    I don't know if someone already posted. According to Roger Friedman...

    [...] But without Sykes, there’s no draw from the show. It’s just about Michael Jackson. And so far, ticket sales are grim. They’re not moving. At all. A look through Ticketmaster reveals seas of blue dots, meaning unsold seats, every night from the beginning of previews in December through opening night in February.[...]

    Hope this show will debut on stage as Michael Jackson deserves. I would have considered the hypothesis of a show in Europe instead in US.

    I also hope the musical debuts. A lot of fans forget that if this musical fails the media will call it a Michael Jackson failure and NOT an Estate failure. For those that are against the Estate, please remember that fact.

    Advance Sales for Michael Jackson Broadway Musical “MJ” Suffering Even Though King of Pop’s Record Sales are Soaring

    by Roger Friedman - July 26, 2021 1:53 pm



    https://www.showbiz411.com/2021/07/2...es-are-soaring

    “MJ: The Michael Jackson Musical” is suffering at the box office.

    Advance sales are very poor so far because tourists are restricted from traveling to New York.

    Most travelers from European countries, Britain, and many other countries are banned from entering the US right now depending on vaccinations, etc.

    The result is all Broadway shows are suffering a lack of advanced sales. “MJ” isn’t alone, but the news isn’t good.

    Aside from a couple of well sold Saturday nights in December, the shows are largely empty so far. On Ticketmaster.com, the seat maps are seas of blue dots waiting for purchase.

    A website called StacyKnows.com just sent out a message saying they have a chunk of tickets available for December 9th, for $140. The first preview, on December 6th, still has a number of seats for sale.

    It’s surprising, too, because Michael Jackson is on target to sell almost a million albums this year, half of which are copies of “Thriller.” His popularity is not an issue.

    But the tourism restrictions, the prices, and fear of sitting in theaters is clearly inhibiting audiences from making plans.

    Broadway: Michael Jackson Musical Sets Cast, Reveals Characters Including Jackson 5, Berry Gordy, and Michael’s Parents




    The cast and characters for “MJ: The Michael Jackson Musical” were revealed this morning.

    We now know who the main characters are in the story. They include Michael, his parents, the Jackson 5, and Motown founder Berry Gordy.

    So far not included in the characters list are people like Diana Ross, or Bobby Taylor, who discovered the Jackson 5 with Gladys Knight and brought them to Gordy. They may very well not be in this story.

    There are no marquee names on the cast list, but these people are no doubt incredibly talented. They include:

    Myles Frost plays Michael. Quentin Earl Darrington as Joseph Jackson / Rob, Whitney Bashor as Rachel, Gabriel Ruiz as Alejandro, Antoine L. Smith as Berry Gordy / Nick, Joey Sorge as Dave, John Edwards as Jackie Jackson / Ensemble, Ayana George as Katherine Jackson, Apollo Levine as Quincy Jones / Tito Jackson, Tavon Olds-Sample as Michael, Lamont Walker II as Jermaine Jackson / Ensemble, Zelig Williams as Marlon Jackson / Ensemble, with Raymond Baynard, Kali May Grinder, Oyoyo Joi, Carina-Kay Louchiey, Renni Anthony Magee, Aaron James McKenzie, Aramie Payton, Kamille Upshaw, Ryan VanDenBoom, and Darius Wright rounding out the ensemble.

    “MJ” starts previews December 6th and opens February 1st. Again, the people putting the show together are among the best on Broadway, including producer Lia Vollack and her husband, the great Tony winning set designer Derek McLane. Lynn Nottage wrote the book, Christopher Wheeldon is the director/choreographer.

    Everyone involved is top notch. So if this show doesn’t work, with all of Michael’s hits and Jackson 5 singles, etc. it’s time to go home!

    God, I thank you for allowing Michael to continue to watch over his children:

    Prince Michael, Paris, and Blanket ("Bigi").
