He is one of the greatest entertainers of all time. Now, Michael Jackson’s unique and unparalleled artistry has finally arrived on Broadway in a brand-new musical. Centered around the making of his 1992 Dangerous World Tour, and 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.

FEATURED REVIEWS FOR MJ

Review: MJ at The Paramount Theatre
5 / 10

The book by the incredible playwright Lynn Nottage is an embarrassment. With forced and heavy-handed dialog, most of the impetus for the story is from the faux questions from the reporter. At which we proceed to learn that Michael’s father Joseph (Devin Bowles) was a monster, physically and mentally abusing his kids and working them to the bone. And we learn this about him over and over and over again. All of this goes to paint MJ as a victim of his upbringing and attempts to justify any troublesome things he did himself, assuming we ever really talk about them at all. They portray him as a diva, perfectionist, child but when they try and talk about anything icky, they moonwalk past it as quickly as possible.

MJ the Musical Dazzles Though Avoids Deep Insights into the King of Pop
8 / 10

Don’t expect to learn anything new that you didn’t already know. MJ the Musical, playing now at Broadway at the Hobby Center, dazzles. It doesn't illuminate. His father, Joe, was abusive. His desires to breakaway from the Jackson 5/The Jacksons banner and become a solo artist were not well received from some members of his family. He and Quincy Jones created timeless albums. He was lonely and was notorious for an eccentric sense of arrested development. He had a monkey named Bubbles and a home called Neverland.
