My husband and I thought this show was excellent!! We are born in mid 70s and from the US. We knew pretty much every MJ song! I was impressed that it took 5 singers to cover all his musical talents. Dancing, choreography, costumes and lighting were all excellent. We had a really fun time!Read More

DONT WASTE YOUR TIME OR YOUR MONEY ON THIS SHOW. It's not going to be the awesome songs that sounded anything like MJ's voice.

The female singer looked 5 months pregnant. The costumes were awful and the singing was just as bad.

I wish I could get a refund on this show.Read More

Really wanted to like the show but if I can take one thought home- it's Michael Jackson is so awesome they needed 5 different people to impersonate him. The show is super boring despite the performers tried hard.

The whole show was terrible. Not sure why the girl sang most of the songs. Karaoke session for 3 hrs. Zzzzz

Jersey boys was soooo much better.Read More
