NEW YORK (WCBS 880/AP) -- A musical about the "King of Pop" could soon be moonwalking to the Great White Way.

The Michael Jackson Estate and Columbia Live Stage are unveiling plans for a Broadway musical inspired by the life of Michael Jackson.

The story for the as-yet untitled musical will be written by two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Lynn Nottage. Tony Award winner Christopher Wheeldon will direct and choreograph the production.

They hope to bring it to Broadway by 2020.

The move is the latest stage project to portray pop stars onstage with their best works, a list that includes Donna Summer, Cher, Gloria Estefan, the Go-Gos, and Huey Lewis and the News.
