Imagine being a part of a show about arguably the greatest performer in history:

"Centered around the making of his 1992 Dangerous World Tour, and 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 Jackson into legendary status."

What roles are the open auditions for?

THE role! Producers are looking for actors to play two roles: MJ and Young Michael. Those who wish to audition are expected to have Michael Jackson or Jackson 5 song prepared.

  • MICHAEL – Michael Jackson in his twenties, great singer/dancer/actor
  • YOUNG MICHAEL – Michael Jackson at age 10, great singer/dancer/actor

It might not be as easy as 1, 2, 3, so bring your A-game! The actors who will be selected for the show will be future understudies for the current actors in the Broadway production and touring companies!
