The forthcoming Michael Jackson musical titled "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough" has canceled its world premiere Chicago tryout. The show, inspired by the life and times of the late "King of Pop," will instead open directly on Broadway in New York City in summer 2020.

The Michael Jackson estate and Columbia Live Stage cited scheduling difficulties brought about by a recent Actors Equity strike as the reason for the scuttled Windy City launch. For more information, visit broadwayinchicago.com or dontstoponbroadway.com.
