New York, NY – The Michael Jackson Estate and Columbia Live Stage announced today that the new musical Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough will now have its world premiere on Broadway when it opens in summer of next year. Its previously announced pre-Broadway engagement in Chicago has been cancelled due to scheduling difficulties brought about by the recent Actors Equity strike. The new musical will feature a book by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage and a score made up of some of the best-loved, top-selling songs in recording history. Tony Award winner Christopher Wheeldon will direct and choreograph.
The producers also announced that the musical’s First National Tour will premiere in Chicago.
A developmental work session will take place in New York City this fall.
