In 2021, the King of Pop was officially resurrected on the Great White Way. "MJ the Musical" opened to rave reviews as it took audiences into rehearsals for the 1992 Dangerous World Tour. After years of allegations and hiding from the press, Michael Jackson allows MTV to film a two-day documentary as he prepares for his second headlining international jaunt. What follows is a moonwalk down memory lane and an eruption of song and stagecraft as entrancing as the entertainer himself. Here are our top four froggy reasons why you should see "MJ the Musical" on Broadway!

Top Reasons to See "MJ" on Broadway

1. Selections from Michael's thrilling musical catalog

They don't call it a jukebox musical for nothing! The high-energy earworms of "MJ the Musical" will have you wanting to get out of your seat and dance in the aisles. Featuring over 25 of Jackson's greatest hits, this Broadway show feels more like a concert at times with the rockin' beats, powerful vocals and electric energy his fans came to know and love. From "Billie Jean" and "Bad" to "I Want You Back" and "I'll Be There," you'll surely leave the theater with at least a handful of songs stuck in your head.

2. A captivating reflection of the man in the mirror

Baring it all for the camera, Jackson takes the documentary crew (and the audience) back to a place in his life that even diehard fans may not know about. From his childhood in the spotlight as part of the Jackson 5 to the height of his superstardom in the days leading up to the Dangerous World Tour, the musical offers a rare look at the creative mind and collaborative spirit that crowned him the King of Pop. Be sure to bring tissues!

3. Smooth, Tony Award-winning choreography

A Michael Jackson musical would be nothing without the singer's iconic dance moves. That's why director and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon brought on Rich and Tone Talauega to the creative team — two dancers from Michael's HIStory World Tour who continued to dance and choreograph for him once the tour ended. Wheeldon masterfully melded their encyclopedic knowledge of Michael's movement language with his creative lens to devise jaw-dropping musical staging that forces the audience to believe the King of Pop is living, breathing and dancing his heart out up on stage.

4. Costumes that can't be beat

A fedora. A glove. A red leather jacket. A royal blue button-down over a white T-shirt. All of Michael's instantly recognizable clothes and accessories have been beautifully recreated by Tony Award-winning costume designer Paul Tazewell ("Hamilton," Steven Spielberg's "West Side Story") and rightfully are given their time to shine ... all leading up to the dazzling gold-embellished jacket that kicked off that biggest tour any performer had ever down in history at that point.
