The scenic design by David Korins is a stunningly macabre tribute to Tim Burton himself and the production overflows with special effects by Jeremy Chernick and illusions by Michael Weber that are as jaw-dropping as they are heart-stopping. The movie is credited with firmly establishing Tim Burton as the Master of Macabre and the leader of the gothic fantasy genre. Produced by Warner Bros.

QuaranToons: Beetlejuice Is Going, 'Namaste, You Freakin' Posers.'
It is based on Tim Burton's film of the same name. When Lydia calls on Beetlejuice to scare away anyone with a pulse, he comes up with the perfect plan involving exorcism, arranged marriage and the biggest sandworms Broadway has ever seen. Beetlejuice then explains to the audience that he is a demon from hell and needs someone alive to say his name 3 times, so he can be seen by everyone and spread fear. After this, we are introduced to Adam and Barbara Maitland, a perfectly normal, slightly boring couple who are considering having a baby and starting a family. At the end of the song, they fall through the creaky floorboards of their house and die, with Beetlejuice gleefully watching. The three see Charles and his new mistress Delia moving into their house, and evacuate into the attic. Delia and Charles comment on the house, and wish to keep their affair a secret from Lydia.
Beetlejuice has effectively closed at the Winter Garden Theatre early, as the Broadway League has announced that theatres will remain dark through June 7. The musical was scheduled to close June 6; that announcement came in December as the upcoming revival of The Music Man secured the theatre for this fall. A national tour will continue as planned. Producers are also considering a move to another Broadway venue once shows resume, though no plans are in place. The production featured choreography by Connor Gallagher, music supervision and orchestrations by Kris Kukul, sets by David Korins , costumes by William Ivey Long , lighting design by Kenneth Posner , and sound design by Peter Hylenski.
