Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice Happy 30th Birthday

Alec Baldwin, Geena Davis and Winona Ryder were some of Hollywood’s hottest, youngest and brightest when Universal Studios released a little film about an eccentric ghost who haunted houses in the form of Michael Keaton.

Since 1988, Beetlejuice was one an attraction at the Universal Studios parks in the  form of a musical revue and now Beetlejuice takes crackpots at tourists walking throughout the park.

The original film, directed by Tim Burton, followed a deceased ghost couple, Adam (Alec Baldwin) and Barbara (Geena Davis), as they try to get rid of their home’s new, very-much-alive tenants. The dead duo gets a little help when Lydia (Winona Ryder), the daughter of the new homeowner, accidentally releases Betelgeuse, a trickster of a ghost who uses his creepy skills to drive out the tenants.

Though the sequel is rumored to be in the works.  Until then, casting for a musical version is currently underway, which will have a pre-Broadway run at the National Theatre in Washington, D.C. in October 2018.
