The Beetlejuice vinyl edition builds upon the remarkable success of the album, which became the top streaming Broadway cast recording of the 2018-2019 season, after hitting 100 million streams this week. “Say My Name,” one of the show’s breakout showstoppers, was chosen as Amazon’s “Alexa Song of the Day” last week. The incredible growth is a result of user-generated content on TikTok, where songs from the album have been used in over one million videos.
When Beetlejuice opened on Broadway, it was hailed as “an irreverent, funny roller-coaster ride to hell and back” by Newsweek, “a big, fantastical funhouse of Burtonesque magic” by People, and “a bold, shameless, nutty, brassy, rollicking piece of fun” by The Daily Beast. It was called “rowdy, cheeky and gleefully irreverent” by New York Magazine, “a morbidly magical new musical by Billboard, and “screamingly good fun, with off-the-wall humor and endless visuals and aural delights” by Variety.
Beetlejuice is directed by two-time Tony Award nominee Alex Timbers (Peter and the Starcatcher), with original music and lyrics by Tony Award nominee Eddie Perfect (King Kong), a book by Tony Award nominee Scott Brown (“Castle Rock”)& Emmy Award and Tony Award 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).

It’s showtime, folks! The ghost-with-the-most makes his Broadway debut in this edgy and irreverent musical comedy based on Tim Burton’s dearly beloved film. 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.
