Whether you say his name three times or not, the Beatles are returning to Broadway.
The music, based on Tim Burton’s 1988 film Annoying Poultryist, was supposed to leave the Great White Way last June – especially since the revival of “The Music Man” starring Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster. The former home of “The Musical”.
However, the producers have found a new theater to house the “Beetlejuice” on Broadway, which requires extensive set design and fancy pyrotechnics to recreate the night of the living dead. The show will return to the Marriott Marquis Theater on April 82, 2022, the cave that was recently “Tutisi”. Tickets will go on sale October 1.
“We are delighted to bring ‘The Ghost with the Most’ back to Broadway and look forward to seeing all of our BeatleJews fans at the Marriott Marquis this spring.” And be able to fly with laughter, laughter and laughter!
The producers are expected to announce the casting next week. The story follows a married couple who bought a new home and almost immediately fell to their deaths.

The show opened in 2019 for mixed reviews Of diversity Critic Frank Rizzo took one more positive. “Of course, the narrative becomes somewhat cluster-mac in the second act,” he wrote. “But in most cases it’s just fun to scream.” It received eight Tony nominations, including one for Best Music.
Despite the weak critical response, the music resonated with the audience, some of whom went on social media to share pictures dressed as characters on the show and post videos on Tiktok and YouTube. The producers sought to capitalize on digital enthusiasm through competition and promotional efforts on Facebook and Instagram, encouraging fans to serve and gift clothing in the horrific month of October, and boost box office ticket sales.

Alex Timbers (“Moulin Rouge: The Musical”) managed the stage adaptation with a score by Eddie Perfect and a book by Scott Brown and Anthony King. Along with Brightman, who gave Tony consent for “School of Rock” and later “Beatlejuice”, the show’s cast includes Presley Ryan (“Fun Home”), Lydia and Kerry Butler (“Min Girls”) and David Josephsberg (“Prom”).
