The musical adaptation of Tim Burton’s Beetlejuice, written by Tony nominees Eddie Perfect (score) and Scott Brown and Anthony King (book), celebrated 100 performances on Broadway July 23. Following its April 25 opening at the Winter Garden Theatre, the musical would go on to be nominated for eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical.
Directed by Tony nominee Alex Timbers, Beetlejuice stars Tony nominee Alex Brightman (School of Rock) in the title role and Sophia Anne Caruso (Lazarus) as Lydia Deetz, the death-obsessed teen who summons the bio-exorcist demon.
