The musical takes audiences through Jackson's life and catalog with remarkable ease, expertly chronicling major milestones." The critic goes on to add, "His vision and work ethic become more precise, his drive to best himself at once astonishing and worrisome."
Some pivotal moments in MJ the Musical that happened in real life include Jackson leaving Motown Records and joining Epic, where he worked with the legendary Quincy Jones. Together, they came out with astounding efforts, Off the Wall and Thriller. Moreover, many critics praised the MJ for not being the conventional generic jukebox musical. The Washington Post mentioned, "That sordid history would not seem to have foretold a jukebox musical devoted to the favorable side of Jackson's genius."
As with any Michael Jackson story, MJ also gave attention on the challenges the pop star went through. It also gave an glimpse of the cost he had to pay for such profound fame. Variety was quick to point this out, "The demons that Jackson battles in "MJ," his father and the media, are figured as terrifying. But if there was darkness behind the angelic falsetto, a mix of light and shadow that made Michael Jackson a exceptional artist, "MJ" enacts a sleight of hand, insisting it didn't belong to him. It's a renouncement worthy enough of a clever criminal."
