconic superstar is here! With Jackson's plethora of moon-walking hits in tow, MJ the Musical is set to explore the star's life and his stratospheric rise to fame.

The Michael Jackson Estate and Columbia Live Stage have partnered on the project, with two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Sweat, Ruined) set to pen the book. Tony winner Christopher Wheeldon (An American In Paris) has been tapped to Choreograph/Direct the musical. With both Nottage and Wheeldon on the scene, admirers of the late artist can rest assured that Michael's incredible story is in safe hands. 

MICHAEL JACKSON

Rising to fame as a member of the famous Jackson 5 in the late 60's, Michael Jackson is dubbed as the King of Pop, with the artist becoming one of the most significant cultural figures of the twentieth century and one of the greatest entertainers of all time. When his sudden death was announced in 2009, the news shocked the global community with websites crashing due to over-demand to know what was happening to the beloved musician. His legacy lives on with his 31 top ten hits, 13 Grammy Awards, six Brit Awards and 26 American Music Awards.
