Just when you thought that only demons get exorcised, you better think again! Humans and other earthly beings can also get exorcised from a house, and that’s where Beetlejuice comes in! The bio-exorcist tries to score himself a gig by murdering the unwitting couple, Adam and Barabara Maitland. The floorboards the couple were standing on started to shake, and they finally fell to their death. Beetlejuice burns the “The Handbook for the Recently Deceased,” so the couple will eventually ask for his guidance on the afterlife. The Deetz move into the Maitland’s house with the lonely and solemn Lydia, who recently lost her mother. After getting a living person to say his name three times, Beetlejuice appears to the Maitlands and declares he is here to help them exorcise living things out of their home. Meanwhile, Beetlejuice finds out that Lydia can see him. Will the Maitlands successfully drive away the new occupants in their house? Will Beetlejuice murder more people to achieve his goal?

This outstanding musical, based on the screenplay by Micahel McDowell, Larry Wilson, and Warren Skaaren, premiered in a 2018 trial run in Washington, D.C. The following year, Beetlejuice finally opened on Broadway and continued to run until March 2020. In 2022, the production reopened, and some original cast from the initial Broadway run to reprise their role.
Eddie Perfect wrote the musical and lyrics, while the storyline was created by Scott Brown and Anthony King. The creative also comprises award-winning director Alex Timbers, choreographer Connor Gallagher, scenic designer David Korins, and costume designer William Ivey Long. The musical is also lauded for its excellent team for their work in special effects, illusions, puppet design, physical movement coordination, and more. In 2023, Beetlejuice kicks off their touring production with numerous dates across major cities, including a pitstop in Seattle, Washington.

The Broadway Production of Beetlejuice earned several accolades, including eight Tony nominations, an Outer Critics Circle Award for Outstanding Set Design, a Drama League Award for Excellence in Directing, and a Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Set Design for a Musical. Meanwhile, the 1988 film itself accumulated an impressive number of accolades, including an Academy Award, a Saturn Award, and a Hugo Award. The musical has a few tweaks in its plot from the film’s original story.

The touring production will hold the same level of excellence as the Broadway run. The producers have brought in a stellar touring cast, comprising Justin Collete as Beetlejuice, Isabella Esler as Lydia, Megan McGinnis as Barbara, Will Burton as Adam, and more.

“A Jaw-dropping Funhouse!” – The New York Times

“A Gen-z Hit!” – Los Angeles Times

Beetlejuice received numerous rave reviews from critics during its Broadway run and its 2023 touring run. The Los Angeles Times described the musical as a breakthrough show catering to Gen Z audiences. The musical made some tweaks to focus more on new audiences that didn’t see the film. “The titular demon, famously played by Michael Keaton for only around 15 minutes of the movie, is given lots more stage time as the charismatic narrator of the musical. By making this joke at the very top of the show, he immediately declares its comedic sensibilities.” The critic continued that the role of Lydia is a highly relatable Gen Z character and resonates well with younger audiences.

Meanwhile, the MD Theater Guide described the musical as more of a rock concert and also paid compliments to the incredible scenic design. “If you’re looking for hours of escapist fun and spellbinding special effects, Beetlejuice is the show to see. It is a whirlwind of constant action, laughs, and superb vocal performances. Closer to a rock concert than a traditional musical.”
