The new musical, based on the Tim Burton favorite, opened April 25.

The musical adaptation of Beetlejuice celebrated its official opening (the last of the 2018–2019 Broadway season) at the Winter Garden Theatre April 25. The show, directed by Alex Timbers, haunts New York following a Washington, D.C. world premiere.

Inspired by the Tim Burton dark comedy, the new take on the fast-talking ghost with the most (and those he terrorizes) features a book by Scott Brown and Anthony King and an original score by Eddie Perfect. Tony nominee Alex Brightman stars as the title bio-exorcist, with Sophia Anne Caruso sharing center stage as the death-obsessed Lydia Deetz.
