MJ – The Musical Tickets:
NYC’s unbeatable night out!
Michael Jackson’s unique and unparalleled artistry has finally arrived on Broadway!
Broadway’s 4-time Tony Award-winning hit!
The legendary Michael Jackson, one of the greatest entertainers of all time, is making a grand debut on Broadway! This exciting new musical, MJ, takes you on a journey into the heart of his artistry. It’s not just about his iconic moves and signature sound; it’s a deep dive into the creative genius that made him a legend. The story revolves around the making of his epic 1992 Dangerous World Tour.
If you’re guessing who the masterminds are behind this show, it’s none other than Tony Award®-winning Director/Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage. They’ve joined forces to bring you an unparalleled experience that showcases the collaborative spirit and creative brilliance that propelled Michael Jackson to legendary status.
Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon spoke about the show in its early stages. He said, “The show is very much anchored in one particular moment in time. I always bring up the fabulous movie that Spielberg made about Lincoln: You take one key moment, I suppose, in the history of someone’s life and then sort of use that as an anchor point for past storytelling and, perhaps, some kind of prophecy of what’s to come. We’ll be doing that with this story.” When asked about the dance and choreography, he said he “intend[s] to put quite a lot of Michael’s work in the show.”

At the start of the production, they transport you right into the legendary Studio 54 during “Wanna Be Starting Something.” It’s like stepping into a time machine and partying at the disco – so much fun! Then, there are these stunning shattered crystal visuals during “They Don’t Care About Us” that are unnervingly mind-blowing. In act two, Director/Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon pays tribute to MJ’s favorite dancers – Fred Astaire, Bob Fosse, and the Nicholas Brothers after “Billie Jean.” It’s a heartfelt nod to the legends that inspired MJ’s moves.
But that’s not all! “Smooth Criminal” takes the cake with a neon-lit cityscape performance, adding a whole new layer of excitement to the performance. And of course, we can’t forget the epic “Thriller.” The production recreates it just like the Dangerous World Tour, and it’s an undeniable showstopper.
“Nothing but the late King of Pop’s greatest hits!” – The Wrap
“The music and the dancing are sensational.” – TimeOut NY

The Associated Press was stunned by the star of the show Myles Frost’s performance. In a review, it was said that “nothing should take away from a tireless, fully-committed Myles Frost, who plays Jackson with a high, whispery voice, a Lady Diana-like coquettishness and a fierce embrace of Jackson’s iconic dancing and singing style, right down to the rhythmic breathing and swiveling head. He Moonwalks insanely well.”
