If there’s ever a musical based on the late King of Pop’s catalog, Branca would be the legal mastermind behind it. He spends much of his time managing the Michael Jackson estate, including building on last year’s sale of its interest in Sony ATV for $750 million. “There are a number of things one can imagine in the future, without confirming, announcing or denying — a Broadway play, a biopic, some others things,” Branca says. “We do things we love and we think Michael would love.” He also represents more than 30 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees or their estates, including The Doors, Carlos Santana, Janis Joplin and Otis Redding. “Authenticity is the key,” Branca says. “You have to stay true to who the artist is, or was.”
