MJ: The Musical

Jun 24 - Jun 29, 2025

Schuster Center

Description

He is one of the greatest entertainers of all time. Now, Michael Jackson’s unique and unparalleled artistry comes to Dayton in MJ, the multiple Tony Award®-winning musical centered around the making of the 1992 Dangerous World Tour. 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 Michael Jackson into legendary status. It’s thrilling sold out crowds on Broadway, in cities across North America, and in London’s West End… and now MJ is startin’ somethin’ in Dayton as it makes its premiere at the Schuster Center.

Age Recommendation

MJ is recommended for audiences ages 8 and up. In most cases, Broadway shows are intended for adult audiences. Dayton Live encourages you to do your research on specific titles and decide what is appropriate for you and your party before tickets are purchased. All audience members must have a ticket, regardless of age. For the consideration of all patrons, children on laps and/or babes in arms are not permitted at Dayton Live Broadway presentations.

The Saturday matinee performance will be sign interpreted and/or audio described upon request. Please let the ticket agent know at least two weeks before the performance if you would like either of these services when you order your tickets from Dayton Live. Please understand that while we will make every effort to make reasonable accommodations, certain requests may not be able to be honored.
