Broadway may be experiencing a show-closing downturn at the moment but one producer thinks he knows just what will turn things around: a theatrical adaptation of Michael Jackson's "Thriller" album.
Knowing that one album won't quite fill two acts, the musical will also utilize tracks from "Off the Wall." Jackson, states a press release from the Nederlander Organization, "will participate in every aspect of the creative process."
The musical will take off from the movie date/werewolf transformation/dancing zombies "Thriller" video. "I love the idea of making 'Thriller' a musical. Girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy has big secret, now what..." says producer James Nederlander.
The announcement offered no clue as to when "Thriller" the musical might be making its way to New York. No doubt when the moon is full.
