It’s Showtime Again! Beetlejuice Will Return to Broadway This Spring

Saying his name three times has paid off because Beetlejuice has been brought back to life. The beloved musical will haunt Broadway again this coming spring. On Friday, April 8, 2022, Beetlejuice will play its first performance since March 11, 2020, this time haunting Broadway’s Marquis Theatre.

“We are overjoyed to be able to bring ‘The Ghost with The Most’ back to Broadway and are looking forward to seeing all our Beetlejuice fans this spring at the Marriott Marquis where we will blow the roof off the theatre three-times over with fun and laughter, laughter and laughter!” said producers Mark Kaufman (Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures) and Kevin McCormick (Langley Park Productions).

Casting and a ticket on sale date will be announced soon.

Beetlejuice is directed by two-time Tony Award-nominee Alex Timbers (Director of Warner Bros. forthcoming Toto, the animated musical film adaptation of Michael Morpurgo and Emma Chichester Clark’s 2017 book), with an original score by Tony Award-nominee Eddie Perfect (King Kong), a book by Tony Award-nominee Scott Brown (Castle Rock) and Emmy Award and Tony Award-nominee Anthony King (Broad City), music supervision, orchestrations and incidental music by Kris Kukul (Joan of Arc: Into the Fire), and choreography by Connor Gallagher (The Robber Bridegroom).

Beetlejuice opened on Broadway on Thursday, April 25, 2019, presented by Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures (Mark Kaufman) and Langley Park Productions (Kevin McCormick), and won the Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics Circle Award for David Korins’ scenic design and was nominated for eight Tony Awards including Best Musical. Beetlejuice had a history-making run on Broadway – following the release of the musical’s original Broadway cast recording and Tony Awards appearance, the box office exploded, making it the surprise hit of the 2018/2019 season. Beetlejuice‘s Tony Awards performance has gone on to be the most watched musical number from the broadcast with over 3,921,530 views. Beetlejuice became a sensation with fans everywhere including on TikTok, which lead to an additional burst of ticket sales from a new audience for Broadway, making the musical one of the top-grossing shows on Broadway, going on to break the Winter Garden box office record. The smash-hit musical Beetlejuice, originally set to close in June 2020, was shuttered with the rest of Broadway on March 12, 2020, at the Winter Garden Theatre having played 366 performances.

Beetlejuice features scenic design by three-time Tony Award-nominee David Korins (Hamilton), costume design by six-time Tony Award winner William Ivey Long (The Producers), lighting design by Tony Award winner Kenneth Posner (Kinky Boots), sound design by five-time Tony Award-nominee Peter Hylenski (Frozen), projection design by Tony Award-nominee and Drama Desk Award winner Peter Nigrini (Dear Evan Hansen), puppet design by Drama Desk Award winner Michael Curry (The Lion King), special effects design by Jeremy Chernick (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child), illusions by Michael Weber (Forrest Gump), hair & wig design by Drama Desk Award-nominee Charles G. LaPointe, make-up design by Joe Dulude, physical movement coordinator Lorenzo Pisoni, casting by Telsey + Company and Rachel Hoffman, CSA, dance arrangements by David Dabbon, music producing by Matt Stine, production stage manager Rachel Bauder, associate director Catie Davis, associate choreographer Nancy Renee Braun, and line producer Jenny Gersten.

It’s showtime, folks! The ghost-with-the-most makes his Broadway return 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 whose life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple, and Beetlejuice, a demon with a thing for stripes. When Lydia calls on Beetlejuice to scare away anyone with a pulse, this double-crossing specter unleashes a (Nether)world of pandemonium, and the biggest sandworm Broadway has ever seen.
