It’s because we said his name three times.October 3, 2018
Your favorite Halloween comedy Beetlejuice starring Michael Keaton in that iconic striped suit is coming back to movie theaters near you for a limited time.
In celebration of the film’s 30-year anniversary, fans can witness Tim Burton’s remastered film. You can’t miss the star-studded cast featuring the incredible Keaton, Winona Ryder, Alec Baldwin and many others back on the big screen for this weekend only. Audiences can even see Saturn’s sandworms crystal clear, too.
The U.S. doesn’t get to keep this special treat to itself. The movie will also be screened in France, Spain, the U.K., Switzerland, Taiwan, Australia and Latin America.
If the movie’s brief theater return isn’t exciting enough for your spooky feels, then just wait for its debut on Broadway. You read that right: Beetlejuice has been adapted from a screenplay to a musical and will be performed where live theater is done best.
Its run will begin in Washington, D.C. at the National Theatre Oct. 14-Nov. 18. The cast will then settle in New York City for Broadway’s spring 2019 season.
Beetlejuice has been cast as Alex Brightman, a Tony-nominated actor who portrayed Dewey Finn in School Of Rock on Broadway.
According to Broadway.com, Brightman is beyond excited to play the part of the wacky and wonderful Beetlejuice.
“If you told eight-year-old Alex Brightman that he would be bringing a millennia-old, bio-exorcist demon from hell to life onstage, that would probably make a lot of sense to him,” he says. “I’m bursting to show everyone what we’re cooking up with this show. It’s going to be a ridiculous and oddly heartwarming blast!”
The production recently cast its Lydia Deetz as Sophia Anne Caruso, who has appeared in Broadway ensemble’s before, but is making her debut as the starring role.
