Here is why we at Broadway Inbound think it’s a perfect show for groups:
The Beetlejuice musical tells the story of the fan-favorite movie in a unique Broadway style. The show features an all-new score by the Australian composer Eddie Perfect and a book by Scott Brown and Anthony King. Follow the titular demon Beetlejuice, the unlucky couple, and the odd teenage girl, Lydia, on a spooky journey filled with both horror and hilarity. Whether your group is made up of fans of the original movie or complete newbies to this Burton story, you will delight at this rendition of the ghostly tale. Nothing spells fun for a group like a good ol’ ghost story, and Beetlejuice has plenty of them. (Don’t worry: We won’t tell you how it ends.)
Beetlejuice is a combination of horror, whimsy, and tongue-in-cheek wit. You’ll be quoting its clever one-liners for days after the show.
True love knows no bounds—even death. Although, on the surface, Beetlejuice is a story of a creepy ghost, deep down, it’s first of all human. Love runs through the musical like a red line, from Lydia’s love for her mother that sets the story in motion to the love of the married couple who only tried to build a life in their new home. Beetlejuice feels true to the original film and has a great sense of humor, but it also has a lot of heart. It’s a show that feels like a journey, that keeps you on the edge of your seat but also makes you smile. And there’s a unique feeling of compassion even in Lydia’s plan to bring Beetlejuice to life for one second just to stab him, which helps him realize the true value of life.
The musical is based on Tim Burton’s movie, which has become a Halloween staple for millions of people and has fans all over the world. So, if you’re searching for a show to see on Broadway with a group and they’re Tim Burton fans, this is the show for you! It’s Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!
