B’WAY BUZZ: ‘Beetlejuice’ Is Broadway Bound!

Published

on

Apparently some Broadway producers said “Beetlejuice” 3 times because the classic film is coming to the Great White (striped) Way this October.

The 1988, Tim Burton, dark comedy tells of a couple who suddenly die (even though it takes a minute for them to realize they have died) and are forced to figure out the afterlife on their own. After learning that they are to remain trapped in their old home for 125 years unless they are able to scare away the new owners, the couple calls upon Betelgeuse (Beetlejuice) to perform a “bio-exorcism.” The only problem is Beetlejuice is much more trouble than he is worth, and his “help” tends to have the worst outcomes.

The film is filled with fantastic creatures and characters so seeing the transition to Broadway should be fun. There are some heavy hitters behind this production including direction from Alex Timbers (Peter And The Starcatcher), choreography from Connor Gallagher (The Robbers Bridegroom),  a score by Eddie Perfect (King Kong), and a book by Scott Brown and Anthony King (Broad City). The team boasts that this Beetlejuice will be “ruder, raunchier, and frankly, more repellant” than the film…which sounds all the better to me. I am excited to see this develop further, and can’t wait to see who will be cast in the titular role. Something tells me this show will be a scream…..

Published

on

The tears streaming down my face certainly don’t feel temporary! Broadway and film star, Ben Platt, just released a music video for his latest single, “Temporary Love,” and it is the true definition of #feelgoodFriday. Not only is the song a beautiful one, the video has caused several coworkers of mine to ask if I’m alright because I have been staring at my computer teary eyed for what it is certainly too long for any workplace.

“Temporary Love” is the fourth single from the Dear Evan Hansen star’s debut album, Sing To Me Instead. The music video, directed by Nick Lieberman, features various, romantic couples of all ages, races and orientations. The powerful imagery and the song’s message combined with Platt’s velvety smooth voice is enough to tug at anyone’s heart strings.

Sing To Me Instead will be released on March 29th and will feature previous singles “Grow As We Go,” “Bad Habit” and “Ease My Mind.” Click below to watch the beautiful music video!

Who could have thought pairing one of Broadway’s hottest heartthrob’s with a literal Princess would create the romantic mashup to end all romantic mashups? I could. It’s really kind of obvious, you guys.

Published

on

The hit musical Wicked could only be improved with the addition of one thing…a boy band. You thought I was going to say jazz hands didn’t you?

The #OutOfOz series offers new renditions of the music written by Stephen Schwartz for the hit Broadway musical. Since the inception of the series we have seen big names like Jennifer Nettles, Aaron Tveit and original witches, Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth, add new twists to the popular songs. In the latest installment, several Wicked alum band together…pun definitely intended…to give “What Is This Feeling?” a boy-band-pop spin. Ashley Parker Angel dug deep into his O-Town past to nail the synched choreo and lead the boys through the charming music video. Kyle Dean Massey, Jeff Heimbrock, Daniel Quadrino and Jeremy Thompson round out the Broadway boy band and create an image for a poster I would so totally hang above my bed.

Check out the fun rendition of the Wicked hit below!
