The new musical adaptation of Beetlejuice has released two songs from its Broadway bow. Listen to "Dead Mom," sung by Sophia Anne Caruso as Lydia, above.
Based on the 1988 film of the same name, Beetlejuice centers on goth teen Lydia (Caruso), who teams up with the rambunctious demon Beetlejuice (Alex Brightman) in an effort to scare off her dad and stepmother (Adam Dannheisser and Leslie Kritzer) and away from their new home, still occupied by the ghosts of its recently deceased previous owners (Rob McClure and Kerry Butler). Alex Timbers directs the production, which has a book written by Scott Brown and Anthony King and a score by Eddie Perfect.
Beetlejuice is set to open April 25 at the Winter Garden Theatre on Broadway, where it has been playing in previews since March 28. The production features sets by David Korins, costumes by William Ivey Long, lighting design by Kenneth Posner, and sound design by Peter Hylenski. Casting is by Telsey + Co’s Rachel Hoffman, CSA.
Details of a cast recording are expected to be announced shortly.
