MJ the Musical in London

Myles Frost thrilled audiences as Michael Jackson on Broadway, a performance that earned him a Tony award for Best Lead Actor in a Musical, the youngest ever winner. MJ The Musical was nominated for an astounding 10 Tony Awards including Best Musical, and it’s absolutely stacked with classic Jackson chart toppers. Experience the magic and unparalleled talent and influence of Michael Jackson on the West End stage! 

Discover Michael Jackson’s life, creative spirit and music

Michael Jackson was one of the most popular entertainers of all time. His dance skills made him a legend, inspiring the world to moonwalk. His albums sold in their millions. Now his unique artistry is being showcased in a brand-new musical.

The show focuses on the making of Jackson’s legendary 1992 Dangerous World Tour. Created by the Tony winning Director and Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon, in cahoots with the twice-Pulitzer Prize winning writer Lynn Nottage, it’s about so much more than the music. This is a jukebox musical with a difference, containing more than 25 of MJ’s brilliant songs, and while MJ has all the moves it also reveals the extraordinary mind and creative spirit behind the tunes.

MJ The Musical was due to premiere on Broadway in mid-2020 but fell victim to Covid. Ephraim Sykes was originally cast as Jackson but was replaced by Myles Frost in June 2021. When it finally opened the show had mixed reviews from critics, but audiences knew better. Along with the Tony won by Myles Frost it won Tonys for Best Choreography, Best Lighting Design, and Best Sound Design. The original cast recording scored equally high, netting a Grammy nomination for Best Musical Theater Album. January 2024 saw the Broadway production grossing a mighty $170.9 million, seen by more than 1.1 million people.

An impressive cast and creative team

A fantastic cast joins Myles Frost. Ashley Zhangazha (Tina) plays Joseph Jackson / Rob. Mitchell Zhangazha (Ain't Too Proud) plays Michael, Philippa Stefani (Wicked) is Rachel, and Phebe Edwards (The Lion King) plays Katherine Jackson / Kate.

Matt Mills (Dream Girls) portrays Berry Gordy / Nick, while Rohan Pinnock-Hamilton (Get Up Stand Up) is Tito Jackson / Quincy Jones. Matt Gonsalves (Dear Evan Hansen) is Alejandro, and Jon Tsouras (Sunset Boulevard) plays Dave.

The creative team is equally experienced, including Scenic Design by Derek McLane (Moulin Rouge! The Musical), Lighting Design by Natasha Katz (Once), Costume Design by Paul Tazewell (Hamilton), Sound Design by Gareth Owen (Come From Away), Projection Design by Peter Nigrini (Dear Evan Hansen), plus Hair and Wig Design by Charles LaPointe (The Color Purple). Musical Supervision is by David Holcenberg (Matilda The Musical), and the Orchestrations and Arrangements are by David Holcenberg and Jason Michael Webb (The Color Purple).

MJ THE MUSICAL will allow audiences to see a snapshot into the story of one of the most popular entertainers of all time, Michael Jackson. With performances now underway at the Prince Edward Theatre, it’d be criminal to miss this show!

I have no words to express how phenomenal this show is. The whole world needs to see it. It was funny, sad in parts, uplifting and eye opening. A show of pure talent and genius. Dancing, lighting, music, story line and amazing pure talented actors and dancers. Blew me and my 14 year old daughter away. The way in which the story was told threw the years was pure genius. All the actors who played MJ were truly outstanding. Thank you all

Phenomenal, surpassed my expectations!!

This was amazing. Holidaying in London, this was my 11 year olds choice. He doesn’t like sitting still for long and has never made it through a full show… until now. We all loved it. I felt MJs story was told in a subtle yet obvious way, combining the history of the Jackson 5 with the more complex years in his height of fame. The guy who played Michael was so believable, and really made the show for me. It’s up there in my top 3 musicals of all time! A must see for anyone and everyone.
