She posted on her IG story that her Wednesday evening performance was her last show. I guess that’s it then.

She posted on her Instagram story something along the lines of; "To those who have booked tickets to see me in BTJ my final performance was Wednesday Eve (19th), and I will not be returning."

How random and "unusual." Wonder if there's tea to be spilled here.

Very shocked and saddened by this news. I saw her twice in the role and thought she was absolutely fantastic. I hope all is okay Sophia Caruso departs Beetlejuice

<<edited by BWW staff>>. She's one of the most interesting young actors out there. Curious to see what's next for her.

Although everyone loves to speculate about this stuff, it's tough to actually be fired from a Broadway show. There has to be a very strong just cause for it.

Right as I literally said Sabrina Carpenter would be the perfect Lydia! Too bad she's in Mean Girls.

WTF happened? If she got fired, we need the tea.

This is honestly really weird. Something must’ve happened, as I can’t think of the last time a principle actor, much less a lead left the show with absolutely no announcement of their final performance.

Sometimes producers would rather pay somebody to go away rather than having them continue to come to work and make everybody miserable.

That's unfortunate, she captured Lydia brilliantly. Awesome, powerful voice.

Seems like she wanted to be freed up for pilot season.

the Mods behavior here is amateur hour- i could care less about Beetlejuice, and I certainly think the Mods deserve credit to the extent they are trying to stay legal, but the notion that hearsay rumors need to be censored = a lil Trump era for me.

The mods are truly leading to the downfall of the message boards. Not only in the amount of posts, but in the quality of the posts.

Wonder how much ad revenue has gone down.

These contracts don't usually have "outs" that let an actor quit effective immediately.
