You can count me among those who will not be seeing this. At least based on my understanding that this is meant to be a celebration of his life and music. If it's meant to be a well rounded exploration of his highs and lows, including the abuses he suffered as a child, and his journey to being the abuser himself, I might feel differently. The Playbill article calls it a "bio musical". Not sure what that suggests.

I loved his songs as a kid. Sometimes a song from the Thriller album comes on shuffle and I think fondly of who I was and where I was in my life when I first enjoyed it. I can't undo that connection. But I wouldn't want to celebrate this particular artist today.

It helps that I don't like jukebox musicals much. We feel particularly saturated right now in my opinion, with Tina, MJ, Jagged, and Ain't Too Proud.
