Madonna praised stage actor Myles Frost after she was touched by his performance in Broadway’s “MJ: The Musical” inspired by events in the life of the late pop superstar Michael Jackson.

The 63-year-old pop music legend uploaded a gallery of snaps on her Instagram story Monday where she posed with actors from “MJ: The Musical” at the Neil Simon Theatre in New York City. In one of the photos, Madonna could be seen hugging Tony Award winner Frost for his depiction of the King of Pop who died at the age of 50 in 2009.

"Thank You for your extraordinary performance as Michael Jackson. You made me cry," the “Material Girl” singer wrote in her photo. She also took photos of the “amazing” cast and crew of the Broadway show.

A fan shared the snaps on Twitter and wrote, "Madonna backstage at MJ, the Musical."

Madonna shared a close friendship with Jackson and even referred to the “Thriller” singer as a “wonderful and glorious creature” in a tribute to what would have been Jackson’s 58th birthday in 2016. Madonna's birthday tribute also included throwback photos of her moments with Jackson whom she called “The King,” who was “gone too soon.”

The iconic singers attended the Academy Awards together in 1991, a move seen by the press as nothing but a mere publicity stunt to promote their projects at the time.

“MJ: The Musical” follows Jackson’s creative process while rehearsing for his 1992 “Dangerous World Tour. The show is created by Tony Award-winning director and choreographer Christopher Wheeldon and two-time Pulitzer Prize recipient Lynn Nottage. Michael Jackson’s estate is a producer of the Broadway show, according to People. The production opened at the Neil Simon Theatre on Feb. 1, 2022.

The musical "goes beyond the singular moves and signature sound of the star, offering a rare look at the creative mind and collaborative spirit that catapulted Jackson into legendary status,” the outlet reported.

The musical does not mention Jackson's arrest in 2003 owing to child molestation charges nor the sexual abuse allegations in 2013. "We're sensitive to what's going on and we'll see whether it works into the show or not. But the primary focus of our show has always been focusing on Michael's creative process,” Wheeldon had said about writing the musical in a 2019 interview with The New York Times.
