Star Studded Cast Headline London’s West End Musical Celebration Thriller Live – Malaysia 2015! Milestone Production, the organiser of THRILLER LIVE – internationally acclaimed musical all the way from West End London is thrilled to announce that the show will feature several celebrities such as ‘Prinnie Stevens’ and ‘Alex Buchannan’ who will be performing together with Sean Christopher, MiG Ayesa and 20 other West End actors & actresses. Stevens and Buchannan achieved their height of fame when they competed in The Voice and even have their own singles and albums.
When asked to comment on the cast of Thriller Live, Grace Lee, Managing Director of Milestone Production said that she was excited to bring in a FULL West End Cast as well as stage props and sets from the UK. Malaysians no longer need to travel to West End, Broadway or Australia to watch and experience THRILLER LIVE.
“We are fortunate to have secured the same cast which is currently touring Australia and have agreed to make a stopover in Malaysia only in 2015. According to some of the Australian reviews, some of the tickets are already currently on waitlist due to the spectacular cast, crew and show dynamics.” Lee added.
When asked who is Michael Jackson in THRILLER LIVE, Adrian Grant, Creator of THRILLER LIVE commented that THRILLER LIVE is definitely NOT a tribute show where they have a look alike or someone to try to impersonate Michael Jackson because that would make the show look cheap because there is only ONE and only Michael Jackson. Instead, this vibrant and high-energy musical celebration will celebrate Michael Jackson’s music, life and persona, represented by 5 highly energetic West End lead singers, backed by an equally diverse dance troupe.
The THRILLER LIVE cast in Australia has received excellent reviews. According to one of the writers, Paula Katsikas the show was nothing short of brilliant! The words exciting, thrilling, energetic and riveting from start to finish come to mind. Michael could captivate all generations like no other artist and though he may not be here in person any more, he continues to do so in ‘THRILLER LIVE’ with his music.
Another contributor Q (from Damienshields.com) also added that the highlights of THRILLER LIVE were the ensemble numbers which shared the heavy load of Jackson’s talent with class and passion thus creating some breath-taking harmonies along the way. These group moments for him were the strength of the show and a true tribute to the King of Pop’s music.
Created to celebrate the career of the world’s greatest entertainer Michael Jackson, THRILLER LIVE is set to thrill audiences this year at Putra Indoor Stadium, Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur from 19th till the 25th March 2015.
