According to Nitzberg, the premise of the show is that “everything MJ has been accused of has actually been caused by his glove, which is actually an alien from outer space [and] feeds on virgin boy blood.” So, that’s certainly one way to frame it. It was originally reported that the play would be produced by Johnny Depp’s production company, Infinitum Nihil, but those claims were refuted recently by Depp’s reps.

Whether Depp is involved or not, this is a play that we have to see believe. Then, we’ll need to see it again. Then, we’ll probably need to take a shower to wash the “yuck” off of ourselves. Whether Jackson actually committed the crimes he was accused of or not is a matter of opinion. But something we can all agree on is the fact that this is a really, really dumb idea. Still, maybe some people will see the show and rest a little easier knowing that it was Jackson’s glove that was the real “smooth criminal” all along.
