The Michael Jackson ONE Las Vegas show revolves around four adventurers: Smarty Pants, Shy, Sneaky, and Clumsy. These adventurers are considered to be The Heroes of the theater. When they enter the theater, they find four objects from Michael Jackson’s wardrobe. These items include his sunglasses, white gloves, black fedora, and black socks and shoes.
The MJ ONE story has the Heroes transported to another world after touching those objects. It is a Michael Jackson world filled with music and songs from his massive body of work.
