The Michael Jackson Estate and Columbia Live Stage announced that a Michael Jackson stage musical are canceling a 2019 pre-Broadway engagement in Chicago, citing "scheduling difficulties" caused by the recently ended Actors' Equity strike, according to a Deadline.com item.
Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough will now make its world premiere with the previously announced Broadway debut in summer 2020. It was to have debuted at Chicago's James M. Nederlander Theatre, running Oct. 29-Dec. 1.
The new musical will feature a book by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage and a score with more than 25 Jackson songs. Tony winner Christopher Wheeldon will direct and choreograph.
