He is one of the greatest entertainers of all time. Now, Michael Jackson’s unique and unparalleled artistry comes to Cincinnati as MJ, the multi Tony Award®-winning new musical centered around the making of the 1992 Dangerous World Tour, begins a tour of its own. Created by Tony Award®-winning Director/Choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage, MJ goes beyond the singular moves and signature sound of the star, offering a rare look at the creative mind and collaborative spirit that catapulted Michael Jackson into legendary status. MJ is startin’ somethin’ as it makes its Ohio premiere at the Aronoff Center in September 2023 and Helen Lee Gentry Scholarship Fund hosts the MJ Theater Outing Fundraiser on Sunday, September 17, 2023 for the final show of the engagement!
MJ focuses on Michael Jackson’s rehearsals leading up to his Dangerous world concert tour. It also reflects on his childhood and early career. MJ is recommended for ages 8 and up.
