Beetlejuice the Musical is to return to haunt Broadway in 2022!
Adapted from the 1988 film of the same name, Beetlejuice the musical first opened in New York in 2019 where it was nominated for eight Tony Awards.
The show became a huge hit with audiences before being forced to prematurely close in March 2020 amid the pandemic.
Now producers have announced that the show will return at a new venue, opening at the Marriott Marquis Theatre on 8 April 2022.
Casting is to be confirmed for the new run. The original Broadway cast featured Alex Brightman in the title role with Sophia Anne Carus, Rob McClure, Kerry Butler, Leslie Kritzer and Adam Dannheisser.
Producers Mark Kaufman (Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures) and Kevin McCormick (Langley Park Productions) said: “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.
“We sincerely thank the Beetlejuice fans; it is because of their support that we will be able to blow the roof off the Marquis Theatre three-times over with fun and laughter, laughter and laughter!”
Beetlejuice the musical features a score by Eddie Perfect with a book by Scott Brown and Anthony King, direction by Alex Timbers and scenic design by David Korins.
Meanwhile there’s been rumours of a West End production of Beetlejuice.
Alongside the Broadway production, producers recently announced a new international version in South Korea – here’s hoping the UK will be next!
