“Beetlejuice” announced Monday that it will reopen on Broadway, this time at the Marriott Marquis Theatre, with a first performance scheduled for April 8, 2022.
The original creative team, led by director Alex Timbers, will remain in place for the musical’s return. Casting details are expected shortly.
Tickets for the musical’s return engagement will go on sale Oct. 1 via Ticketmaster.
“Beetlejuice” previously played the Winter Garden Theatre until the production halted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. It had been scheduled to vacate that theater in June 2020 due to the Shubert Organization’s invocation of a stop clause in the production’s agreement. The move was made in order to make room for the revival of “The Music Man,” which is now set to begin performances at the Winter Garden on December 20, 2021, after having been delayed due to the pandemic.
It was previously reported that “Beetlejuice” was considering a move to a different theater since its weekly grosses had rebounded from the low point for which the stop clause was enacted.
A press release from the production’s press representatives attributes the musical’s 2022 return to overwhelming fan demand. “We sincerely thank the Beetlejuice fans; it is because of their support that we will be able to blow the roof off the Marquis Theatre three-times over with fun and laughter, laughter and laughter!” producers Mark Kaufman and Kevin McCormick said in the release.
