Written by esteemed writer Lynn Nottage with choreography by Christopher Wheeldon, the musical earned numerous accolades. MJ won four Tony Awards, three Drama Desk Awards, and an award from the Outer Critic’s Circle.
“Cleverly conceived and thrillingly performed, stunning bio-musical MJ the Musical is this year’s white-hot ticket.” says the critic from Man in Chair. “Playwright Lynn Nottage sidesteps the potential dreary linear bio-musical traps with this energetic approach, replacing the usual boredom with a vivid sense of excitement.”
Meanwhile, the New York Times wrote, “The stage patterns are far more varied and emotional than in similar musicals, scoring points without words as they deliver the thrills and, following the biomusical road map, pave the way between present and past.” Over at Deadline, the critic expressed his pleasure after seeing the musical. "Watching MJ, one easily suspects its top-flight creative team was motivated by the same fanatical drive. Aside from the pedestrian framing device, MJ pushes hard and unceasingly to move beyond the just-good-enough nostalgia that can turn even mediocre jukebox productions into crowd-pleasers. It succeeds: MJ is a wildly entertaining spectacle."
