BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS!

This was the best musical I have seen in a LONG time. I didn't know what to expect, and it actually turned out to be a complete STORY with emotion, drama, love, loss, pain and joy. The actors and singers were STELLAR. At one point everyone was crying during a pivotal scene with Little MJ, and another point -- The Thriller portion, you could hear a pin drop. What a beautiful look into the life and story of MJ. There were THREE standing ovations during my viewing of the show. THREE. At one point people just stopped sitting down. A tour de force. Definitely worth a watch and rewatch! I'm taking my family next time!!!

AN EMOTIONAL, INTIMATE PORTRAYAL OF A MUSICAL PHENOMENON

MJ the Musical far exceeded my expectations! I wasn’t sure what to expect, especially as a longtime fan of Michael Jackson. His story was told beautifully and the actors portraying Michael (child, teenage/young adult, and Dangerous era) did so with respect. You can tell they really studied Michael the performer and the man because it showed. And wow, are they talented! If you enjoy Michael’s music and you’re looking to better understand the man, this is the perfect show for you. I laughed, cried, and cheered so loudly at the end I almost lost my voice. Numerous standing ovations and people of all ages from all walks of life enjoying and celebrating Michael’s life. I cannot say enough about this ridiculously talented cast and their unforgettable tribute to one of the greatest entertainers of all time. It’s one of the best productions I’ve seen. It was more than a jukebox musical. When you see what they’ve done with his songs, you’ll appreciate them in a whole new way.

RUN FULL SPEED TO EXPERIENCE “MJ” THE MUSICAL

Myles Frost gives his audience an opportunity to breathe in the style, talent, artistry and personality of the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. He dances, sings, moves, speaks and looks like Michael Jackson. It is a theatrical experience that brings back to life the genius singing and dancing talent of Michael Jackson. Myles Frost is Michael Jackson. I deeply felt the passion, pain, creativity of Michael Jackson. His struggle of having an abusive father and the lack of privacy and distortions of his personal life that come with fame, were evident and real. The music and dancing were PERFECTION! The energy and overwhelming involvement of the entire audience were beyond any intensity that I have ever experienced in the theater! The entire cast contributed to the masterful production performing dancing and singing support to the overall theatrical “miracle!” Run to the theater! It’s a HIT! The cast frames this work of theatrical art! Myles Frost pays homage to The King of Pop with superb singing and dancing! I felt his passion, enjoyment and the pride that he must have for working hard to do this difficult role Justice. Stop reading! RUN!!!!

THERE ARE NO WORDS

The talent on that stage today- there are no words. Myles Frost was born to play this role. The younger Michael Christian Wilson simply spectacular. The talent of the entire cast was unbelievable. You all did Michael proud. I laughed I cried I learned a little more about the king of pop. Thank you for being so fabulous.

PHENOMENAL! GO SEE IT. IT’S AN ABSOLUTE GEM.

Actors are tremendous, dancing is spectacular, all of the MJs are tremendously gifted entertainers and had you believing Michael was right in front of you. One of the best performances I’ve seen in a long time.

OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE!

Kudos to Myles Frost and the cast of MJ The Musical for a fantastic show! The choreography and music are simply outstanding! The highlights of Michael Jackson’s most memorable performances are redone with precision in every move. Some may ridicule that the story of his life isn’t fully depicted, but he will always be the “King of Pop”.

OUTSTANDING AND THRILLING SHOW

My husband, daughters and I enjoyed every second of the phenomenal show. It definitely put the icing on the cake for my birthday. The best musical I have been to. Excellent performers and a night to remember forever.

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! GO SEE THIS SHOW!

This was my our first visit from KC to NY. We knew we wanted to see a Broadway show while we were in NY. MJ the Musical was absolutely amazing and we are so glad we picked this one. We were blown away on how great everything was! The actor who played Michael was phenomenal. Amazing talent in the entire cast as well.

MJ THE MUSICAL

It was awesome. Miles Frost embodied MJ in such a way that It as though he was MJ. The younger MJs were awesome. The writers did a fantastic job showing the perfectionist, the coyness, the joking, the pain, the musical intellect, the over all intelligence, the heart. Everything about Michael Jackson the person. I could watch it 100 times. Miles Frost was MJ. The actor that portrayed the youngest Michael was amazing . The music and performances were great. It was mesmerizing. You felt like you were there during those times. Miles Frost actually embodied even at the end as they were being given a standing ovation. His dinging, dancing, mannerisms were all spot on. I could go on and on for ever. I was on the 3 rd row and even that close I felt like I was watching MJ himself. This couldn’t have been easy given MJ isn’t a small role to follow. Bravo to Miles Frost,

EPIC! PLEASE SEE MJ THE MUSICAL

This show was a surprise birthday present from my darling daughter and I didn’t even know what show I was seeing til we got to the theatre. That said, MJ The Musical will go down in birthday history! Never have I seen anything so well performed, so authentic, so complex yet so simple — and so completely entertaining to my very soul! I am a true Michael fan. So of course spending two hours with Myles Frost who is the very personification of the resurrected Michael was a phenomenal experience. But to see such a full cast of very fine actors, singers, dancers was off the charts! A complex subject written with beauty and honor and performed in the same way. Shout out to Frost, who should be receiving a Tony, and also to Tavon Olds-Sample who is truly a rising star as the young MJ! This show honors Michael in an authentic way. It shows the world why he was and is the King of Pop and the favorite son of Gary. IN. And it is a 5 star entertainment experience!!! It is unforgettable and it is an American treasure.

WAS SURPRISED BEYOND BELIEF

Saw this musical in July. We brought our 12 yr old granddaughter with us. The singing, dancing and talent of all the cast was stellar. I saw MJ live in 88’ and that was a thrill. For those who have never seen him live, this musical is for sure the next best thing. I applaud everyone who made this musical possible. My granddaughter has memories she will carry for ever. As for me, well a sore throat from all the singing and hollering. Trust me, it was worth it. Bravo and well done to all involved in bringing this magic to the stage.

OH MY GREATNESS

Everything was beyond great -- costumes, stage, surprises, sound, and more. I will return soon. Of course the Michaels used were not Michael but they represented well.

MJ, THE MUSICAL

This musical was one of the best I have seen. The young man, Christian Wilson who played young Micheal was phenomenal. Myles Frost looked like Micheal, moved smoothly like MJ and sang elegantly like MJ. He had all the mannerisms and moves to keep Michael legacy alive. All the performers were outstanding and captivated the audiences attention from start to finish. I will definitely see the musical again soon. Probably in Chicago!!!

WHAT A DISAPPOINTMENT!

I thought it was going to be good. The band is good bust the singers have no energy. The timing and some notes were off. The talk scenes are long and boring. Dancing is good. Main Michael was the worse singer of everyone. No one put any energy into the performance. I would suggest the show close, the cast rehearse another month or so, then reopen. Maybe recast some of it.

MJ

Soooo, not awful….surprisingly not better. Sat in row R but voices from cast were not projecting very well. People on cell phones, talking throughout the performance. One young gir in audience made weird noises through the whole performance….waste of money.
