It's a Thriller on Broadway for Michael Jackson!

Via the Associated Press:

Producer James L. Nederlander says he has acquired the rights for a stage version of Michael Jackson's iconic music-video spoof of horror films. The show will include songs from two of the pop king's best-selling albums, "Thriller" and "Off the Wall."...

"I love the idea of making 'Thriller' a musical. Girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy has big secret, now what?" said Nederlander, head of the company that owns nine Broadway theaters.

Not gonna lie, I'm already kind of excited for the large-scale "Thriller" dance that will inevitably occur. Did Michael Jackson ever play St. Louis? I'm curious.
