Michael Jackson’s Thriller is coming to Broadway. Producer James L. Netharlander says that he’s acquired the rights to produce a stage show based on the Jackson mega single, that will feature songs from two of the king of pop’s iconic albums.
Tom Thome, a spokesman for Michael Jackson tells the AP, “The Nederlanders and Michael Jackson represent live theater and musical excellence, so let the music begin,”
Netherlander, who heads up a company which owns nine Broadway theaters, had this to say about making this project happen; “I love the idea of making ‘Thriller’ a musical. Girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy has big secret, now what?”
