The special show saw 170 previous West End and tour cast members including original 2009 cast members ‘Ben Forster’ and original young ‘MJ Layton Williams’ invited back on stage to perform ‘Man in the Mirror’ and ‘Black Or White’ along side the current cast.
I could see, hear and feel all the love from everyone who has been part of this show from the second I walked in to the theatre. The audience were buzzing and dancing in the aisles. If you have not seen ‘Thriller Live’, it is like watching live music videos of hit after hit from the King of Pop. Performed by such a talented cast and live band. This show really is such a celebration of Micheal Jackson and his work.
At the end of Tuesdays’s ‘Thriller Live’ there were some lovely speeches from the creative team.
In the speeches ‘Adrian Grant’ ( creator and exec’ director) treated us all to a couple of his personal stories of his time with Michael, which were lovely to hear and proof that the show was born out of nothing but Love for ‘Michael Jackson’. ‘Gary Lloyd’ (Director and Choreographer), ‘Paul Walden’ and ‘Derek Nicol’ (the Producers) also gave thanks and paid tribute to all who had been part of ‘Thriller Live’ and there were some high emotions on the stage for those speeches. (I am sure you can find the video online of the speeches).
