Alex Brightman Says June 6 is 'Not the End of BEETLEJUICE'
Alex Brightman revealed that there is still hope that Beetlejuice will relocate, after it departs the Winter Garden Theatre in June.
Nancy Coleman, from The New York Times, attended the Beetlejuice panel at BroadwayCon. She tweet a quote from Brightman, stating that the musical is not expected to disappear this summer.
"There is absolutely no reason to give up hope," Brightman said. "Until we know anything further, it is not the end of Beetlejuice on June 6."
