New Michael Jackson musical MJ is set to open in Australia in 2025.
Produced by Lia Vollack, John Branca, John McClain and Michael Cassel, MJ The Musical will begin performances at the Sydney Lyric Theatre in February 2025. It has not been announced if the production will tour to other state capitals in Australia or New Zealand.
Written by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage, the musical is centred around the making of Michael Jackson’s 1992 Dangerous World Tour and delves into the creative mind and collaborative spirit that catapulted Jackson to legendary status.
Created by Tony Award-winning Director/Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon, MJ The Musical continues to be a huge hit – creatively and financially – on Broadway where it won 4 Tony Awards in 2022 and continues to play to sell out performances. A London production will open in March 2023 at the Prince Edward Theatre with Miles Frost, who originated the role of Michael Jackson on Broadway.
Casting for the Australian production is to be announced.
