The Michael Jackson bio-musical has firmed its arrival on Broadway.
MJ the Musical -- previously titled Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough -- will begin previews at the Neil Simon Theater on July 6th, 2020. The official opening is set for August 13th.
Currently in development in New York, the show has to hope for better luck than the venue's previous tenant -- The Cher Show lasted just eight-and-a-half months.
According to Playbill, a preview run this fall at Chicago's Nederlander Theatre was scrapped. Skepticism over the show's subject matter in light of the various abuse allegations against Jackson were a key factor.
Casting for the Broadway production has not been announced.
