3.0 star rating from Norfolk, Virginia


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


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.

3.0 star rating Lou from Portland, Oregon


Almost impossible to understand most words, either spoken or sung. Suspect poor sound system

2.0 star rating Dixie williams from Norfolk, Virginia


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


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.

2.0 star rating Elizabeth from Baltimore, Maryland


While there were obviously some in the audience that enjoyed the show, I found it too weird and too long. Couldn’t wait for it to end. The talent of the leads, and the gorgeous costumes were the only highlights. I found the book to be odd, at best. The humor was raunchy, inane, and there were plot holes everywhere with very little character development . I regretted bringing my kids. Definitely not appropriate for ages 10+. I would say 13 or 14+, depending on the child. There are many sex jokes, including anal sex, and characters humping each other while clothed. Overall, one of the most poorly written shows I’ve seen in the last several years.

1.0 star rating John Snow from Detroit, Michigan


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.
