    Thriller Live Becomes The 17th Longest Running West End Musical Of All Time
    http://www.indielondon.co.uk/Theatre...al-of-all-time



    THRILLER Live, the West End concert spectacular, has played its 2,901st performance at the Lyric Theatre, thereby passing Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita, which opened in 1978, to become the 17th Longest Running West End Musical of all time.

    Thriller Live is currently booking until September 4, 2016. It will start its 8th year in the West End in January and will soon pass another major landmark – 3,000 West End performances.

    Thriller Live has now taken more than $150million at the global box office.

    Producers Paul Walden & Derek Nicol said: “Becoming the 17th Longest Running West End Musical of all time is yet another amazing milestone in the history of our show. Very few productions have ever run this long in the West End and we are grateful to the fans of Michael Jackson who have taken the show to their hearts.”

    Thriller Live looks very different to the version that first opened in the West End in January, 2009. A brand new version of the show, with four new songs, a new opening, new production elements including new video, new costumes and special effects, opened last month.

    Thriller Live continues to set and break records and play new territories around the globe. In 2016, Egypt will become the 32nd country to premiere the show.

    Thriller Live Moonwalks Celebrates Its 3,000 Show On The West End

    Posted on March 17, 2016

    The cast of Thriller Live celebrated in style last night as the show marked its 3,000th performance in the West End with a spectacular cake and an American-themed party at Planet Hollywood.

    The cast and creative team celebrated the news with a 3-tier cake topped with a figure of Michael Jackson himself.

    Producers Paul Walden & Derek Nicol said: “We are thrilled thatThriller Live continues to rock the West End, delighting audiences of all nationalitites in its 8th record-breaking year at the Lyric Theatre.”

    Thriller Live is unlike other West End musicals. There is no script or story, it is instead a eye-popping spectacular concert celebration of Michael Jackson’s music and dance legacy, bringing to life on stage his distinctive high-energy dancing and the pulsating sound of many of pop’s greatest hits. The show changes each year with new numbers added, and features specially created video footage and effects and dazzling choreography by the show’s award-winning director, Gary Lloyd.

    Thriller Live recently passed Tim Rice and Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Evita, which opened in 1978, to become the 17th Longest Running West End Musical of all time. It has now been been seen by over three million people worldwide and is currently touring the UK.

    Thriller Live has taken more than $150 million at the global box office and continues to set and break records and visit new territories. To date it has now performed to standing ovations in 32 countries from South Korea to Norway, and South America to China.

    In London, Thriller Live is also the longest-running production in the Lyric Theatre’s 125-year history. It moonwalked into the West End after three acclaimed UK tours. When Michael Jackson died, the Lyric became a focus for fans from all over the world, who created a massive shrine of flowers, candles, and tributes.
