Myles Frost as Michael Jackson in the Broadway production of MJ.

Frost will tread the boards in MJ at the Prince Edward Theatre from Wednesday 6th March 2024, with tickets on sale now to groups of 10 or more at discounted rates (performances from 2nd September 2024).

The actor will also team up with a top creative team which features two-time Pulitzer Prize winning writer Lynn Nottage and two-time Tony Award winning director/choreographer Christopher Wheeldon.  

Myles Frost said: “Working with Chris has always been amazing. He is a visionary and knowing that we’re now going into his stomping ground, I’m ready for that ride! I’m super excited to bring this show to the West End and to make this a magical experience for everybody.”

Audiences can expect all the classic hits from Michael Jackson throughout the show.

Christopher Wheeldon said: “I am naturally thrilled to have Myles opening the London company with his knock-out award-winning performance. Myles embodies the artistic spirit of MJ but allows his own glorious talent to shine through his portrayal. Working closely with Myles to achieve this is in part what has made this show such a success on Broadway.”

Frost left school when he was cast as Jackson on Broadway after a YouTube video of him performing Billie Jean at a high school talent show drew the attention of producers. The 22-year-old went on to win the 2022 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical for his portrayal of the singer.

Centred around the ‘King of Pop’ and the making of his 1992 Dangerous World Tour, MJ is said to go beyond the singular moves and signature sound of the star to offer a rare look at the creative mind and collaborative spirit that catapulted the singer to international fame.

MJ is described as a theatrical experience like no other, with dozens of his hits included across two-and-a-half-hours, such as Billie Jean, Beat It, Man in the Mirror, Thriller and Smooth Criminal.
