Johnny Depp isn't producing strange musical called 'For the Love of a Glove' about Michael Jackson

November 30, 2019


(UPDATED) It was earlier reported by Page Six that Johnny Depp and his production company were involved with the Broadway puppet musical show and the biopic which is under development, For the Love of a Glove: An Unauthorized Musical Fable About the Life of Michael Jackson, As Told By His Glove.


The Hollywood Reporter confirmed this weekend in a report: “there is disputes over credits and a rep for Depp says that he and his company are not producing and not involved in any way.” One thing that hasn’t changed? Former Mr. Show and SNL cast member Jerry Minor is playing the glove. Still strange.

For The Love Of A Glove: An Unauthorized Musical Fable About The Life Of Michael Jackson, 'As Told By His Glove,' written by Julien Nitzberg and will debut on Jan. 25 at the Carl Sagan & Ann Druyan Theater.


The play involves actors among life-size puppets that represent everyone from Jackson himself to members of the Jackson 5 and even Bubbles the Chimp.
