The Tony Award-winning musical celebrates the life story and career of Michael Jackson, from his time with his brothers in the Jackson 5 at Motown to his record-breaking Thriller album and beyond.

Myles Frost - who became the youngest person to win the 2022 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Musical - brilliantly plays the King of Pop in the new West End production.

Centred around his iconic Dangerous tour and using clever flashbacks, the musical is packed full of legendary Michael Jackson songs including 'Thriller', 'Billie Jean' and 'Beat It'.

Smooth Radio's Angie Greaves caught up with Myles at the Prince Edward Theatre ahead of the show's launch this week, where he spoke about his love of Michael and his journey to getting the role.

Myles also took us through MJ's impressive wardrobe, and also showcased his incredible dance moves. He also taught Angie how to moonwalk up close!
