Thriller – Live: Boogie on down to Michael Jackson’s greatest hits

This is more of an exploration and celebration of singer-songwriter and street dance whizz Michael Jackson’s spectacular talents than a biography. It doesn’t cover every aspect of the great man’s life in any detail, but you’ll enjoy a fast-paced, runaway stream of massive smash hits that made him a household name worldwide.

Thriller Live – The Story

In 1988 Adrian Grant, the man behind the stage show, was so taken with Jackson’s talent that he created the world’s first Michael Jackson fan magazine. Two years later, with a circulation of more than twenty five thousand, he was invited to Jackson’s famous funfair-filled home, Neverland, and a lifelong friendship was born. Kicking off with Jackson’s early Motown and blues tunes and covering his disco, indie and pop smashes, this show tracks Jackson’s success through the decades via his music, an affectionate and respectful look at Jackson’s musical achievements from one of his greatest fans.

Thriller Live, a genuine West End musical masterpiece

Take your seats and boogie on down as the cast belts out song after wonderful song, covering the early Motown and Jackson Five days right up to the solo successes that made such an impression on generations of music lovers. And the dance sequences are simply breath-taking. If you were thrilled by Jackson’s pop videos you’ll be equally enthralled by this West End masterpiece.

The audience always participates in the Jackson classic Shake Your Body Down, giving you the opportunity to get involved and feel even closer to one of the greatest musical stars of our times. If you weren’t lucky enough to catch Michael Jackson live before his tragic death, the stage show goes a long way towards making up for it. Whatever your age, you’ll enjoy hearing his famous songs performed live on stage by a troupe of extremely talented people, with stunning costumes, fantastic choreography and, of course, every single one of the singer’s uniquely funky dance steps.

Thriller Live song list

This spectacular show contains thirty five of Michael Jackson’s greatest and best loved hits. Act one covers Music and Me, ABC, The Love You Save, I Want You Back and I’ll Be There. Show You the Way, This Place Hotel, Another Part of Me, Shake Your Body Down and Blame It On The Boogie. She’s Out of My Life, Off The Wall, Get on the Floor, Rock With You and Never Can Say Goodbye, Don’t Stop Til You Get Enough and Can You Feel It.

Act two sees the cast performing mega-hits Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’, Working Day and Night, Dancing Machine, PYT, Beat It, The Way You Make Me Feel, I Just Can’t Stop Loving You, Smooth Criminal, Dirty Diana, Dangerous, Man in the Mirror, They Don’t Care About Us, Heal the World, Billie Jean, Thriller itself, Bad and Black or White.

London Box Office customer

Absolutely amazing show!


London Box Office customer

Absolutely fantastic show, bright,colourful with some fantastic singing. A must see!!

London Box Office customer

Awesome musical, not to be missed

Sat in 2nd row, seats BB4 and BB5. So close to stage, was great to see everything. Fantastic music, choreography, all cast worked so hard to give the audience a great time. They had us all up on our feet singing and dancing. The young man who played MJ was amazing, his moves his dancing, his singing, uncanny resemblance. Real feel good factor. Not to be missed if you're visiting London. Would highly recommend.


London Box Office customer

High energy show, some great singing and dancing...definite must see

My daughter loves dancing, She was not disappointed, the second half definitely had more energy but overall the show was highly entertaining and full of energy, the dancing and some singing was amazing. We were in the Dress Circle in the middle so great view. What I'd like to comment on is the layout online showed full but there were loads of empty seats, regarding the show the lady vocalist was great but somehow did not fit in, maybe atleast make an effort to look like MJ. The MJ lookalike was awesome, both singing and dancing, not an easy combination, all the vocalists were great specially the guy with the ponytail, overall highly entertaining evening.....


London Box Office customer

amazing show!!!

What a great show, the singers and dancers were all amazing and we had a great time!


London Box Office customer

Great even if you're not a big Michael Jackson fan

We went to a matinée so you think the cast might be a pacing themselves but the energy and performance level was full on for us.


London Box Office customer

Brilliant

The best west End Show that we have seen


London Box Office customer

Even better the second time

This is the second time we have been to see Thriller at the Lyric and everyone agreed that it was fantastic. We did not think that it could have been better than the first time but it was. Congratulations to all the cast who were excellent inc all of your front of house staff, they were helpful as my grandson is disabled and they helped with the wheelchair. The Lyric is a lovely small Theatre and we all hope it continues for many years to come.


London Box Office customer

London Box Office customer

Fabulous!

London Box Office customer

Where was the young Michael Jackson???

It's the second time I see this show and it was extremely disappointing this time around not to have the young actor/singer in the first half of the show. I feel like I want my money back to be honest as he is such an incredible actor/singer, does then impersonation of the young Michael Jackson perfectly. Without him the show loses a huge edge. We also had KO for the first 5 minutes of the show and he then never came back. The guy that replaced him was not half as good. Overall disappointing.


London Box Office customer

Entertaining but not as good as few years ago

Colourful show .but we felt that the singers didnt really look like michael jackson .although there was one who did.who should be the main man himself.not sure why a women is singing as michael Jackson .for obvious reasons.great singing voices .but not michael jacksons.


London Box Office customer

Average

We expected a story line which there wasn't. The dancing and singing was good but I could have just as well listened to a cd


London Box Office customer

Fun good upbeat show

London Box Office customer

Thriller live

The best show I've seen great music brilliant dancing Michael Jackson back in the house 2nd time I've seen it took mate for first time she loved it up dancing away great night


London Box Office customer

BRILLIANT

Seats in stalls H11,12,13 & 14. Excellent seats at £46.50 each via ticket office online. Show was amazing. Lots of singing and dancing by cast. Full on show worth every penny. Show is about Michaels Jacksons music and not about his life. Show worth every penny and would love to see it again. Definately recommend- You won't be disappointed.


London Box Office customer

poor show more like a tribute band than a show


London Box Office customer

Good to hear all the hits

Personally we thought that the stage wasn't big enough for the production although the dancers used the space well. Theatre was also very warm and assumed as it is an old theatre that there wasn't any ac.


London Box Office customer

brilliant

London Box Office customer

Amazing!

If you've not been, why not? This is a must see show for anyone. All ages will enjoy this show. Ive been twice and sent family here as a gift. Everyone wants to see the show again.

London Box Office customer

I enjoyed it after the 6th visit but disappointed with seats and only cash purchases

If you having walking/breathing/height worries do NOT book balcony seats


London Box Office customer

lively & entertaining

Good throughout, covered many songs the 5 lead singers were outstanding a good 2.5 hours of sheer entertainment


London Box Office customer

Best show ever

London Box Office customer

Like watching MJ over the decades...amazing!!!

The singing was fantastic and the entertainers were fun, full of energy & amazing dancers! Will see it again!!!


London Box Office customer

Best Musical Ever!

London Box Office customer

Great music, great dancing, a really enjoyable show. No storyline or acting really involved but that does not spoil the show.

Fantastic music if you like Michael Jackson or the Jackson 5. My 12 year old loved it too. Spend money on balcony seats if you can as the view is so much better, we were in the dress circle which was ok but not fabulous. The two halves feel right in length of time, nice interval for refreshments. We pre-paid tickets and collection and purchasing drinks was quick. Overall a great piece of entertainment and the cast looked like they enjoyed themselves which added to our enjoyment. Ideal for couples, families with children aged over 8 or music lovers in general.


London Box Office customer

Spot on...

London Box Office customer

Good feeling

London Box Office customer

Happiest show in town

From start to finish a magical musical night. Great talent and Smooth Criminal dance is a show stopper every time !

London Box Office customer

must see

London Box Office customer

A FANTASTIC SHOW.

I have seen Thriller Live three times and I absolutely love it. The dancers and singers are really amazing not to mention sexy ( can I say that?). I recommend this show to anyone who loves having a good time.


London Box Office customer

Big group performance

London Box Office customer

BRILLIANT

SINGING SHARED AMONG 4 PEOPLE, THE LADY SINGER IS VERY GOOD. MJ LOOK-A-LIKE IS AN AMZING DANCER, WOULD HAVE PREFERED SEEING MORE OF HIM. SHOW STARTED ON TIME.


London Box Office customer

Don't bother

I would not recommend this show to anyone. It honestly felt like I was at someone's Michael Jackson themed dress up party. I am no Whitney but the signing wasn't what I would expect from a London theatre show and the production appeared amateur to say the least. I was very dissappointed with this show.


London Box Office customer

Dancing outstanding


London Box Office customer

Stiff dances spoil the show

Great signing, great songs, but lifeless, stiff, no passion dancers that spoil the whole show. Can't avoid looking at those dancers and wonder how did they get the part in this show.


London Box Office customer

A vibrant journey through Michael Jackson's music

Talented singers and dancers taking you through Michael Jackson's musical career. A fun night out.


London Box Office customer

Lively, authentic ,Michael Jackson at his best!

Brilliant choreography, superb singing,great dancers, and a cracking band!


London Box Office customer

Amazing

The show was amazing from start to finish!


London Box Office customer

Felt a bit slow

Michael Jackson was great, really took you back to the life and times of MJ. But did not see enough of him thus the play became very slow.


London Box Office customer

A dynamic moment!

London Box Office customer

If you liked MJ, you'll really enjoy the show

Review: THRILLER LIVE at the Apollo Theatre

12 Oct 2015 in Reviews

Thriller Live As a Michael Jackson fan I was intrigued how the evening would pan out, hoping it wouldn’t just be a concert with carbon copy Michael Jacksons.

I needn't have worried.
