Are people excited for the MJ broadway album? Since it's not Michael singing it doesn't really excite me.
Good for them. Probably nothing I would purchase but think it’s great!

They’re performing “Smooth Criminal” at the Tonys tonight! They haven’t confirmed it, but they’re doing a lot of behind the scenes promo on their Instagram and I recognize the costumes.
oh! That's so exciting!! I've been trying to imagine which they might perform. I was hoping for the Thriller reprise or the Earth Song/They Don't Care About Us bit (though that would have been super bold lol)....very excited to hear it's Smooth Criminal though! Everyone loves Smooth Criminal :)

The Tonys pre-show ceremony is almost over, and MJ has already won three of its 10 nominations:

1. Best Choreography
2. Best Sound Design of a Musical
3. Best Lighting Design of a Musical

Fingers crossed that Myles brings home the coveted Best Actor!

I am so happy for Myles and the other winners. This musical is doing wonders for Michael’s legacy and I am SO GLAD that MJ Estate decided to do it. I believe in giving credit when credit is due. THE MJ MUSICAL WAS A GREAT IDEA! I am not afraid to admit or state that fact. Everything about this project has been professionally done, promoted and executed.👏👏👏👏

I couldn't get the hype of the musical until I saw these videos, they are great! It's a nice tribute to Michael and I can't wait to see more! Does anyone know if the musical is ever coming out on YT/Streaming/Blu-Ray and if so, at what date?

Another question, is there an amateur recording of Price Of Fame? It's the song I was most excited in hearing but it's unfortunately not coming out on the album...

This is the first time I am seeing real snippets of the musical, and I am blown away. He has done really good job. Feels like he would have poured our hours after hours of Michael's performances, and really internalised them. There were already a couple of moments that totally reminded me of Michael's actual performance. I still don't know if I can emotionally handle watching it though. Already wishing so much that Michael was somewhere in this world watching his legacy come to life like this :(

So far as I know, there isn’t a full amateur recording yet (though I’m consistently on the lookout for one). I wouldn’t hold your breath with “Price of Fame” though; it’s maybe a minute long, and is one of the few inclusions I don’t think entirely works.

I also wouldn’t expect a full filmed version anytime soon. Broadway shows are notorious for milking shows until they’re dry before capturing them on film. I do suspect that they filmed the entire thing already though, in order to preserve Myles as MJ, hence why we’ve gotten two full songs.
