Great staging, Precise & slick, Musical bio, Fantastic lead, cast & ensemble, Beloved music

See it if you enjoy complex musical biographies performed with beauty & integrity. The dancing moves/steps are precision timing.

Don't see it if pop musical bios are not your preferred choice of show.

Great acting, Uneven, Great singing, Entertaining, Ambitious

See it if you want to experience the Tony-winning star turn from Myles Frost. You will very much feel like you are watching Michael Jackson himself.

Don't see it if if you need the narrative to be told in a highly compelling way. It isn’t, but the musical numbers provide plenty to entertain. Read more

Entertaining, Dance, Vocals

See it if You're a Michael Jackson fan and you want to hear some of his best songs with a great cast and live band!

Don't see it if You are expecting a story covering the whole of MJ's life, this story stops in the 1990s.

Indulgent, Great music, Great dancing, Disappointing, Cliched

See it if You are a mega fan of MJ, the dancing and the music is amazing but the book is very weak.

Don't see it if You are expecting a strong Jukebox musical or a clever piece of musical theatre or aren’t a fan of MJ. It’s a tribute show on steroids!

Flat, Choppy, Overrated, Disappointing, Great choreography

See it if you want to see a show about Michael Jackson and don't mind that the emphasis is not on the music. Great choreography and band.

Don't see it if it will frustrate you that less than 50% of the songs are by Michael Jackson and that for many of those you will only hear snatches, Read more
