Broadway-Bound Michael Jackson Bio-Musical gets title and Chicago dates

The previously announced Michael Jackson stage musical has gotten a name and a pre-Broadway premiere date: The newly titled Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough will begin performances in Chicago on October 29.

The musical, inspired by the life of the late King of Pop and featuring a book by Lynn Nottage, will run through December 1 at Chicago’s James M. Nederlander Theatre (formerly the Oriental Theatre). Playwright Nottage has won two Pulitzer Prizes for drama, the first in 2009 for Ruined and the second in 2017 for Sweat.

The title and date was announced today by producers the Michael Jackson Estate and Columbia Live Stage. Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough is set to arrive on Broadway in 2020.

Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough – currently in development and named after the hit song from Jackson’s classic 1979 album Off The Wall – will include a score consisting of Jackson songs. Christopher Wheeldon, a 2015 Tony Award winner for An American in Paris‘ choreography, will direct and choreograph.
