Beetlejuice, the Musical @ The National Theatre

This opportunity is over; visit our calendar for up-to-date fun!

The ghost-with-the-most is coming to DC, live on stage in Beetlejuice, the Broadway Musical! Based on Tim Burton’s beloved film, see it just blocks from the Whitehouse at The National Theatre from May 16-28, 2023.

The title character of Beetlejuice (1988) is named for a bright red star in the constellation of Orion, Betelgeuse. The studio disliked the title and wanted to call the film House Ghosts. As a joke, Tim Burton suggested the name “Scared Sheetless” and was horrified when the studio actually considered using it.

This hilarious musical tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager whose whole life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple and a demon with a thing for stripes. With an irreverent book, an amazing set, and a score that’s out of this Netherworld, Beetlejuice is “Screamingly Good Fun!” (Variety). And, under its uproarious surface (six feet under, to be exact), it’s a remarkably touching show about family, love, and making the most of every Day-O!
