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.

Thriller Live first Moonwalked into the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue in 2009 and it holds the record as the longest ever run of a show since the theatre started entertaining the capital in December 1888.

Thriller Live has now been seen by over five million people in 37 countries and played over 7,000 performances worldwide, never failing to get a standing ovation!
