The Hollywood Reporter wrote, "MJ, like its subject, is captivating and difficult to shake. The musical takes audiences through Jackson's life and catalog with extraordinary ease, expertly chronicling major milestones."

Together, they came out with astounding efforts, Off the Wall and Thriller. Moreover, many critics praised the MJ for not being the ordinary generic jukebox musical.

As with any Michael Jackson story, MJ also gave attention on the challenges the pop star went through. It also gave an insight of the cost he had to pay for such profound fame. Variety was quick to point this out, "The demons that Jackson battles in "MJ," his father and the media, are figured as horrifying. But if there was darkness behind the angelic falsetto, a mix of light and shadow that made Michael Jackson a singular artist, "MJ" enacts a sleight of hand, insisting it didn't belong to him. It's a renouncement worthy enough of a clever criminal."
