Iconic recording artist Michael Jackson will be the subject of new jukebox musical DON'T STOP 'TIL YOU GET ENOUGH, which will try out in Chicago later this year before a 2020 Broadway bow according to an official announcement by producers this week.

Featuring "Billie Jean", "Thriller", "Man In The Mirror" and nearly two dozen more hits from Jackson's recognizable song catalog, performances begin at the Nederlander Theatre in Chicago on October 29, running through December 1. A Broadway opening is expected soon thereafter at a theater to be announced.

Olivier Award winner Christopher Wheeldon directs and choreographs the production, featuring a book by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage, produced by the Michael Jackson Estate and Columbia Live Stage.
