Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston Inspire New Vegas Musical

The Man, a fictional musical inspired by the rise to stardom of pop stars Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Elvis, is currently in production, with a tentative date of fall 2013 for its opening in Las Vegas.

"We want this project to be a compelling, gritty, entertaining tale, that tells the story of the price of fame in a new way," said Mark Lamica, one of the producers and a partner of the late Frank Dileo, Jacko's former manager.

In addition to Lamica, four other Jackson managerial personnel-Quincy Krashna, Jerry Greenberg, Raymond Del Barrio and Larry Hart-are also listed as producers.

Lamica added that the production will be an "epic, music driven dramatic work," and "a fictional template and story that, with some variation, fits a number of global celebrities."
