Michael Jackson Musical “MJ” Casts Young Michaels and Young Marlon, Previews Begin December 6th
“MJ: The Michael Jackson Musical” is coming. Previews begin December 6th on Broadway.
The show announced casting today: Walter Russell III from Harlem, New York, and Christian Wilson from Norfolk, Virginia, will alternate in the role of “Little Michael.” Also announced was Devin Trey Campbell from Bronx, New York, who will play the role of “Little Marlon.”
Tickets are on sale now. So far, it’s show, but that’s par for the course along Broadway. This show will live an die on the performances. The kids will wow audiences, and if the dancing is great and the singing is right, “MJ” could be a big hit. It’s all about Michael from childhood through “Thriller,” with no bad stuff. There’s a lot of pressure on star Myles Frost, but I’ll bet he can do it.
