If you love the movie don't go to the show. It took the charm of the movie and substituted it was lewdness. For example in the play during Lydia and Beetlejuice's wedding there was a discussion about orgies. I don't recall that in the movie.

1.0 star rating Denise Doyen from Los Angeles, California


What a one-note, raunchy, baffoonish train wreck! Goes from loud, goofy and crass… to loud, goofy and crass … to (you guessed it) loud, goofy and crass. No finesse, no intelligent comic timing,, no feeling at all for what made the movie wonderful. We were appalled. The reworking of the story does NOT work. The choreography is mundane, the songs are NOT memorable. The cast had been directed to play everything for rip-shot corny jokes, to belt every song, to mug every emotion. Yikes!

1.0 star rating CT from Salt Lake City, Utah


Although the acting and musical talents were good, I was very disgusted with the swearing and crudeness. We left early.

Was expecting a fun evening at the Buell to see Beetlejuice but instead was so disappointed!!! The vulgarity, political jokes, constant sexual content, and F bombs were a complete turn off---THIS SHOW IS NOT FOR KIDS!!! I would have left during intermission but I was hoping it would get better---it didn't unfortunately. The actors did a good job with their singing but it wasn't enough to make this a show worth seeing.

Out of all the plays this season, this was the one I was looking forward to the most...boy was I disappointed! I am not uptight and expected some crude comments etc but this was beyond. You could barely understand any of the words sung-it was like a bad AGT audition. I couldn't think of one person I would have applauded after it was over, so we left. Don't waste your time or money.

1.0 star rating Amanda from Woodstock, Illinois


I love the movie Beetlejuice and look forward to the show but it was beyond a let down. If you have seen the movie do not go. I have been to numerous Broadways and by far the biggest let down by the writer. Beetlejuice was amazing but a small part. It was a waste of time and money.

1.0 star rating Kay Doro from Nashville, Tennessee


What did I see? The resemblance to the movie compared with the same character names, but was off the rails everywhere else. The main character, Betelgeuse, was occasionally funny. His slapstick comedy, political and sexual banter was lost on me! No comparison to the movie character so that was disappointment #1. Lydia’ singing seemed to improve as the night wore on, but couldn’t understand a word she said, or sang. A weak actor playing a vital role. Disappointment #2. Blinding lights! Costumes/sets mediocre. Music, forgettable. Disappointment #3 Best part of Betelgeuse? The mimosa I drank in lobby before the show.
