Michael Jackson famously sang “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough” – and the West End spectacular Thriller Live, which celebrates his musical legacy and groundbreaking dance moves, seems to be taking that message to heart, as the show’s producers have today announced a new 12-month booking period to April 1, 2018.
Thriller Live first Moonwalked into the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue in January 2009, and tonight (Wednesday 14 March) holds its 3,403rd West End performance. It holds the record as the longest ever run of a show since the theatre started entertaining the capital in December 1888, and, globally, has now been seen by over 4.2 milion people in 33 countries and played over 5,400 performances.
Thriller Live is unlike other West End musicals. There is no script or story, it is instead a eye-popping spectacular concert celebration of Michael Jackson’s music and dance legacy, bringing to life on stage his distinctive high-energy dancing and the pulsating sound of many of pop’s greatest hits. The show changes each year with new numbers added, and features specially created video footage and effects and dazzling choreography by the show’s award-winning director, Gary Lloyd.
The current Thriller Live West End company are Angelica Allen, Dajiow, Haydon Eshun, Alex Ko, John Moabi, Stefan Sinclair, Cordell Mostellar, Reece Bahia, Ione Townsend, Aisling Duffy, Florivaldo Mossi, Leslie Bowman, Ebony Clarke, Ella Coghill, Jamal Crawford, Victoria Lamm, Arnold Mabhena, Ashley-Jordon Packer, Helen Parsons, Jacinta Seivers, Steven Thompson, Tom Remaili, Sophie Usher, Aled Arhyel Charles, Roshawn Hewitt, Marcellus Virgo-Smith, Eshan Gopal, Daniel Odejinmi.
Thriller Live is also receiving rave reviews on a major UK and European tour. A new UK tour will set out in autumn, with dates soon to be announced. In April, Thriller Live will return to the People’s Republic of China, where in 2016 it was honoured to be chosen as the opening production at a brand new state-of-the-art 1,200-seat theatre at the new Parisian Hotel Macau. It will take up residency there again running to September 2017.
