It's showtime! Beetlejuice begins Broadway performances at the Marquis Theatre tonight, and the musical has announced a digital lottery for its Broadway run.

A limited number of $45 tickets will be offered for each performance via the lottery. The lottery will be open for entries between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. the day before each performance. Winners will be notified by email once the lottery closes and will have one hour to claim and pay for their tickets online. Each person may request and purchase up to two tickets, and seat locations are subject to availability. Lottery seats may be partial view.

Beetlejuice, the musical adaptation of the 1988 Tim Burton film, first played Broadway in 2019 at the Winter Garden Theatre, earning eight Tony Award nominations including Best Musical. Tony nominee Alex Brightman stars as the titular ghost, who strikes up an unlikely friendship with a newly deceased couple and teaches them the ways of the afterlife. Meanwhile, he also plots a scheme to get Lydia, the new teenage tenant of the couple's old house, to help bring Beetlejuice back to life.

In addition to Brightman, original cast members returning include Tony Award nominee Kerry Butler, Obie Award Winner Adam Dannheisser, Leslie Rodriguez Kritzer, Kelvin Moon Loh, Danny Rutigliano, and Dana Steingold. David Josefsberg (who replaced original cast member Rob McClure) also returns, and Elizabeth Teeter joins in the role of Lydia.
