After being forced to close prematurely in March 2020 amid the pandemic, the show has reopened on Broadway this week at its new home in the Marriott Marquis Theatre.

Alex Brightman returns to the title role with Elizabeth Teeter as Lydia Deetz. They’re joined by David Josefsberg, Kerry Butler, Leslie Kritzer and Adam Dannheisser.

To celebrate its reopening, you can watch the show’s full opening number in the video below!

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.

It tells the story of ‘bio-exorcist’ Betelgeuse (pronounced Beetlejuice) who attempts to help a recently deceased couple to haunt their former home.

It follows Beetlejuice as he forms an unlikely friendship with the new homeowner’s daughter, a young girl struggling to cope with her mother’s death.

An original cast recording is available to stream, download or buy on CD and Vinyl here.

Meanwhile there’s been rumours of a West End production of Beetlejuice set for 2023 but as of writing nothing has been officially announced.

Alongside the Broadway production, the musical was also recently staged in South Korea.
