An official Michael Jackson musical has been announced

'Beat It' goes Broadway. 

An official musical celebrating the life, music, and career of Michael Jackson will make its debut in 2020, helmed by the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage. 

While Jackson's hit-laden discography will feature heavily throughout, choreography will be taken care of by Tony Award-winning Christopher Wheeldon of the Royal Ballet who adapted An American In Paris into a Broadway smash. 

Backing the production is Jackson's estate and Columbia Live Stage. 

While the production is still in its early stages, it's practically undoubted that this will be a hit, and subsequently make its way across to the West End and the rest of the world.
