At 7:30 PM the lights outside both the Lyric Theatre and Alexandra Theatre will be dimmed in tribute to mark Michael Jackson's passing.
The entire cast and band will all meet on stage at both venues to pay tribute to Mr. Jackson. There will be speeches, and the cast will invite the audience to stand and hold a minute's silence throughout the auditorium.
"Britain's Got Talent" finalist Shaheen Jafargholi, who is currently appearing as the young Michael Jackson in the show, will be performing at Jackson's memorial in Los Angeles.
The production is currently booking in the West End to Jan. 3, 2010. It has already set records as the highest-gorssing weekly show in the history of the Lyric Theatre. Described in press materials as "a spectacular, high-octane concert specially created to celebrate the career of the world's greatest entertainer and undisputed King of Pop, Michael Jackson and the Jackson 5," the cast now includes "X Factor" finalist Maria Lawson.
