Thriller Live Theatre Breaks

Having a brilliant London theatre break is as easy as ABC when Thriller Live! is the show at the heart of it. The ultimate tribute to the music and moves of Michael Jackson, this all-singing, all-dancing spectacular features brilliant performers and a crack house band who take you on an exhilarating ride through more than three decades of hits by the much-missed King of Pop.

Five super-talented young singer / dancers perform as MJ. Among the current cast is Cleo Higgins, ex of ’90s pop band Cleopatra, and protégé to on TV’s The Voice. She toured with Thriller Live across the UK and Europe, winning praise for her dazzling MJ-style vocal performances.

From ABC to Blame It On the Boogie, Smooth Criminal, Beat It, Billie Jean, Heal the World and Black or White, your favourite Michael Jackson hits are here, in a show conceived and produced by Jackson superfan Adrian Grant that’s now in its 6th hit year in London.

Is It For Me?

Tribute shows can be cheesy, but this one’s different. Not only was it already on stage long before the tragic early demise of its subject, it was put there by Adrian Grant, a dedicated hardcore fan of Gary, Indiana’s favourite son who was also a personal friend of the star and who engineered a production with style and quality befitting to its subject.

Jackson’s best work is genuinely timeless and, as arguably the most influential dancer of his generation, the routines he worked so hard to perfect are now classics, and just as exciting as ever.

If you’re a serious fan, you’ll be in good company at Thriller Live, and if you’re a newcomer wondering what all the fuss was about, you’ll have your hat knocked sideways by the sheer dynamism of the music and the cast.
