Since 2007, the blockbuster award winning show, Thriller Live has marked its presence at the Lyric Theatre! The show is surely one of the greatest hit albums onstage being performed by number of Jackson look a like. With the early compositions of Jackson 5, the onstage production begins. Although the show needs no description, as its success has already cleared all, but it has recently undergone rework.

The award winning show, Thriller Live has four new songs and a revamped opening medley. There is no comparison between the old version and the new one, but both are equally stunning. With perfect compositions, the show is a must watch for avid lovers of Jackson. The show is a brilliant amalgamation of lively numbers and slower, sadder ballads etc. The new additions make the show bit lengthy, but they are enjoyable especially Rockin Robin.

ISecond half is quite better and enjoyable compare to the first part with memorable last twenty minutes, as you can enjoy brilliant song sequences like Billie Jean, Thriller, Bad and Smooth Criminal. The strongest aspect of Thriller Live is its choreography which is quite inventive and exhilarating. With traditional moves of Jackson, where are some of them are quite complex as well gravity defying, spell bind the audience.

Thriller Live is a funfilled entertainment show which is technically excellent. The show is a must watch for the Jackson’s fans. So, get ready for some great time with award winning show, Thriller Live!
