It's time for my review of Thriller - Live.
This is yet another show that I haven't seen in a long time but have come back to review it. I am very glad I went back to see it as this is an excellent show. The singing and dancing are absolutely incredible. They have some very talented people in their cast. The lead vocalists include Haydon Eshun, Cleopatra Higgins, Dajiow, Tyrone Lee and Rory Taylor. The ensemble were also very good and this show really shows off their dancing ability. The songs including Dajiow, who was supposed to be portraying Michael Jackson, were a pleasure to watch. Thriller was put on very cleverly. The staging of the show was very good as well and I enjoyed the audience participation as I think it is good to get the whole audience up on their feet and make them feel part of the show. I do however feel with this show they could've made it a little better than they have. I feel they could perhaps make it into a show about Michael's history like Jersey Boys? I know this would go down a storm on both West End and Broadway. Perhaps it is time Thriller - Live had a revamp? Also I think if it did have this revamp and made the show about Michael Jacksons history I think it should star Dajiow as Michael Jackson, as he is a very talented singer and dancer. I think that the encore went on for far too long. It was three songs! An encore should just be one song, not three songs that feel like they go on forever. They try and keep the audience up on their feet for all this so this didn't really work. Overall though it is still a lot of fun and I am sure any Michael Jackson fan will love this show.
The featured star of Thriller - Live is, drum roll please… DAJIOW!
Dajiow is very, very talented! If the show takes my advice about the revamp then I really hope they cast Dajiow as Michael Jackson as he is the perfect person for this role.
Now for my final verdict on Thriller - Live. I give Thriller - Live…
This is definitely a show for all Michael Jackson fans so I advise all MJ fans to go and see this show ASAP.
Think it should have got a higher rating? Think it should have got a lower rating? If so comment below.
