What we're geeking out over: Tickets for BEETLEJUICE's Broadway Return to Go On Sale Tomorrow

Tickets for BEETLEJUICE's return to Broadway will go on sale Friday, October 1, at 10am at BEETLEJUICE will be haunting Broadway's Marriott Marquis Theatre (210 west 46th Street) beginning Friday, April 8, 2022, with casting to be announced at a later date.

It's showtime, folks! The ghost-with-the-most makes his Broadway return in this edgy and irreverent musical comedy based on Tim Burton's dearly beloved film. BEETLEJUICE tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager whose life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple and Beetlejuice, a demon with a thing for stripes. When Lydia calls on Beetlejuice to scare away anyone with a pulse, this double-crossing specter unleashes a (Nether)world of pandemonium, and the biggest sandworm Broadway has ever seen.
