Critic Reviews (5)

The Stage (UK)
October 5th, 2015

“The show has had a revamp...But this brief attempt at a narrative soon gives way to an avalanche of hits and some of Lloyd’s genuinely thrilling, dynamic choreography...’Thriller’ Live could quite easily have rested on its laurels and become a tired, stale shrine to a much loved star. As this recent reworking proves, the show is very much a malleable product, constantly upping its game and rightfully stalking its claim as the best party in the West End.”

Time Out London
June 1st, 2011

“This is a sparkling, singing and shimmying conveyor belt of more than 30 of Jackson's greatest hits..What really hits home in this jubilant jukebox show is the range of repertoire available...The show, held together by the loosest of narratives, begins with a selection of Jackson 5 numbers. These earlier songs are among the best of the nigh...Some of these later songs are terrifyingly idiosyncratic and the lead vocalists struggle with the quirkier numbers...But it is the dancing that dazzles.”

The Telegraph (UK)
January 22nd, 2009

“A glitzy concert of song and dance. It's true that the performers, and the great banks of LED screens, occasionally regale us with statistics about Jackson's amazing career...Within its narrow limits, the show works well. What most people like most about back-catalogue musicals is the medley of big hits at the end, and in this show the hits just keep on coming, largely glossing over the fact that in recent years Jackson has become ever less impressive as a pop star as he grows more bonkers."

“The show very sensibly shares out the performing duties among five lead singers – including a woman – who can all dance, and each of whom uses their particular vocal strengths to deliver all the songs the audience of devotees is expecting...‘Thriller Live’, as conceived by Grant, makes no attempt to string a narrative out of Jackson's career. All the fans want is to hear the songs and see the dances – and in this show, still going strong, that's exactly what they get.”

The Guardian (UK)
February 14th, 2010

“This celebration of Jackson's music doesn't know whether it is...a ‘jukebox show’, a tribute or a superior form of karaoke. It's a mishmash, but the sort that rumbles along happily...Grant keeps the focus on the music. Save for brief segments of narration in the first half...the entire two hours and 40 minutes is comprised of hits, performed by an array of capable soloists...The show is a bit too overwhelmed by Jackson's achievement...It's a small price to pay, though.”
