Myles Frost, who plays the title character in “MJ,” has missed several weeks of performances in February due to a minor injury, the production confirmed Monday.
Aramie Payton, one of the understudies for MJ, had been performing in the role from Feb. 4 through at least Feb. 26, he wrote on social media. Frost is expected to return to the production this week.
“Due to a minor foot injury, Myles has been out of the show, and Aramie has performed the role of Michael Jackson, along with understudy Darius Wright. Myles is expected back as ‘MJ’ this week,” the production said in a statement to Broadway News.
“MJ” opened at the Neil Simon Theatre on Feb. 1, after starting previews on Dec. 6.
