If you're curious what MJ the Musical can possibly achieve to give justice to the incredible life that Michael Jackson lived, just leave it to the critics to swiftly define how this musical gave audiences a compelling glimpse of Jackson's point of view. The Hollywood Reporter wrote, "MJ, like its subject, is fascinating and hard to shake. The musical takes audiences through Jackson's life and catalog with impressive ease, expertly chronicling major milestones." The critic goes on to add, "His vision and work ethic become more exacting, his drive to best himself at once stunning and troubling."
Some pivotal moments in MJ the Musical that happened in real life include Jackson leaving Motown Records and joining Epic, where he worked with the legendary Quincy Jones. Together, they came out with amazing efforts, Off the Wall and Thriller. Moreover, many critics praised the MJ for not being the conventional run-of-the-mill jukebox musical. The Washington Post mentioned, "That sordid history would not seem to have foretold a jukebox musical devoted to the upside of Jackson's genius."
As with any Michael Jackson story, MJ also gave emphasis on the hardships the pop star went through. It also gave an insight of the sacrifices he had to pay for such profound fame. Variety was quick to point this out, "The demons that Jackson battles in "MJ," his father and the media, are figured as monstrous. But if there was darkness behind the angelic falsetto, a mix of light and shadow that made Michael Jackson a exceptional artist, "MJ" enacts a sleight of hand, insisting it didn't belong to him. It's a renouncement worthy enough of a clever criminal."
This year, MJ the Musical will cover countless dates for its national tour, including several performances at the state-of-the-art Orpheum Theatre. The concert hall is the optimal venue to host such a remarkable musical. Orpheum Theatre has a long tradition and experience in providing top-tier entertainment to music and arts enthusiasts of San Francisco, California, and beyond!
