Michael Jackson's 'Sisterella' to Be Brought Back to the Stage
Michael Jackson's pop/rock musical based on the Cinderella fairytale is dancing its way back to the Los Angeles stage for a new production next year. The King of Pop executive produced "Sisterella" when it debuted at the Pasadena Playhouse in 1996, and now his business partner Jerry Greenberg and manager Frank Dileo are reprising the Larry Hart-penned show for another run.
The dance routines in the musical, about a wicked stepmother who tries to steal the fortune her late husband left to his daughter, will be choreographed by original dance instructor Raymond G. del Barrio. Casting details have yet to be announced.
Prominent music figure, Michael Jackson passed away on Thursday, June 25, 2009. He was 50 and is survived by three children; Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr., Paris Michael Katherine Jackson and Prince "Blanket" Michael Jackson II.
