The curtain will be raised at the Neil Simon Theatre tonight at 8:00 PM for the first preview of one of the most anticipated musicals in recent Broadway history: MJ, featuring Myles Frost as the iconic Michael Jackson. The culmination of years of development for the stage, MJ will take its first bows in front of a sold-out crowd of fans who have traveled from all over the United States (plus Europe, Canada, Mexico and Asia) to witness this first performance.
