Singer. Songwriter. Dancer. Icon. MJ The Musical invites audiences into Jackson’s creative process, taking us behind the scenes of Jackson’s most lauded artistic triumphs. From “Beat It,” to the Moonwalk, to “Thriller,” the MJ musical features over 25 of Jackson’s biggest smash hits.

MJ makes its world premiere on Broadway at the Neil Simon Theatre. MJ hits New York with direction and choreography by Tony award winner Christopher Wheeldon, who created the exhilarating dances for An American In Paris on Broadway.

The MJ musical is written by Lynn Nottage, with a story that is set to shed fresh light and let audiences in on the soul behind “The Man in the Mirror.” Nottage is a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and a Tony Award nominee for her acclaimed play Sweat, and now she turns her eye towards Jackson’s unique and complex legacy.

With astonishing dances, unforgettable songs, and a cast of 22, MJ on Broadway gives a galvanizing new look at the life and times of one of the greatest entertainers in history.

What to Watch For

  • MJ The Musical was originally slated to begin Broadway performances in July 2020, but was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
  • MJ centers on the lead-up to Jackson's hugely successful “Dangerous” tour in the early 1990s, rather than attempting to cover the singer’s whole career. There are, however, plenty of flashbacks to key memories up to that point.
  • MJ creatives Nottage and Wheeldon describe MJ as an in-depth look at Jackson’s life and creative process, and not a jukebox musical. “You will leave with a better understanding of who he was as a human being,” Nottage told The New York Times.
  • According to set designer Derek McLane, the show frequently transports audiences “into Michael’s mind — his memories and dreams,” including a flashy streetscape design dotted with neon and fire escapes which McLane unveiled in March 2020.
  • Nottage is seemingly everywhere on the New York theatre scene. Her new play Clyde’s also premiered on Broadway in 2021, with previews beginning in October, just two months before the first performance of MJ. And an opera adaptation of her play Intimate Apparel, which began previews in 2020, played at Lincoln Center in January 2022, making her the only person to have a play, musical, and opera in New York at the same time.
