How to Get Reduced Tickets to MJ The Musical

Updated: April 5, 2024

This post is about how to get concessionary tickets to MJ The Musical on Broadway, including $40 digital lottery mezzanine tickets and other deals.

MJ The Musical opened in December 2021. This tribute in song and dance to the legendary Michael Jackson instantly became a smash hit.

The show offers a look at the life of this iconic pop star through the lens of more than 25 of Jackson’s most famous songs, like “Beat It”, “Thriller” and “Billie Jean”.

These hits are set to dynamic choreography that earned director/choreographer Christopher Wheeldon his second “Best Choreography” Tony Award.

How Much Does It Cost To See MJ The Musical On Broadway?

Tickets are on sale through TodayTix and other online vendors with a few price cut options available.

Sometimes StubHub and Ticketmaster offer slightly cheaper tickets or better seats for the same price as TodayTix. It's worth a look.

Regular-priced tickets through TodayTix usually start from about $99 for mezzanine seating and can reach $250 for premium seating, depending on the day of the week.

Digital Lottery Tickets

MJ The Musical also offers a digital lottery where you can enter online to win same-day reduced price tickets. 

Tickets cost just $40!

Starting at 9 am on the day of the show you can fill out a form and enter.

After the lottery closes at 3 pm, you will be notified via email within minutes as to whether you won or not.

You will have 60 minutes to pay by credit card if you are notified you have won.  

Seats are assigned at the discretion of the box office and cannot be transferred to other people or performances. Please note that lottery seats may have a partially obstructed view of the stage.

Some shows have an in-person lottery at the theater box office but at this time, MJ The Musical does not.

We have an in-depth post on Broadway ticket lotteries, how they work, and which shows offer them, that you should read.

For sold-out shows, there may be a very slim possibility of standing-room-only tickets.
