Kerry Butler, Danny Pudi, Alex Brightman and the Cast of BEETLEJUICE Workshop Share Behind the Scenes Photos

Say his name three times and he might just arrive on Broadway!

As BroadwayWorld previously reported, Alex Timbers is hard at work on a musical adaptation of the 1988 cult-classic, Beetlejuice.

A workshop of the musical has just ended, check out behind the scenes photos from the cast including Kerry Butler, Danny Pudi (who played the Maitlands), and Alex Brightman (who starred as Beetlejuice himself!).

Beetlejuice, a malevolent spirit masquerading as a guide to the Netherworld meets the Maitlands, a recently deceased couple learning the ropes of haunting their own home. But when angst-ridden Lydia Deetz moves into the Maitland house with her family, Beetlejuice launches a havoc-wrecking quest that forces the Maitlands to confront what it means to be fully dead and Lydia to confront what it means to be fully alive.
The musical is based on the 1988 comedy/fantasy film of the same name from Warner Brothers. The film, which starred Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Catherine O'Hara, Jeffrey Jones, and Winona Ryder was a critical and commercial success grossing $73.7 million from a budget of $15 million. It won the Academy Award for Best Makeup and three Saturn Awards: Best Horror Film, Best Makeup and Best Supporting Actress for Sylvia Sidney, her final award before her death in 1999.
