The multi-Tony Award®-winning musical, MJ the Musical, is centered around how Michael Jackson made the 1992 Dangerous World Tour.

"Created by Tony Award®-winning Director/Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage, MJ goes beyond the singular moves and signature sound of the star, offering a rare look at the creative mind and collaborative spirit that catapulted Michael Jackson into legendary status."
