The West End is about to get a little weirder with the UK premiere of Beetlejuice, the funniest new musical this side of the other side.
It’s showtime, folks! Beetlejuice is ruder, raunchier and frankly, more repellent than ever in this original musical based on Tim Burton’s wonderfully demented film.
Beetlejuice is rumoured to open in London’s West End in 2021.
What’s the Story?
Lydia Deetz is a strange and unusual teenager who is 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 happens to have a thing for stripes.
When Lydia calls on this ghost-with-the-most to scare away her insufferable parents, Beetlejuice comes up with the perfect plan, which involves exorcism, arranged marriages and an adorable girl scout who gets scared out of her wits.
