NEW YORK (AP) A musical based on the songs of Michael Jackson will hit Broadway next summer.

The musical “MJ” will have preview performances at the Neil Simon Theatre beginning July 6, with opening night on Aug. 13.

The musical was previously called “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough.”

It was supposed to debut in Chicago this month, but producers called it off, citing an Actors Equity union strike.

The producers said it had nothing to do with the “Leaving Neverland” documentary that came out last January, in which two men said Jackson abused them as boys.
