Last night, the cast of Thriller Live celebrated as the show celebrated its 3000th performance in the West End. Thriller has now been seen by more than 3 million people worldwide and is currently touring the UK.
Producers Paul Walden & Derek Nicol said: “We are thrilled that Thriller Live continues to rock the West End, delighting audiences of all nationalitites in its 8th record-breaking year at the Lyric Theatre.”
Thriller Live opened at the Lyric Theatre on January 26, 2009 and recently passed Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s Evita to become the 17th Longest Running West End Musical of all time.
Thriller Live is unlike other West End musicals. There is no script or story, it is instead a eye-popping spectacular concert celebration of Michael Jackson’s music and dance legacy, bringing to life on stage his distinctive high-energy dancing and the pulsating sound of many of pop’s greatest hits. The show changes each year with new numbers added, and features specially created video footage and effects and dazzling choreography by the show’s award-winning director, Gary Lloyd.
