Johnny Depp is producing a musical about Michael Jackson – as told by his glove

Johnny Depp is producing a new musical about the life of Michael Jackson – as told from the point of view of his glove.

The musical will be based on the play For the Love of Glove: An Unauthorised Musical Fable About the Life of Michael Jackson, as Told by His Glove, which has been written by Julien Nitzberg.

The play is described as “a fresh, revisionist look at the strange forces that shaped Jackson and the scandals that bedevilled him.” The musical will debut in LA next January.

Nitzberg reportedly told Page Six that a major television network in the US had asked him to write a film about Jackson but that they later pulled out following allegations of child abuse against Jackson which emerged earlier this year.

Of his Jackson play, Nitzberg said: “A major TV network wanted me to write a [Jackson] movie…but the question came up [about] how to deal with the child-abuse allegations.

“[So] I said, how’s this? 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. They laughed and said, ‘can you do the normal version?’
