Ambitious, Great writing, Great staging, Great singing, Entertaining

See it if you appreciate musicals with a good story that weave well-known pop music with excellent choreography, dynamic sound, lighting & costumes.

Don’t see it if you expect the full MJ story - this is a slice of family dynamics, artist creativity and demanding work before much of the controversy.

Great dancing, Great staging, Great singing, Entertaining, Absorbing

See it if Enjoyable performance w/ Elijah Rhea Johnson, as well as the two younger actors who played MJ. Especially liked Apollo Levine who seamlessly

Don’t see it if Annoying blocking w/reporter character in the way, when MJ finds his Thriller style & lyrics w/ the famous red jacket. Still worth seeing.
