From the first note, there is no doubt that Beetlejuice The Musical is a show about death! In this case, death is a laughing matter and you still have a few chances to get in on the fun. The show is running through Sunday, February 11 at Bass Concert Hall.
Part of the Broadway in Austin series, the show brings some big talent to the ATX. Many of the cast members in this touring production have appeared in well known shows on Broadway. This includes the man playing Beetlejuice himself, Justin Collette who previously starred as Dewey Finn in School of Rock.
Taking on the role of Lydia (played by Winona Ryder in the film), Isabella Esler makes her professional debut and, wow, it’s hard to believe this is her first show. Expect to see a lot more of her in the future.
As expected, the show is packed with timely jokes and lots of laughter. We highly recommend you jump in the line and get tickets if you still can.
