MJWN Est. 1998

MJ Musical London Premiere

“MJ the Musical” premiered in London last night to much anticipation. The award-winning show, created in collaboration with the Jackson estate, received critical acclaim in the U.S., garnering 10 Tony Award nominations.

Now in the West End, the UK edition features the original cast, including Myles Frost as Michael Jackson, Ashley Zhanghaza as Joseph Jackson, and Mitchell Zhangaza as Michael’s brother.

Michael’s children Prince, Paris and Bigi attended the press night, marking a rare public appearance for all three together. Other attendees included former Celebrity Big Brother star Marisha Wallace, composer Hans Zimmer, Strictly Come Dancing stars Arlene Phillips and Darcey Bussell, and talk show host Jeremy Vine.

In a four-star review, The Independent’s theatre critic Alice Saville praised Myles Frost’s portrayal of the adult Michael Jackson. She wrote,

“As the grown-up MJ, Myles Frost moves with a dreamy, fantastically eerie lightness, whether he’s moonwalking, pranking everyone by dressing up as a janitor, or squirting his business manager with a water pistol.”

“MJ the Musical” will be playing in London until September this year at the Prince Edward Theatre.
