A musical about Michael Jackson’s life is being developed for an expected 2020 Broadway opening. The show is being written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage and will be directed and choreographed by ballet dancer-turned Tony-winning choreographer/director Christopher Wheeldon.
The show marks the first time a Broadway-bound musical authorized by Jackson’s estate will be produced. The score is expected to be filled with Jackson’s music, although which hits will be included hasn’t been confirmed yet.
