Two of Michael Jackson's children, Prince Jackson and Paris Jackson, his sister, were at the opening night of MJ: The Musical on Tuesday. The purpose of the Broadway show is to celebrate the late music icon's career.

The musical seeks to take audiences into the creative process Michael Jackson used, and it shows the singer as he rehearses for his 1992 Dangerous Tour.

The show features more than 25 of his biggest hits, and it is directed by Christopher Wheeldon, a Tony Award winner.

Both Prince and Paris posed for a photo at the Neil Simon Theatre. Prince is 24, and his sister Paris is now 23.

He wore a grey suit while his sister wore a red paisley dress.

Paris had to travel to New York to attend the event. At the show, she also posed with TJ Jackson, her cousin.

TJ is the son of Tito Jackson, Michael's brother, a member of the initial Jackson 5.

This was the second time Prince attended the musical. He had gone to watch its preview back in December. After the preview, he said hello to some of the creative people behind it and had chats with them.

He also expressed how anxious he was to see it a second time and even took a photo with a fan.

According to reports, he had a lot of great things to say about the show, which he feels is a fitting honor to his late father.

The source said that Prince was completely blown away and that he kept saying "Wow" while talking about how much he loved the show and the energy it had, including the logo.

Prince and Paris Jackson have a younger brother, Bigi Jackson, who is now 19. He was previously known as Blanket Jackson, although he was born as Prince Michael Jackson II.

After he died in 2013 at the age of 50, Michael Jackson was accused of sexual assault by two people. Back in 2003, he was put under arrest on child molestation charges, but a jury acquitted him in 2005.

In Leaving Neverland, a two-part documentary about him, he spoke about some of the allegations made against him. At the moment, it is not clear if the musical deals with these allegations.
