Beetlejuice: a mix of dark comedy, dark humour and poignant moments

in Czech with English subtitles

The world of the living versus the world of the dead. One of the most attractive topics since ancient times. In 1988, the acclaimed director Tim Burton treated it with the lightness and exaggeration inherent in his cult film Beetlejuice. The Oscar-winning film made an indelible mark on cinema history, if only because it paved the way for the horror fantasy comedy genre for decades to come.

The current musical adaptation of Beetlejuice, written by Scott Brown, Anthony King and composer and lyricist Eddie Perfecto, is in no way inferior to the original and, on the contrary, very tastefully and aptly takes the story to a more modern plane with elements of the latest theatrical tricks, magic and lighting effects.

The musical comedy, which had its world premiere in 2016 (Broadway, New York), follows a young girl, Lydia, who is constantly searching for a way to cope with the death of her beloved mother. Instead of her father Charles, who is blinded by his ethereal priestess Delia, her only listeners in her torment are the ghosts, Barbara and Adam. It is their house, against their wishes, that Lydia and her father and his mistress have moved into. The creature that brings even more chaos to the whole situation is the eccentric and amusing demon Beetlejuice, whose intentions are as impure as his teeth. As is the case with many dramas, love remains the prime mover here, showing itself in many forms and demonstrating its immortality to the viewer in addition to a riveting visual show.
