World Premiere Prior To Broadway. Beetlejuice is ruder, raunchier and more repellant than ever in this musical based on Tim Burton’s wonderfully demented film. BEETLEJUICE tells the story of Lydia Deetz - an unusual teenager obsessed with the whole “being dead thing.” Lucky for Lydia, her new house is haunted by a recently deceased couple and a degenerate demon who has a thing for stripes. When she calls on this ghost-with-the-most to scare away her insufferable parents, Beetlejuice comes up with the perfect plan, which includes exorcism and arranged marriages. PARENTAL DISCRETION IS ADVISED. Contains strong language, mature references, and a lot of the crazy, inappropriate stuff you would expect from a deranged demon
