VIDEO: Go Behind The Scenes of BEETLEJUICE in South Korea in Our First Vlog Hosted by Matt DiCarlo

Beetlejuice is coming to South Korea! Matt DiCarlo is sharing his journey in restaging the international production.

We're taking you behind the scenes at Beetlejuice in South Korea with restaging director Matt DiCarlo! In this first installment, he's showing us his journey abroad, plus behind-the-scenes with the team and a FaceTime call with a certain ghost-with-the-most (Alex Brightman) and his dog Kevin!

Matt is a New York City based director and stage manager. He is heading to South Korea in the Spring of 2021 to re-stage Beetlejuice for its run in Seoul at the Sejong Center! He directed the recent North American tour and Off-Broadway production of The Play That Goes Wrong and was the Associate Director for the first national tour of The Color Purple and the second national tour of Rock of Ages.

Beetlejuice is based on the 1988 Academy Award®-winning Geffen Company motion picture presented by Warner Bros. and directed by Tim Burton. The smash hit comedy starred Michael Keaton, Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis, Jeffrey Jones, Catherine O'Hara and Winona Ryder with story by Michael McDowell and Larry Wilson.

The Broadway production of Beetlejuice played the Winter Garden Theatre from April 2019 to March 2020. During its run, the show was nominated for 8 Tony Awards including Best Musical and 7 Drama Desk Awards, with set designer David Korins winning the Hudson Scenic Award For Set Design For A Musical.

It was announced in October 2020 that the first Korean production of Beetlejuice, performed in the Korean language, will come to Seoul, South Korea. It is scheduled to open in June 2021, and perform a limited run through August at the Sejong Arts Center in Seoul.
