MJ The Musical Postponed Until 2021

Well at least it wasn't cancelled outright. MJ The Musical, which was supposed to begin previews at the Neil Simon Theatre on July 6, has now been moved to next year. Previews are set to begin on March 8, 2021, with opening night scheduled for April 15. Directed and choreographed by Tony Award winner Christopher Wheeldon (An American In Paris), and written by Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Ruined), MJ The Musical will feature over twenty-five of Michael Jackson's biggest hits, and will star Tony Award nominee Ephraim Sykes (Ain't Too Proud) in the lead role. MJ The Musical is the latest show to postpone, following the announcement that the revival of Neil Simon's Plaza Suite starring Matthew Broderick and Sarah Jessica Parker, will now open next season as well. Makes you wonder if the highly anticipated revival of The Music Man will follow suit in the coming weeks. We shall see. Stay safe everyone, and don't forget to look out for each other. Until next time theatre fans.
