Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures (Mark Kaufman) and Langley Park Productions (Kevin McCormick) are pleased to announce Beetlejuice will launch a National Tour in the fall of 2021. Cities and dates to be announced shortly.
Along with the news regarding the tour, word has come that Beetlejuice will play its final performance at the Winter Garden Theatre (1634 Broadway) on Saturday, June 6, 2020. Final block of tickets now on sale for all performances through Saturday, June 6, 2020. Beetlejuice just broke the Winter Garden Theatre Box Office Record for 8 performances on the week ending December 1, 2019.
Beetlejuice opened on Broadway on Thursday, April 25, 2019, and was nominated for eight Tony Awards including Best New Musical. Beetlejuice won the Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics Circle Award for David Korins’ scenic design, and Sophia Anne Caruso won the Theatre World Award for her performance as Lydia.
Beetlejuice is directed by two-time Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers (Moulin Rouge!), with an original score by Tony Award nominee Eddie Perfect (King Kong), a book by Tony Award nominee Scott Brown (“Castle Rock”) & 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).
It’s showtime, folks! The ghost-with-the-most makes his Broadway debut 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.
Beetlejuice is the surprise hit of the 2018/2019 season, steadily increasing sales in the spring, with sales taking off in the summer following the musical’s Tony Awards performance which is the most viewed performance from CBS’s youtube channel with over 2,496,157 views. Beetlejuice‘s total advance has continued to increase over the past 17 consecutive weeks, and the average ticket price has continued to rise over that same period.
Beetlejuice on Broadway stars two-time Tony Award nominee Alex Brightman (Beetlejuice) in the title role, Theater World Award winner Sophia Anne Caruso (Lazarus) as Lydia, Tony Award nominee Kerry Butler (Mean Girls) as Barbara, David Josefsberg (The Prom) as Adam, Obie Award Winner Adam Dannheisser (Rock of Ages) as Charles, and Three-Time Drama Desk Award Nominee Leslie Kritzer.
