    Okay, 2nd act is far better. I went into it knowing it was more of a concert style than a musical, but I felt like the production was not up to the standard I expect from a West End Show, instead feeling it's very much an X Factor standard. If I saw this as a touring production in a regional theatre I'd be happy with it, but for the West End I feel the show should and needs to be bigger.
    Plenty of legroom and the seat is really comfy. Views decent however can be spoiled if you have someone in front of you that is tall or fidgets - there are also sections of the show that the cast encourage you to stand up, so if you don't want to or can't then it's virtually impossible to see.

    The show is a real crowd pleaser for Michael Jackson fans and the male singers were exceptional, not sure the female singer was needed. It felt like she was going through the motions and her stage presence was lacking. It felt more like a high quality tribute show then a West End show and wasn't worth the price of a West End ticket. Not all the dancers were great and pulled focus when they were out of time. What ruined the show for me was the Michael Jackson impersonator - he lip synced, his dancing was abysmal, he ruined all the classics that I was looking forward to. I just couldn't watch him. Overall, I'm not sure I would recommend seeing this show as there are far superior shows on all the time but if you're a die hard fan or a child you'll enjoy it.
    Could see all of the stage apart from the raised platform at the back which was a shame but I guess to be expected because of being so high up. The seats were comfortable which was a huge relief because I am 8 months pregnant. Hardly any legroom though and I was constantly worried I was going to kick the head of the man sitting in front of me.

    AWFUL experience! Was informed unable to buy a drink at bar upon coming out of toilets? Had had two drinks about 3 hours before show. Staff within theatre during show performance we found stern and intimidating. One gentleman stood in aisle behind his seat and was returned to his seat?! We felt very uncomfortable and restricted/unable to stand and dance (despite having purposefully chosen the back and aisle seats?) Did not feel we could relax nor dance. Very very terrible experience which upset me from the start and actually spoilt my birthday treat with my friend. I shan't be recommending the theatre sadly to anyone - however the show/performers were outstanding. Such a shame.
    Not all the stage - could not see the very front of stage.

    Good if you love Michel Jackson. is not a proper musical but more a concert of his songs. Some great singers.
    Sat in Stalls D15
    Wonderful seats. Very close to the stage and great when everyone stands up to dance
Watch out for the pillars in the Lyric Theatre. These are best avoided by sitting in the front section of the Stalls.

Now years after the tragic death of Michael Jackson, his music and spirit live on in the dazzling stage extravaganza, Thriller - Live.

The show was created by lifelong Jackson fan, Adrian Grant, who brings a wide selection of the King of Pop’s back catalogue to the stage.

The show begins amid Jackson’s early years as an integral part of the Jackson 5 and progresses through to the later parts of his musical career.

Audience members can enjoy hits such as “I Want You back,” “ABC,” “Blame it on the Boogie,” “Rock With You,” “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough,” “Beat It,” “Man in The Mirror,” the title song “Thriller” and much much more.

Not only is the show an ode to Jackson’s incredible and timeless music, it also plays testimony to his excellent dance skills. Sections of his choreography are performed alongside his musical numbers by a skilled troupe of performers.

If all of the above wasn’t enough; the show also uses video project as well as on stage set and costume to showcases some of Jackson’s most iconic looks.

Whilst some may never have had the pleasure of watching the actual King of Pop perform his music, watching Thriller - Live is now the closest thing you can get to the real thing.
Suitable For
Thriller - Live is an absolute treat for all fans of Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5. The show is also excellent for people who love shows like X Factor and The Voice. The show is suitable for all of the family, however it is worth noting that the Lyric Theatre will not admit children under the age of 4.
