A complete review of the show:

Michael Jackson ONE by Cirque du Soleil is the unbeatable show that extends the king of pop’s message of peace, harmony, unity, and hope for a better world. The 90-minute extravaganza is a collaboration of Cirque du Soleil and the Estate of Michael Jackson. With spectacular acrobats, aerialists and dances this show give you exactly what you came for. The dancers in the show are extremely talented and with their incredible performance, they wish for better qualities of people and life around the world.

The unmatched production show focuses on evil themes as well as friends overcoming adversity while they travel through life. The show is based on four main characters Clumsy, Smarty Pants, Shy and Sneaky. Each character represents a different angle on life and once they receive their gift from Michael their lives change forever. During the production, Clumsy receives a pair of Michael’s shoes from the Magical Trunk. The balancing skill of Clumsy remain excellent, there is a wonderful double slackline performance to the hit song Bad.

With extra ordinary multimedia effect, the artistic expression on the stage remains fabulous. Once Shy is given a pair of Michael’s glasses she is able to fight an evil group of warriors putting on a display of her martial arts skills while 2000 Watts and Jam rumble your seat. The leader of the group is given Michael’s hat and Smarty Pants releases the power of the hat as he dances gracefully to Smile. Now it is a time of Sneaky who is marvelous with his rogue glove during this Place Hotel as well as Working Day and Night. That is day and night Place so was this is easy.

This show becomes more interesting when the cast of the show represent Michael’s vision of life with joy, peace, and kindness. During the show, there is small drama gives a message that no matter how big and powerful the evil is but one day it destroys. In this drama, the Mephisto are the true antagonists during the event and he uses his power to torture people. The Mephisto is villainized throughout the production for their connection to the paparazzi and other media. Then these four characters evolve battle with Mephisto and defeat him.

The artists on stage during Michael Jackson ONE use an urban style dance technique that requires the dancers to rely on rapid movement between fast and slow. This style of dance is quite evident during Smooth Criminal where Mephisto’s gangs of trench coat wearing evildoers perform stunning dance moves that involve summersaults, flipping and twisting. Small and large shadows appear on the stage behind veils of white curtains during Planet Earth and the Earth Song. The mystic and illusionary qualities of the shadows are captivating.

In the next half, Michael Jackson ONE unveils Michael as a person who was full of hope and high spirits as well as someone who was magical in many different ways. A mystical effect comes in the show when spirit and image of Michael dance with the multiple multimedia effects. Spectacular acrobatics, stunning dance and aerial bungee artists make the show more exciting. At one point during the show another character named Wink is released from Michael’s Magic Trunk and the mood gets a little more magical when he dances in mysterious ways to I’LL Be There and Never Can Say Goodbye. Another spectacular moment is during the hit song Beat It when eighteen dancers wearing white fedoras engage feverishly in a choreographed confusion that includes acrobats and aerialists using bungee cords. Eventually, the grand show ends in a grand manner, when the Moon Goddess gracefully appears on stage riding a half crescent moon during Stranger in Moscow, the audience simply remains moonstruck.
