The four-time Tony Award-winning musical MJ is over a year old. Happy anniversary. A first anniversary, on Broadway, is a special celebration.  Audience members in attendance on that day were gifted a special edition merch item, and the cast celebrated on stage with a giant MJ-themed cake. The smash hit musical continues to play to sold-out audiences and has broken the box office record at the Neil Simon Theatre 10 times. It is the most Tony Award-winning musical of the 2021-2022 season.

Directed and choreographed by two-time Tony Award winner Christopher Wheeldon, with a book written by two-time Pulitzer Prize® winner Lynn Nottage, MJ is the winner of four 2022 Tony Awards, including Best Leading Actor in a Musical (Myles Frost) and Best Choreography (Wheeldon).

Tickets are available at Ticketmaster.com and at the Neil Simon box office.

MJ features scenic design by Tony Award winner Derek McLane, lighting design by Tony Award winner Natasha Katz, costume design by Tony Award winner Paul Tazewell, sound design by Olivier & Tony Award winner Gareth Owen, projection design by Peter Nigrini, hair & wig design by Charles Lapointe, musical supervision/orchestration/arrangements by David Holcenberg, and musical direction/orchestrations/arrangements by Jason Michael Webb.
