In the aftermath of the documentary "Leaving Neverland" and accusations against the king of pop over child sexual abuse, a musical about his life changes its title shortly before it airs on Broadway
A new musical based on the life and career of Michael Jackson changes its title shortly before it hits the stage, in the aftermath of the documentary "Leaving Neverland" and accusations against the king of pop music for child sexual abuse.
Specifically, according to a Variety report, the original title of the show for Michael Jackson was "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough", but will now be called' MJ '- borrowing the originals of Michael Jackson's name. During this time and for many weeks, the cast is rehearsing as the show is expected to go on Broadway in the summer of 2020.
"We can confirm that Michael Jackson's musical has a new title," Rick Miramontez, a spokesman for the show, said. "As the show was rehearsed, the production felt that MJ was a better and more powerful choice than choosing any single artist song," he added.
However, the whole project has been overshadowed by many complaints of child sexual abuse by pop stars.
The controversy was rekindled by a recent UK documentary Leaving Neverland, which featured interviews with two men who accused Michael Jackson of sexually abusing them when they were children and hosting them in his famous Neverland.
Specifically, the two men claim to have been sexually abused by the singer for many years, even as they reach adolescence.
Michael Jackson passed away in 2009 at the age of 50, and his family denied all the allegations against him. "The creators of this documentary are not interested in the truth," the Jackson family said in a statement on the release of Leaving Neverland.
