I have been to lots of Broadway musicals around the world,and this time I was happened to be in the US because of my business trip,and knew this MJ Musical is premier there,didn’t expect so much and I can not call myself an MJ fan at all,i know some MJ hit songs. This is my review about that show. First: I have never experienced this much positive energy of the audience,I feel MJ is really loved by the audiences there, a man sitting beside me was crying during the show. Second: the casting is amazing,there are 3 MJs, each one of them really has MJ spirit in them, I can tell they really studied MJ and had brought out the best of MJ in the show. Third: there are some things which MJ struggled in his life which was well presented in the show,like the vitiligo and his complicated feelings towards his dad,to be honest ,I am a 60 year old white man who really always questioned MJ’s behavior till now,and after watching this musical, I , for the first time did some research about MJ’s wired behavior,like why he always had children around him,and I have to apologize to MJ today first time in my life, he was just a little kid in an adult body. Through the songs in this show which I never heard before, like “Money”, “They don’t care about us”…I have a clearer and better view of MJ now,he is a music genius, and I can also say this loud too: he is a great human being,I misunderstood him for years, this musical
Is worthy attending. I hope others can give it a watch too.
