The ghost-with-the-most comes to life on stage in this new musical based on Tim Burton’s dearly beloved film. Directed by Alex Timbers ("Moulin Rouge!"). More…
"Beetlejuice" tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager whose whole life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple and a demon with a thing for stripes.
