Beetlejuice to Record Original Broadway Cast Album
The new musical opened April 25 at the Winter Garden Theatre.
Ghoslight Records and Warner Bros. Records have announced plans to record an original Broadway cast album of Beetlejuice, now running at the Winter Garden Theatre. Produced by Matt Stine, Alex Timbers, Eddie Perfect, and Kurt Deutsch, the album will be recorded May 5, 6, and 13, and will be released later this year.
Beetlejuice is directed by two-time Tony nominee Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher), with original music and lyrics by Eddie Perfect (King Kong), a book by Scott Brown (Castle Rock) and Emmy nominee Anthony King (Broad City), music supervision, orchestrations, and incidental music by Kris Kukul (Joan of Arc: Into the Fire), and choreography by Connor Gallagher (The Robber Bridegroom).
The cast is led by Tony nominee Alex Brightman (School of Rock) in the title role and Sophia Anne Caruso (Lazarus) as Lydia, with Tony nominee Kerry Butler (Mean Girls) as Barbara, Tony nominee Rob McClure (Honeymoon In Vegas) as Adam, Adam Dannheisser (Rock of Ages) as Charles, and Leslie Kritzer (The Robber Bridegroom) as Delia.
Beetlejuice tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager whose life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple and Beetlejuice, a demon with a thing for stripes. When Lydia calls on Beetlejuice to scare away anyone with a pulse, this double-crossing specter unleashes a (Nether)world of pandemonium, and the biggest sandworm Broadway has ever seen.
