Why Is MJ Broadway’s Hottest New Musical? Watch This!


He is one of the greatest entertainers of all time. Now, Michael Jackson’s unique and unparalleled artistry is on Broadway in a brand-new musical that’s become a must-see for visitors to NYC.

MJ is centered around the making of his 1992 Dangerous World Tour, created by Tony Award®-winning Director/Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage. MJ goes beyond the singular moves and signature sound of the star, offering a rare look at the creative mind and collaborative spirit that catapulted Jackson into legendary status.

The story gets deep into the creative process, as Michael rehearses numbers, recounts stories, and in dazzling flashback sequences, relives the highs and lows of a lifetime in the public eye. Tony®-winner Myles Frost doesn’t just become the King of Pop onstage; he brings the audience on a journey and shares all the talent, passion, pain, and joy of one of the greatest icons of our time.

The video above is just one small piece of the musical’s appeal. At the top of the show, the Dangerous dancers and creative team get ready to start rehearsal—a small preview of how Wheeldon weaves Jackson’s iconic choreography with his own vision. As the dancers get moving, the audience hears the first strains of the Thriller album’s smash-hit “Beat It.” Michael enters, and the real magic begins.

“Beat It” is just one of 25 Michael Jackson hits audiences get to experience in this non-stop musical journey. MJ allows everyone to rediscover the man in the mirror—with an explosion of music and theatricality as unforgettable as the artist himself.

There are so many reasons why audiences from around the world are coming to Broadway to see this blockbuster new musical. Because of its popularity, tickets for MJ should always be purchased ahead of time, so get yours and experience the life and music of one of the greatest entertainers in history.
