In a review, La Toya Jackson, Michael Jackson’s sister, said, “It is not only his talent and his music, on stage, but also his heart. I’d like to see this show on Broadway.”

Dubbed the “King of Pop,” Jackson was one of the most significant cultural figures of the past century, with a career spanning four decades. Known for his hits “Beat It,” “Billie Jean,” and “Thriller,” Jackson was a once-in-a-lifetime star.  

His death in June of 2009 after suffering a cardiac arrest sent shockwaves across the world, and tributes soon poured in. 

“Forever King of Pop” will be staged at the Charles Bronfman Auditorium in Israel’s central city of Tel Aviv.
