Thriller the musical takes on London’s Lyric Theatre
Over a year after Michael Jackson’s untimely passing, the Lyric Theatre is gearing up to host its latest musical, Thriller.
Running from 9 September until 22 October 2010, the musical will feature a variety of the King of Pop’s most famous hits including Beat It, Show You The Way To Go, Billie Jean and Rock With You. Sponsored by Sony BMG, the showcase will be the first live theatre production to celebrate Jackson’s life and work.
To commemorate the iconic event, discountvouchers.co.uk has teamed up with lastminute.com to offer a new promotion featuring tickets to the show and dinner at the equally famous Planet Hollywood. A product of London’s famous Shaftsbury Avenue theatre, the Lyric Theatre will run the production for more than a month as UK audiences line up to see the musical.
Being heralded as a high-octane, live performance, Thriller will feature both interpretations of Jackson’s acclaimed music and a closer look at the Pop legend’s life. With performances including Jackson’s early career with his brothers in the Jackson 5, the show will blend his innovative dance moves and his distinctive sounds in a showcase directed by Gary Lloyd. Celebrating the pop star’s nearly 40-year career, the musical was offered the permanent spot at the theatre after a short tour of Europe earned the show high acclaim. Michael Jackson remains the only artist to sell more than 750 million records around the world and Thriller currently holds the honour of number one highest selling album of all time to this day.
