The London production began previews on 6 March 2024 and officially opened on 27 March 2024.

MJ centres on the making of Michael Jackson’s acclaimed 1992 Dangerous World Tour, and goes beyond the singular moves and signature sound of the star to offer a rare look at the creative mind and collaborative spirit that catapulted Jackson to legendary status.

The show proved a smash-hit on Broadway, where it won four Tony Awards and is still playing at the Neil Simon Theatre in New York.

Directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon (An American in Paris), MJ has a book by two-time Pulitzer Prize winning writer Lynn Nottage (Clyde’s, Ruined, Sweat).

The cast also includes Derek Aidoo, Morgan Baulch, Milan Cacacie, Spencer Darlaston-Jones, Hanna Dimtsu, Aden Dzuda, Marie Finlayson, Christopher Gopaul, Kalisha Johnson, Grace Kanyamibwa, Travis Kerry, Dianté Lodge, Simeon Montague, George Ross, Lydia Sterling, Toyan Thomas-Browne, Taylor Walker, Charlotte-Kate Warren and Tavio Wright; and Jaydon Eastman, Elliot Mugume, Ethan Sokontwe and Dylan Trigger as Little Michael, Cristiano Cuino, Sekhani Dumezweni, Khanya Madaka and Aidan Oti will play Little Marlon.

The wider creative team includes Scenic Design by Derek McLane, Lighting Design by Natasha Katz, Costume Design by Paul Tazewell, Sound Design by Gareth Owen, Projection Design by Peter Nigrini, and Hair & Wig Design by Charles LaPointe. Musical Supervision is by David Holcenberg, and the Orchestrations and Arrangements are by David Holcenberg and Jason Michael Webb.
