A Michael Jackson Musical is Coming to Broadway in 2020
Just a week before the anniversary of Michael Jackson’s death, it’s been announced that he’ll be an inspiration for the “Great White Way.” The King of Pop’s estate and Columbia Live Stage announced that they are developing a new stage musical based on his life.

Of course, the score will feature hits from Jackson’s enormous discography.

Plus, all those Steph Curry comparisons can’t hurt his stock either. Other draft prospects who have already signed deals include Ayton, Marvin Bagley Jr., and Zhaire Smith who all announced deals with Puma.
