Thriller Live Tickets
What's it all about?
You already know the Michael Jackson story, so this show doesn’t waste time telling you about the master of the moonwalk. Instead, Thriller Live gives you what you really came for – the music.
Tune after tune is belted out, from his early days in The Jackson 5 to his exceptional solo career. And the dance sequences are something else. It’s like seeing one of his music videos brought to life, complete with MJ’s trademark toe-stand, gravity-defying leans and, of course, the crotch grab.
You'll be left in no doubt that he truly was the King of Pop.
What's the story?
This isn't so much a story as a celebration of the most successful entertainer of all time. And while Thriller Live doesn’t run through the facts of his life, you certainly get taken on a journey through music history, from Motown and blues to early indie and pop.
But the real story here is the one behind the show. If you think you’re the world’s biggest Michael Jackson fan, think again. Way back in 1988, Adrian Grant, the man behind Thriller Live, was so taken with the singer that he launched the world’s first MJ fanzine. Within two years, it had a circulation of 25,000 people, leading to an invitation to Neverland and a lifelong friendship.
Who's in it?
With Thriller Live, you get not one Michael Jackson, but five – and one of them is a woman. Trenyce Cobbins certainly deserves her place among the boys, having reached the top five in American Idol. Meanwhile, her co-star Haydon Eshun (another Simon Cowell discovery) was hailed as the new MJ when he was just 9 years old.
And it’s lucky he’s that good because the songs he and the rest of the cast get to sing are the best in Jackson’s back catalogue, from 'ABC' to 'Blame It On the Boogie', 'Smooth Criminal', 'Beat It', 'Billie Jean', 'Heal the World' and 'Black or White'. You even get to join in when they do 'Shake Your Body Down'.
Who is Thriller Live suitable for?
If you never got to see the great man perform or are simply in desperate need of an MJ fix, this is the show for you.
Whatever your age, you’ll be thrilled to hear the songs you love performed live on stage – an experience matched only by the stunning costumes, dazzling dance numbers and all the singer’s signature moves.

Thriller Live reviews - staff
The re-enacted routines for Smooth Criminal, Billie Jean and Thriller were spot on. I did prefer it when the singers performed the songs their own way instead of trying to imitate Michael Jackson. I think the dancing in this show is the highest standard I’ve seen in anything in the West End. Definitely worth seeing.
If you're a Michael Jackson fan, you'll love the atmosphere of Thriller Live. The lead singers do an admirable job paying tribute to their idol, but lead singer Trenyce Cobbins absolutely steals the show with her powerhouse vocal. Although songs from his last two albums are omitted, you aren't disappointed as 'Thriller', 'Billie Jean', 'Bad' and 'Beat It' are all there in their glory. Act II is just superhit after superhit.
The production was very excitable and entertaining and brought back some good memories when listening to the different songs from Michael Jackson. I loved the fact that the cast at times involved the audience and encouraged us to have a good time. I must say that the cast member who truly brought Michael back to life was absolutely sensational. He truly mastered Michaels unique steps and was captivating. The singing and dancing was lively and entertaining, although at times it seemed like there was too many people on the stage at once and it was distracting. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed the show and felt that it finished too soon.
The show is perfect for a Michael Jackson fan. It's a musical biography of the artist, the performers are amazing, especially the young Michael. Coreography, costumes and scenery are appropiate for the Live show purpose.

One big singing and dancing party, enjoyed by myself and my 11 year old son.
overall the show was brilliant with a great atmosphere, however from the perspective of a regular theatre goer and mum of children who have been at well known dance schools, i was a bit disappointed at a couple of the artists whose singing and dancing were not what i would have expected from performers in top London shows. Still we thoroughly enjoyed it and the package was excellent value for money, would definitely book again
Thriller Live was an amazing show and reminded me of how many great hits Michael Jackson released and why he was such a music legend. All the singers and dancers on the show were awesome and at times if you closed your eyes you thought you were hearing Jacko live. That is a massive compliment but that is how good the singers were!
Good value for money. First half entertaining but second half was fantastic. It wasn't what I thought a chronological telling of MJ's life and music it was more a dance and singing extravaganza. Out of the 6 MJ's the little one was Phenomenal as was the one woman of the four men one (the one pictured here) was utterly brilliant both his dancing and singing were convincing the other three men should in my opinion not have been involved. All in all I enjoyed it and would go again.
We weren't entirely sure what to expect but we did think maybe it would be a man impersonating Michael and singing his hits and it being about his life story, so to be honest we are sorry to say that we found the show a bit disappointing as it is a group of different people singing his hits even a woman!! There were four men, only 2 of which were really any good and although the woman had a good voice we agreed there was no place for her in the show it was not apt, and it was not really suitable for her to sing 2 of his biggest and my favourite hits being PYT and The way you make you feel!! so were entirely disappointed by this.. The young boy who played the younger Michael was great but the overall choreography was very amateurish, showy and sloppy, nowhere near upto Michael Jacksons standard himself whoch it should have been if the show is based on him... Would give a 4/5 out of 10..
Is anything more spine-tingling than hearing the audience murmur drop to a hush and seeing the house lights go down? Can anything beat the thrill of watching the actors emerge from the wings, ready to give the performance of a lifetime?
At TheatrePeople.com we love these moments more than anything, and we want you to enjoy your live theatre experience just as much.

Did You Know?
When Michael Jackson died in June 2009, the theatre where Thriller Live is showing became a mecca for bereaved fans. For days afterwards, the Lyric Theatre was inundated with legions of visitors leaving tributes, cards and flowers.
According to Kenny Ortega, the choreographer behind the doomed This Is It tour, MJ was planning to visit Thriller Live when he came over to London. But even if he had, you might not have known you were in the presence of greatness because the eccentric star intended to come in disguise.
The moonwalk was inspired by the great French mime artist Marcel Marceau’s “walking against the wind” skit.
