BEETLEJUICE

We had a hard time understanding what was being said, musics too loud or cast was screaming their lyrics, it was just ok

3.0 star rating Mike N from Dallas, Texas

POOR SOUND QUALITY, OBNOXIOUS LIGHTING

The cast was great, some good humor - if not a bit edgy at many spots. As with reviews from other venues, the sound was terrible with some lyrics and dialogue undistinguisible. The lighting effects around the stage were WAY overblown and simply blinding at several points. I did not return from intermission but waited for my family in the lobby and watched on the hallway monitors.

BEETLEJUICE

i was so disappointed. we had an understudy and his singing got lost in the chorus singers, the sound was bad (we didn't even hear one of the punch lines of the football player), and the delivery was just poor on the main character. i love broadway, but this made me want to leave at intermission(i didn't, but it left me with an underwhelming feeling for norfolk broadway)

2.0 star rating from San Antonio, Texas

SHOULD BE FAMILY-FRIENDLY, BUT NOT

I would hope a musical like Beetlejuice would be family friendly - it is NOT. Unfortunately, like many shows now a days - this was infused with distasteful jokes about Beetlejuice wanting to have sex with male audience members, political jokes, a scene where Beetlejuice simulates having sex with another man on a chair and the list goes on. Just know what you are getting into because the title of the show may exude family-friendly and it is not. Disappointing. I could have been a GREAT show without all that... Gave it 2 stars because the talent was terrific for the two lead actors...writers sunk the ship.

A FAR DEPARTURE FROM THE MOVIE

They changed a masterpiece and missed the mark terribly. They wanted to center the show around Beetlejuice, but he was overwhelming with six over the top jokes every minute. They even changed the signature songs. I would not recommend to anyone who loves the movie.

1.0 star rating Joe Conrad from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

VERY DISAPPOINTED IN THE SHOW

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

TOTALLY MISSES TONE, MESSAGE AND ART OF MOVIE

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!
