VIDEO: Go Behind the Scenes of BEETLEJUICE with Alex Brightman!

Just in time for Halloween, ABC News goes behind the scenes of the hit musical Beetlejuice to see how Broadway is bringing Beetlejuice back to life! ABC News' Will Ganss goes one-on-one with the ghost with the most himself, Alex Brightman.

Alex Brightman talks about the show while he's getting ready in his makeup chair, telling Ganss that, "Beetlejuice is the Deadpool of Broadway. Because, like Deadpool it knows it's a musical, I'm aware that I'm an actor playing a role, we poke fun of other Broadway shows, we poke fun at our show."

Watch the segment below!

It's showtime, folks! The ghost-with-the-most makes his Broadway debut 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.

Beetlejuice stars Alex Brightman in the title role, Sophia Anne Caruso as Lydia, Kerry Butler as Barbara, David Josefsberg as Adam, Adam Dannheisser as Charles, and Leslie Kritzer as Delia, with Jill Abramovitz as Maxine Dean, Kelvin Moon Loh as Otho, Danny Rutiglianoas Maxie Dean, and Dana Steingold as the Girl Scout, in a cast of 25 that includes Tessa Alves, Gilbert L. Bailey II, Will Blum, Johnny Brantley III, Ryan Breslin, Natalie Charle Ellis, Brooke Engen, Abe Goldfarb, Eric Anthony Johnson, Elliott Mattox, Mateo Melendez, Sean Montgomery, Ramone Owens, Presley Ryan and Kim Sava.
