Show Description

It’s showtime, folks! The ghost-with-the-most comes to the stage in this edgy and irreverent musical comedy based on Tim Burton’s dearly beloved film. 

BEETLEJUICE tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager obsessed with the whole “being dead thing.” Lucky for Lydia, her new house is haunted by a recently deceased couple and Beetlejuice, a delightful demon with a real zest for life. When Lydia calls on Beetlejuice to scare away anyone with a pulse, this double-crossing specter shows his true stripes, unleashing a (Nether)world of pandemonium, and the biggest sandworm Broadway has ever seen. And under its uproarious surface (six feet under, to be exact), it’s a remarkably touching show about family, love, and making the most of every Day-O!

Directed by Alex Timbers (Moulin Rouge!), with an irreverent book, an astonishing set, and a score that will have you tapping your feet long after you’ve shuffled off this mortal coil, Beetlejuice is a must-see spectacular that will “Dazzle The Eyes" (New York Post).

Audience Advisory

Production contains strong language, mature references, and a lot of the crazy, inappropriate stuff you would expect from a deranged demon

The Haunted Mansion vibe is on full blast at the Winter Garden, where spooky-carnival pre-show music plays while chartreuse searchlights semi-periodically blind you on your way to your seat and theater staff hawk “It’s showtime!” T-shirts and booze in recognizably striped sippy cups. My usher was sporting a neon-green manicure complete with black-and-white accent nails on each ring finger. (That’s commitment.) Beetlejuice, the rowdy, raunchy musical adapted from Tim Burton’s 1988 horror-comedy, openly embraces the theme park-y aspects of an enterprise like the one it’s engaged in. True to its source material, it’s loud, it’s cheeky, and it’s all about excess. It’s also — thanks in large part to Alex Brightman’s spot-on performance as the incorrigible titular ghoul — a pretty fun time.

The musical’s book, by Scott Brown (a former theater critic, perhaps proving there is indeed life after death) and Anthony King, is clever and rich in sardonic wit, with zippy one-liners detonating like a string of firecrackers almost throughout. The musical is considerably funnier than the movie. (Like many new musicals, “Beetlejuice” is lightly larded with nifty in-jokes referencing classic ones: “Hello, Dolly!” and “Brigadoon” and “Fiddler on the Roof.”)

The retooling done since its out-of-town tryout in D.C. — along with a host of others plot twists and character tweaks — gives the latest film-to-musical adaptation fresh snap, surprises and (gasp!) even heart. Sure, the narrative becomes a bit of a cluster-muck in the second act — but mostly it’s just screamingly good fun.
