What's On


  • Musicals

Is Broadway ready to embrace a biographical musical portrait of Michael Jackson in the early 1990s, when the King of Pop was on his Dangerous world tour? The producers of MJ are hoping so. Created with the cooperation of Jackson's estate, the show will feature many songs by the late star's extensive catalog, with a book by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Ruined) and direction and choreography by Christopher Wheeldon (An American in Paris). Newcomer Myles Frost plays the title role, with support from a cast that includes Quentin Earl Darrington, Whitney Bashor, Gabriel Ruiz and Antoine L. Smith.
