Michael Jackson Musical ‘Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough’ coming to Broadway

Last summer, the Michael Jackson estate and Columbia Live Stage announced that they were developing a new stage musical inspired by the life of the dead pop star. On Wednesday, they confirmed it will be titled Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough. The production will have its out-of-town premiere in Chicago (beginning October 29th and running through December 1st) at the James M. Nederlander Theatre, before transferring to Broadway some time in 2020. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage (Sweat in 2017, Ruined in 2009) will pen the book, and Tony-winning choreographer Christopher Wheeldon (An American in Paris) will direct and choreograph the show. The score will comprise hits from across Jackson’s massive catalogue.
