"I love the idea of making 'Thriller' a musical. Girl meets boy, they fall in love, boy has big secret, now what?" said producer James L. Nederlander, head of the company that owns nine Broadway theaters.

The musical will feature songs from Jackson's "Thriller" and "Off the Wall" albums.

"The Nederlanders and Michael Jackson represent live theater and musical excellence, so let the music begin," Tohme Tohme, Jackson's spokesman, said in a statement.
