$59-$250

Centered around the making of his 1992 Dangerous World Tour, this flashy musical celebrates the singular moves and signature sound of the star while exploring the  creative mind and collaborative spirit that catapulted Jackson into legendary status. The plot is not much and avoids exploring problematic aspects of Jackson’s life, but the lead actor Myles Frost’s stellar performance and electrifying choreography dazzle and the songs are so good.

⏱ 2 hours and 30 minutes with one intermission
❤️ The show is set before any accusations of pedophilia; it is not referenced at all.
💥 Flashbacks show Jackson’s father verbally and physically abusing his kids. The monsters in ‘Thriller’ are super creepy.

Heckscher Playground

Central Park’s largest playground features a shaded area with swings and slides, a large, maze-like climbers, seasonal water features, sloped turf, a large sandbox area, low monkey bars, tunnels, ramps and (our favorite) giant rocks to climb. Plus a spacious bathroom.

Face painters, musicians and giant bubble makers often congregate at the entrance.
