About the show

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. Under its surface (six feet under, to be exact), it’s a touching show about family, love, and making the most of every Day-O!

See it if you are ready to laugh. It pays homage to Burton but is it’s own unique beast. It is quick witted and hilarious. An amazing original score!

Don't see it if quick flashing bright lights bother you. Or if you’re looking for a serious show.

"This show so overstuffs itself with gags, one-liners and visual diversions that you shut down from sensory overload...Brightman and 'Beetlejuice' can indeed sustain this anything-for-a-laugh intensity. And it is not a trait that benefits from prolonged exposure...Here, everybody, including every...

"Whatever else it may or may not be, 'Beetlejuice' is spectacularly weird...there are magic tricks and giant worms and a starkly linear idea of the afterlife that contrasts well with the chaotic world of the living. If only so much of the rest of 'Beetlejuice' were not a busy mess...It looks grea...

"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 truth is we’re not here for the sweet stuff; we’re here for the mayhem, and the show is...

"The show is a loving homage to a wonderfully weird original, reconceived for the stage with eye-popping design, full-throttle performances and a mischievous sense of fun...It's impossible to deny the virtuosic showmanship of lead actor Alex Brightman...The writers struggle to control the reins o...
