So, this show was clearly developed for a diehard Jackson fan. I myself went to see it as a fan of musicals and musical theatre, so I was more than disappointed to discover than there is absolutely no story to go along with these songs (unlike mamma Mia which is what I initially thought it resembled).

The performers were ok, the dancers certainly gave it there all but the singers to me felt... 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.

I wish I could get a refund on this show. 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. more

If you are expecting this and to hear his all time hits in the familiarity of his voice, THEN DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS SHOW. Mind as well buy his album and listen to it on your couch.

First, the costumes were horrible. They didn't represent the era of... more
