I'm probably not speaking from an impartial place because I have a friend whon was cast in this run of the show. I'm a 70s baby so the show was very nostalgic for me. I sang, I danced and surprisingly, I cried. The gift that Michael gave to the world has been misunderstood. The cast and vocals were good and I was blown away by the set changes and the scenery. If you're gonna portray the King of Pop, then you gotta go BIG. I wanted to stay and get in another show but time wasn't on my side. If you get a chance to see ANY show while here in The Big Apple, this show IS IT!

Wife's first trip to NYC. I've been several times. Enjoyed about a dozen musicals so far. And all have been really good. MJ was the best of all them. On this trip we also went to Moulin Rouge, really good. Alladin. Really fun and good... But MJ was so good we went back to see it again. I am a almost 70 yo, not what you would consider a MJ fan, but I can figure out how good a show is after seeing it. Previously Fiddler, 42nd st, Chorusline, Dreamgirls, Tap dance Kid, Cats, My One and Only, Chorus line again, 42nd st again... MJ and Dream girls were almost a bio musical, MJ telling a sad story of MJs life and dining and dancing choreographed into one seamless entertaining sequence after another. Definitely recommended. I would also recommend Moulin rouge and Alladin, which were both entertaining without much controversy. Boy George medley at the end of Moulin was quite a treat. I am a casual fan of MJ and not at all of Boy George, but good is good.

What a show!! All of the actors were wonderful, especially Elijah Rhea Jonson who played Michael. Elijah's performance in a male leading role was the best Iv'e seen. I would definitely go see it again.

My mother just turn 81 on April 4th, So I decided to surprise her with tickets to MJ The Musical this past Sunday, April 7. If you haven't experienced this electrifying journey that is MJ The Musical, let me be the one to insist that you do! When it comes to capturing the essence of Michael Jackson's life, music, and legendary career, this show truly hits every note. The cast delivers performances that breathe life into every character, making you feel like you're right there alongside the King of Pop himself. The stage design is nothing short of spectacular, with backdrops that takes you to iconic moments in Jackson's career. Add to that the amazing use of lighting and effects, and you're in for a visual treat. And oh, the music! The musical arrangements and vocals are simply outstanding, leaving you with chills and a strong desire to dance in your seat. Trust me when I say, this is one performance you absolutely cannot miss. It's a must-see for fans and music lovers alike. Don't just take my word for itโ€”go see it for yourself! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ‘€

Pros: Iconic Song Selection and Well-Executed Dances: Diverse range of his hits and execution of signature dance moves. Nostalgic Journey: Highlights Jackson 5 era, brung trip down memory lane. Black Representation: Heartwarming moments with an all-black cast, significant given Broadway's history and Michael Jackson's legacy in elevating black artists. Cons: Vocal Disparities: Some characters, like the woman portraying his mother and managers, outshone Michael vocally; his distinctive voice could be better captured. Prolonged Interviews: Lengthy interviews lacked new insights; replacing them with Janet Jackson could enhance the performance. Weird Pill Popping: Didn't contributed anything meaningful to story. Repeated Songs: Repetition of "Jam", "Thriller" limited representation of Michael's artistry. Alarming Stage Effects: Loud stage effects were alarming, insensitive for older audience.
