The juice is loose over at the Winter Garden Theatre as Beetlejuice officially opens April 25 (having begin previews March 28). Tony nominee Alex Timbers directs the stage adaptation of the Tim Burton dark comedy, which features a score by Eddie Perfect and a book by Scott Brown and Anthony King.
The two are joined by Tony nominees Rob McClure and Kerry Butler as Adam and Barbara Maitland, Leslie Kritzer and Adam Dannheisser as Delia and Charles Deetz, Danny Rutigliano and Jill Abramovitz as Maxie and Maxine Dean, Kelvin Moon Loh as Otho, and Dana Steingold as a new addition to the story—a Girl Scout. Rounding out the company are Tessa Alves, Gilbert L. Bailey II, Will Blum, Johnny Brantley III, Ryan Breslin, Natalie Charle Ellis, Brooke Engen, Abe Goldfarb, Eric Anthony Johnson, Elliott Mattox, Mateo Melendez, Sean Montgomery, Ramone Owens, Presley Ryan, and Kim Sava.
Theatregoers with a competitive streak can also take part in It’s (Game) Showtime!, a weekly lottery event happening outside the theatre every Tuesday at 5:30 PM. Two lottery entrants will be selected to compete in a trivia game hosted by cast members, with the winner receiving two tickets to that evening’s show. The runner-up and additional entrants will then have the chance to purchase up to two tickets priced at $33.33. The series will kick off April 2 with Brightman himself hosting. The show will also offer a day-of general rush when the box office opens—limit two tickets per person, priced at $43 each.
