My daughter took me to see this show last night, 12th December. We had a lovely meal in London before the show, really looking forward to it. I am sorry to say that it appears to be a very low budget show with very high price tickets. My daughter paid £60 for each ticket!! My 13 year old grandson could have put on a better show at his school! A disgrace to the name of the great Michael Jackson!! I agree with another review, he would be turning in his grave! What a shame.

Our expectations were so high, immediately we were surprised by the 3 first songs, thinking the legend will be revealed with more power on the next part... No it was even worse. Watching a "best of" music video compilation would've been a better idea.

The choreographer probably did not realize the extreme perfectionist character of Michael Jackson. Here you have not even the level of a high School students show. It s like a real bad representation for a Tv show for an audience in the end of the country.

No sense of aestheticism, no costume, no elaborations ... It was very sad how they kill the legend of The King of Rock Pop & Soul, the master entertainer.

We did not understand how this show is still running after 7 years... Perhaps the crime can be paid when it was built on the shadows of the real artist. MJ will be turning in his grave at this tragedy.

Please avoid to support so much talentless sabotage.

I am astonished at the good reviews. This was awful. A second rate tribute band. This isn't theatre; it's a sort of show which doesn't have an ambition or a storyline or anything to explain why you just get a series of Jackson hits, but not very well done. A few of the dancers were fantastic. Most of the many MJ singers (why so many? Why a female?) cannot dance. None of the good dancers can sing.far worse, the cast tried to milk the audience by cajoling them into whoops and a pathetic dance move. Excruciatingly embarrassing. We left in the interval. Went to a great cocktail bar and had a brilliant second half of the evening.

On Saturday 8th August went to see the show. BRILLIANT, FANTASTIC, FABULOUS, STUPENDOUS, Thriller Show, could go on for ever, still buzzing. It was so good I felt really emotional, all the singers ,dancers, musicians, and everyone concerned gave it there all. Second row back in the stalls ,felt part of the show. Sore throat from singing and shouting, sore hands from clapping. Happy Days

I was lucky enough to see MJ at Wembley in his heyday and was an avid 80s fan, maybe my expectations were a little high, he was a master, his music and dance moves iconic, is there really going to be a small theatre dance troup who can replicate that? No is the simple answer!

From the very first off key note to the embarrassing shouty female singer.. Female singer???? Why ? I asked myself several times and can only sumise that as an ex artist, she is the only celebrity they could afford.

This is an overpriced poor in places tribute act. A self congratulating,poor mans interpretation.. In a word.. Sad!

And if you are in the balcony, although you have an amazing view of the entire cast and set, when they get everyone standing, you can only see the ceiling and if the cast use the elevated bridge, you can only see feet.. It didn't detract from a mediocre show.

I would watch this every night of the week. I have rarely witnessed a show that had me on my feet for the whole performance. No show is perfect. What makes it so memorable is that any flaw adds to the experience. The effort put into "Thriller Live" wipes away these so called flaws and I was standing to give an ovation after 20 minutes and I'm 58. (And a bloke). If I didn't live 150 miles from London I would be buying tickets 'till the bailiffs turned up. Absolutely fantastic. Lyric Theatre 1 July 2015
