Video: How Alex Brightman Brings The BEETLEJUICE Voice Safely To Life
This afternoon, Broadway's Beetlejuice, Alex Brightman, shared an inside (no, really) look at the vocal technique behind the iconic growl that will help bring his garish ghoul to life eight times a week.
In some medical footage shared by Christine Estes, vocal therapist at The Sean Parker Institute for the Voice, Alex demonstrates healthy ventricular fold phonation, a technique which enables the actor to perform Beetlejuice's signature snarl while keeping his voice in tip top shape.
See the footage - if you dare - below!

Happy opening to the cast & crew of @BeetlejuiceBway, opening for previews TONIGHT! The incredibly talented @ABrightMonster created Beetlejuice's voice with healthy technique for Ventricular Fold Phonation!
