A new musical about the life and work of Michael Jackson is set to hit Broadway in the summer of 2020 despite abuse allegations against the late King of Pop.
Earlier this year, Jackson’s estate had called off pre-Broadway shows in Chicago of the new musical, originally titled “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.”
According to the producers of the show, the decision to change the plans was due to “scheduling difficulties” caused by a labor dispute.
However, Jackson’s estate has now officially announced that the renamed musical, “MJ: The Musical,” is set to open on Broadway in New York next summer.
“MJ The Musical has announced where and when it is coming to Broadway. It will be in the Neil Simon Theatre and opening night has been set for August 13, 2020 at 6:30 pm with previews starting July 6. Tickets go on sale January 15, 2020,” Jackson’s estate tweeted.
The plans to run the musical, written by Lynn Nottage and directed and choreographed by Christopher Wheeldon, come despite child abuse allegations made in HBO‘s controversial documentary Leaving Neverland.
