    That would be perfect! One Night Only kind of performance maybe. But sure is essential to tell his story.

    In my opinion it's just milking Michael. The artist himself is gone, and with him is any interest I have in projects that he is not involved in/ has no say in. That said, if peeps get to know his music through Broadway, good for them, I guess. I couldn't care for the Las Vegas show, so I'll see with this Broadway production.

    Broadway presence is not a bad thing.. if it's for money or whatever reason.. a broadway show representing Michael in a positive light.. come on how are we gonna bring out the bad in everything?

    My thoughts exactly - a musical about MJ can not be made without Childhood...

    It's beyond me too… This is a great move from the Estate - and a great way to both make money (as they should and need to!) but do it in a respectful way and make people know more about MJ - both his life and his music.

    It's a win-win-win all the way around. - This and Cirque Du Soleil is propably the best decisions The Estate has made IMO. - It's entertaining and great - just like MJ wanted it. - He would be very proud I'm sure to have his own musical on Broadway.
    https://www.youtube.com/user/Ahess/videos - me dancing MJ - many years ago.

    I would be really glad if you rated or/and commented the videos. Thanks

    It`s a great move and hopefully as great as MJOne or even greater.
    I did not see one review from a fan or a person other who saw MJOne, who was disappointed. It must be a sensational show and far better than the Immortal-World-Tour.

    Of course Michael would be very proud. He was a fan of broadway!

    And for those who complain about the estate only doing this for money well... that's a good thing, we do realize that the more successful (money making) projects the estate takes part of helps right?

    Any project we want takes funding, and the more money they make from MJ projects the more insured they'll be to do more projects and feel comfortable enough to invest into more stuff..

    I know where you're coming from and I definitely felt that way about the animated special (which I still haven't seen). But to me the Broadway show idea works fine without Michael's direct input - I don't think it's necessary. To me, an outsider's perspective may even be more effective where a theatre production of this ilk is concerned. I think I look at the theatre/stage productions like MJ One and this as a tribute by nature, on a grand scale, and that's something I absolutely want to see. Whereas the animated special to me was trying to come off as something Michael 'would have done' or 'started the idea of but didn't finish'.

    My only hope is that they do Michael's name justice and have a hit which is no easy feat. I do wonder where this will leave Thriller Live though IF this new show is a success.

    Lol well I just think the estate gets too much crap.. dont get me wrong, there a been stuff that I've found upsetting and theres alot i would change..

    I just cant sit there and pretend I know better and would do better when I have no idea what sitting in those seats really means in the big scheme of things.. I do know that many fans of celebs that pass have issues with the people that manage that artists work/projects..

    It's more so the phenomenon of "he/she would not want it this way if they were here" over actually doing a bad job.. we always feel like we know what's best for Michael's legacy because in some regard hes our baby and we want to take care of what he leaves behind..

    Everyone has different "parenting" skills

    You feel that they are "milking" Michael? Well, I get what you are saying. But we cannot bring Michael back. And this decision to put his life in a play won't be destructive as longa s they stay true to the story and do the best they can. It seems positive. But if you don't want to give your money to the Estate (they have not always been fair to Michael), it's best to ignore this event.

    Thriller Live has been going strong for many years - it began before Michael passed away - and is based in London if I'm not mistaken. Broadway is in New York, so I really don't think that a Broadway musical will harm the bottom line of Thriller Live. All it does is allow broader access (for audiences) to Michael's life story and his music, which can only be a good thing, when the right professionals are involved at the concept and creation phases.

    Absolutely. People forget that one of the key objectives of the Estate is to generate income and this is done, partly through new (and successful) projects. This is how debt has been paid off, charities supported, lawsuits funded and the lives of the heirs enriched.
    The Estate pays for many incidentals that most fans aren't aware of, as well - Joe Jackson's medical care, for example.

    Yeah I'm sound with my geography. Shows that do well on Broadway tend to make their way to the West End in London as well. And shows that do well in London's West End tend to go on tour and play theatres throughout the UK. This would put the Broadway show directly in competition with Thriller Live - a show the Estate do not profit from but have permitted the use of Michael's music in (as is my understanding).

    This scenario of course relies on the Broadway show being a big hit, which I think I had indicated.
