MJ The Musical

MJ Postpones Premiere to March 2021

Lia Vollack Productions and The Michael Jackson Estate have announced that, due to the Broadway shutdown, dates have been rescheduled for the upcoming World Premiere of MJ, the new musical on Broadway. Preview performances are now set to begin on Monday, March 8, 2021, with Opening Night scheduled for Thursday, April 15 at 6:30 PM at the Neil Simon Theatre.

MJ is the electrifying new Broadway musical that takes audiences inside the creative process of one of the greatest entertainers in history. Featuring over 25 of Michael Jackson’s biggest hits, MJ allows us to rediscover the man in the mirror – with an explosion of music and theatricality as unforgettable as the artist himself.

Starring Ephraim Sykes, the Tony and Grammy Award nominee who has been cast as Michael Jackson, MJ will feature a book by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage and a score made up of some of the best-loved, top-selling, and most iconic songs in recording history. Tony Award-winner Christopher Wheeldon will direct and choreograph. 

MJ will feature set design by Tony Award winner Derek McLane, lighting design by Tony Award winner Natasha Katz, costumes by Tony Award winner Paul Tazwell, sound design by Tony Award nominee Gareth Owen, projection design by Tony Award nominee Peter Nigrini, and hair and wig design by Charles LaPointe. Jason Michael Webb will serve as Music Director, with Musical Supervision by David Holcenberg, and orchestrations by Holcenberg and Webb.
