“Cleverly conceived and thrillingly performed, knockout 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 lively approach, replacing the usual tedium with a vivid sense of excitement.”
Meanwhile, the New York Times wrote, “The stage patterns are far more varied and passionate 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 delight 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 second-rate jukebox productions into crowd-pleasers. It succeeds: MJ is a incredibly entertaining spectacle."
