In January 2015 Thriller Live celebrated the start of a record-breaking 7th year in the West End. On January 25th, with its 2,530th show at the Lyric Theatre, Thriller Live became the 19th longest running musical in the history of the West End. On Sunday April 12th, Thriller Live will overtake Oliver! to take the coveted 18th position.
Producers Paul Walden & Derek Nicol said in a statement today: “We are thrilled that Thriller Live goes from strength to strength, setting new records and passing even more impressive West End milestones and we are looking forward to another year at the Lyric Theatre. It is such a feel-good show that it’s a feature of our celebration of the music and dance moves of Michael Jackson that our audiences are usually up on their feet dancing in the aisles by the end of the show. We now want them to encourage them to dig into their pockets and give as much as to Comic Relief as they can as our cast do bucket collections at the theatre exits. Michael Jackson dedicated much of his life to helping those less fortunate in the world and we believe that Comic Relief through their work around the globe are carrying on that great and worthy tradition.”
Previous charitable fundraising at Thriller Live included one amazing night when soul legend Macy Gray, R&B stars Stooshe and X Factor winner Joe McEldery all performed MJ songs in the show alongside a moonwalking Pudsey the Bear for BBC1’s Children in Need.
