If you're wondering what MJ the Musical can possibly do to give justice to the incredible life that Michael Jackson lived, just leave it to the critics to swiftly define how this musical gave audiences a captivating glimpse of Jackson's point of view. The Hollywood Reporter wrote, "MJ, like its subject, is fascinating and hard to shake. 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 demanding, his drive to best himself at once astonishing and concerning."
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 incredible efforts, Off the Wall and Thriller. Moreover, many critics praised the MJ for not being the ordinary 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 focus on the challenges the pop star went through. It also gave an insight 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 singular artist, "MJ" enacts a trick, insisting it didn't belong to him. It's a renouncement worthy enough of a sly criminal."
This fall, MJ the Musical will cover multiple dates for its national tour, including several performances at the modern Neil Simon Theatre. The concert hall is the ideal venue to host such a phenomenal musical. Neil Simon Theatre has a long tradition and experience in providing high-quality entertainment to music and arts enthusiasts of New York, New York, and beyond!
