The iconic life story of the King of Pop is moonwalking its way onto the stage.
The estate of Michael Jackson and Columbia Live Stage announced a musical based on the music icon featuring his own best-selling hits.
The musical production is expected to arrive in 2020.
According to Playbill, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage (Sweat, Ruined) will pen the book for the musical.
‘An American in Paris’ Tony winner, Christopher Wheeldon has signed to direct and choreograph.
No further details have been released on casting or the title of the show.
The new stage musical will be a new venture for the entertainment icon’s estate.
In recent years, the estate has sanctioned two Cirque du Soleil shows, Michael Jackson: The Immortal World Tour and Michael Jackson: One.
