“MJ” will celebrate Halloween 2023 with a now-annual tradition. On Oct. 31, the cast will perform a special encore of the song “Thriller” after curtain call.
Though “Thriller” is performed within the musical, the post-bows rendition will include the iconic choreography plus special costumes, lighting and projections.
Audiences are encouraged to attend the Oct. 31 performance in costume.
The company of “MJ” offered the same performance on Oct. 31, 2022, in celebration of Halloween.
Written by Lynn Nottage with a score of songs made famous by Michael Jackson, “MJ” tells the story of the King of Pop from his childhood up until rehearsals for his 1992 “Dangerous” tour. The musical features direction and Tony Award-winning choreography by Christopher Wheeldon with Michael Jackson movement by Rich + Tone Talauega.
“MJ” is produced by Lia Vollack, John Branca and John McClain.
