Review: Thriller Live, Theatre Royal Norwich
Thriller Live is back in town and it’s the ultimate homage to the king of pop, Michael Jackson.
It may be almost 10 years since he died, and his reputation has frankly not survived well given the various scandals and allegations about his personal life, but his music at least remains as popular as ever and as the show takes you through many of his super hits, it isn’t hard to see why.
Expect Billie Jean, ABC, Man in the Mirror, PYT, Beat It, Bad, Black or White and She’s Out of My Life - all belted out at top volume!
There are five main vocalists who power their way through these numbers, including Resident Director Britt Quentin, who has an uncanny likeness in both look and sound to Jackson, and Kieran Alleyne, who once starred as a young MJ in this very show. He, perhaps, best captures Jackson’s fancy footwork.
The show starts in the early Jackson 5 days of Motown, works through the disco years of Blame it on the Boogie, and finishes with the Earth Song, changing outfits numerous times along the way.
The dancers, and their amazing routines, drive the show forward with boundless energy and the band keeps that groove going.
The show is a smash hit around the world. It’s a lively night, with plenty of dancing and the hits just keep on coming. Enjoy!
The show continues until Saturday. Visit www.theatreroyalnorwich.co.uk
