Performance will be based on the book by the American playwright Julian Nitzberg “for the love of the glove: unofficial music story about the life of Michael Jackson told him with a glove”.

The idea for the book came from Nitzberg 17 years ago, when a major TV company asked him to write a script for a movie about Jackson. Then the negotiations stalled due to the accusations of the singer of pedophilia. Soon Nitzberg offered another version of the story.

“And if all that accused Jackson blame his glove that came from space and fed on the blood of young virgins?” – says the writer.

It is assumed that the musical will show strange forces that influenced Michael Jackson, and the scandals that ruined his reputation.

In parallel with the creation of the musical “the love glove”, the official biographical film about Michael Jackson. A film with the working title MJ produced Graham king (“Bohemian Rhapsody”), the script writes the author of “Gladiator” and “the Last samurai” by John Logan. The Jackson family endorsed the idea of the film and gave authors the right to use all the songs of a musician.

Premiere of “for the love of the glove” to be held on 25 January 2020 in Los Angeles.
