BWW Interview: Tony-Award Winning Costume Designer William Ivey Long Talks BEETLEJUICE, Design Process, and More
The North Carolina native caught up with BroadwayWorld Raleigh correspondent, Lauren Van Hemert, at his home to chat about his design process, the many Beetlejuice jackets, and his North Carolina roots.
The new musical comedy Beetlejuice will open on Broadway at the Winter Garden Theatre (1634 Broadway) on April 25, 2019.
Beetlejuice is directed by two-time Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers(Moulin Rouge!, Peter and the Starcatcher), with an original score by Eddie Perfect(King Kong), a book by Scott Brown & Emmy Award nominee Anthony King (Broad City), choreography by Connor Gallagher(The Robber Bridegroom), and music supervision, orchestrations and incidental music by Kris Kukul (Joan of Arc: Into the Fire).
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 tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and 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 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.
