Through Tiktok, YouTube and other social media platforms, Beetlejuice has attracted a new and engaged crowd to Broadway. For a total of 679 Broadway performances, the production had 313 regular performances and 366 performances at the Winter Garden Theatre.
Beeetljuice first premiered on Broadway on Thursday, April 25, 2019. It was presented by Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures, Mark Kaufman and Langley Park Productions, Kevin McCormick. The musical won Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics Circle Award due to David Korins’ scenic design. Beetlejuice was nominated for eight Tony Awards including “Best New Musical.”
Beetlejuice is based on the 1988 Academy Award®-winning Geffen Company motion picture presented by Warner Bros. and directed by Tim Burton. The musical tells the story of Lydia Deetz, an unconventional teenager whose life changes after encountering a recently deceased couple and the white faced green haired demon, Beetlejuice. When Beetlejuice is called by Lydia to frighten anyone with a pulse, this double-crossing specter unleashes a (Nether)world of pandemonium, and the biggest sandworm Broadway has ever seen.
