Beetlejuice 2022 on Broadway Background
A Wild Broadway Ride For Beetlejuice
Beetlejuice originally opened in previews at the Winter Garden Theatre on March 28, 2019. It officially opened with a red carpet opening on April 25, 2019 and then closed for the pandemic pause on March 11, 2020. It had been slated to close that year anyway to make room for the Hugh Jackman behemoth revival The Music Man that wanted to appear in that theatre.
Towards the end of its run, sales kept getting better and better. The show had a 30% rise in ticket sales and rebounded from the low point for which the stop clause was enacted. Despite Beetlejuice being ousted by the angry landlord, the Shubert Organization, from the Winter Garden Theatre, the show would still live on the Great White Way.
It was announced that the show would return to Broadway in 2022 at the Marriott Marquis theatre. That theatre had previously housed the musical Tootsie. The show had closed there on January 5, 2020, just before the pandemic took hold. This means that Beetlejuice gets another shot at pleasing its fans and recouping its investment for all its financial backers.
No Love Lost For The Shubert Organization
The Marriott Marquis theatre is owned by the Nederlander Theatre Organization. There is no love lost between The Shubert Organization, which has a long history of booting out successful shows for their own greed. Many fans wanted to boycott The Music Man to protest this decision, but as Beetlejuice is now coming back to the Marriott Marquis, that action may now be moot. What has not changed is The Shubert Organization's arrogance.
What’s Beetlejuice 2022 Like?
If a Broadway show that has plenty of 4-letter words, paranormal activity and a lot of blood appeals to your sensibilities, then this show is perfect for you and your family. Beetlejuice tells the story of Lydia Deetz, an outcast teenager who is obsessed with death, the deceased and the afterlife. Lydia moves into a new house with her parents and soon discovers the house is haunted by a recently deceased sweet couple and their degenerate demon from the "other side". When Lydia calls on this demonic apparition to scare away her insufferable parents, the demonic demon called Beetlejuice comes up with the a dastardly plan to get rid of them, a plan that will involve exorcism, a strange marriage and other outright evil acts.
Ruder, Meaner and Far More Ghastly Than the Original Burton Movie
Based on the original movie of the same name, Beetlejuice The Musical is back on Broadway and its ruder, meaner and far more ghastly than the original movie ever was.
Tim Burton’s wonderfully demented 1988 original film starred a young Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis and Michael Keaton. These actors brought the characters to life in such a stylistic way that the producers of this Broadway show want to recapture the magic, but with a far more contemporary pitch.
The 2022 Broadway show is directed by Alex Timbers (by way of Moulin Rouge) and it has a host of other Broadway names attached including choreography by Connor Gallagher, score by Eddie Perfect and the book by Scott Brown and Anthony King. With an out-of-town tryout at the National Theatre in Washington DC and a tall stack of bawdy jokes, Beetlejuice
