David Josefsberg, last seen on Broadway in The Prom, will join the company of Beetlejuice beginning September 24. He’ll take on the role of Adam Maitland in the musical adaptation, currently playing the Winter Garden Theatre.

The actor replaces Tony nominee Rob McClure, who will take his final bow as the kind-hearted ghost September 22. McClure will go on to star in the world premiere of the Mrs. Doubtfire musical at Seattle's 5th Avenue Theatre, having recently headlined a reading of the Broadway aimed show.

Prior to The Prom, Josefsberg appeared on Broadway in Waitress, An Act of God, Honeymoon in Vegas (alongside McClure), Motown, The Wedding Singer, Grease, and Les Misérables.
