Thriller Live is unlike other West End musicals. There is no script or story. Instead, it is an eye-popping 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.

Thriller Live opened at the Lyric Theatre on Shaftesbury Avenue in January 2009 and now 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 4.5 milion people in 33 countries and played over 6,100 performances worldwide, never failing to get a standing ovation!
