The King of Pop’s legacy is moonwalking to Broadway.
On Tuesday, the Michael Jackson Estate and Columbia Live Stage announced they are working on a new musical based on the icon’s life, according to Variety. The untitled project is expected to hit Broadway sometime in 2020, but it’s currently unclear which theater it will run in.
The score will draw from Jackson’s huge catalog and have a book by the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage, with choreography and direction handled by contemporary ballet superstar Christopher Wheeldon of the Royal Ballet.
