Fantastic, real feel good show. The cast were amazing as were the band. and jacko...well, what can I say, the next best thing. The only downside is how busy the area is, every restaraunt within a mile is jam packed so if you want to eat, do it early or outside the area. Kids will love it if they liked michael and love the music. Great choreography. Loved it...

Went to see thriller live at the liric on 28 Feb 2014

It was very very good, at first I didn't know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised at the energy and dedication of the dancers and singers. They went from the Motown days ABC - I want you back ext through the disco then moved through all his hits. It was a stunning tribute to MJ and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good night out. WELL WORTH IT

Does anyone know the name of the star who played Michael Jackson as an adult at the Lyric Thursday 13th February 2014. I think his dancing, moves, and voice is simply stunning. He was my very favourite in the show, but having bought the programme I cannot see his name listed. STUNNING SHOW!!!

Would love to know, regards Lucia

Disappointed with a show I was so looking forward to as a Michael Jackson fan since the Jackson 5. I found the show very disjointed. A woman taking centre stage singing MJ's songs and at one stage three people all singing one of his hits together was weird especially when a MJ look a like was standing there. The dancing was bad, apart from the moonwalking and the acrobatic moves of a few of the cast, the dancers looked like they were just going through the motions, no enthusiasm and definately not the right type of dancing. They really should have used street dancers like divercity. The best part of the show was when they had a Michael Jackson look a like taking centre stage, which is what I thought it was all about. When they divided the audience into two sides and had us waving our arms in the air I thought I was at a pantomime. I can appreciate that they will not find someone who looks, sings and moves like MJ, but they should have had a street dancer dressed like Jackson either miming or had singers to the side not taking up centre stage. I would not recommend this show. I was tempted to leave in the interval but did stay to the end hoping it would improve.

Just brilliant. One of the best shows I have seen. Good dancing, singing, music and atmosphere. Just brilliant cast. I have been to see this show 3 times , planning my next one already. Will go to watch this show again and again. Didn't want the show to end . What a fantastic show in the memory of Michael Jackson. Well done to all involved in producing this show. Keep it going!

Very disappointed with the show. The dancing was poor, what you would expect to see at a holiday camp. Can't get my head around there being 4 Michael Jackons and one of them a woman. I've seen better shows in fact at Butlins. Such a shame as they did not do Michael Jackson or his songs justice!

Terrible, terrible, terrible, terrible! I was so disappointed when i saw this show. I am a huge fan of Micheal Jackson and his music and they couldn't have let him down anymore than they did. The dancing was weak and the cast so small there was no impact. I was a great amiture show but definately not professional and not worth the money or time. Sorry to write this as i never write reviews but feel so disappointed!!

Right-I don't normally write reviews but I was originally put off going to see this show due to some rather critical reviews about the quality of the production,the fact that it had different people playing MJ etc.Anyway we eventually took the plunge for my daughters 16th birthday so thats 2 adults and 2 kids aged 16 and 12.What a pleasant surprise-a really great show.If you like MJ or that type of music you'll love it.Don't go expecting Les Miserables but waht you wll get is a high energy show which is designed to showcase the music and dancing of MJ (and the Jacksons).The cast are brilliant -all of them-the main singers are all extremely talented and the dancers are superb.The main singers have more talent in their little fingers than the whole of the XFactor finalists.The fact that they have different people singing different MJ songs is in fact a plus point and stops the whole thing turning into a tribute act type show.Special mention to the only white guy playing MJ who has a spectacularly good voice.The energy the whole cast brought to the show was infectious and they thoroughly deserbed the ovation they got.Bottom line-I'd go again tomorrow.QWe all came out with big smiles and buzzing.Hope this helps if you're undecided-I really don't know what some of the negative reviewrer were expecting or if indeed they saw the same show as us.
