Coming to Detroit: Beetlejuice The Musical

Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Beetlejuice. Looks like Detroit said his name three times, because Beetlejuice will be making his way to the Detroit Opera House in early 2023, and tickets go on sale Friday, November 4th at 10:00 a.m. Beetlejuice is another one of those shows that’s on my Broadway bucket list, so I am beyond excited it’ll be making an appearance in Detroit soon!

Beetlejuice The Musical
Detroit Opera House
January 31 – February 12, 2023

Tickets go on sale November 4th, 2023

It’s showtime! The ghost-with-the-most will make his Detroit debut in this edgy and irreverent new Broadway musical comedy. BEETLEJUICE will play at the Opera House from January 31 – February 12, 2023, as part of Broadway In Detroit’s 2022-23 Season. Tickets go on sale Friday, November 4 at 10:00 a.m. and will be available online at Ticketmaster.com, BroadwayinDetroit.com, charge by phone (800) 982-2787, and in person at the Fisher Theatre Box Office.

Based on Tim Burton’s dearly beloved film, BEETLEJUICE tells the story of Lydia Deetz, a strange and unusual teenager whose life changes when she meets a recently deceased couple and Beetlejuice, a demon with a thing for stripes. When Lydia calls on Beetlejuice to scare away anyone with a pulse, this double-crossing specter unleashes a (Nether)world of pandemonium, and the biggest sandworm Broadway has ever seen.

BEETLEJUICE is directed by Tony Award® winner Alex Timbers (Moulin Rouge!, Director of Warner Bros. forthcoming TOTO, the animated musical film adaptation of Michael Morpurgo and Emma Chichester Clark’s 2017 book) with an original score by Tony Award nominee Eddie Perfect (King Kong); a book by Tony Award nominee Scott Brown (“Castle Rock”) and Tony and Emmy Award® nominee Anthony King (“Robbie”); music supervision, orchestrations and incidental music by Kris Kukul (Joan of Arc: Into the Fire); and choreography by Connor Gallagher (The Robber Bridegroom).

LaPointe; make-up design by Joe Dulude; physical movement coordinator Lorenzo Pisoni; casting by Telsey + Company and Rachel Hoffman, CSA; dance arrangements by David Dabbon; music producing by Tony Award winner Matt Stine; associate director Catie Davis; associate choreographer Nancy Renee Braun; and line producer Jenny Gersten.

BEETLEJUICE opened on Broadway on Thursday, April 25, 2019, presented by Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures (Mark Kaufman) and Langley Park Productions (Kevin McCormick), and won the Drama Desk Award and Outer Critics Circle Award for David Korins’ scenic design and was nominated for eight Tony Awards including Best New Musical. BEETLEJUICE had a history making run on Broadway – following the release of the musicals original Broadway cast recording and Tony Awards appearance, the box office exploded, making it the surprise hit of the 2018/2019 season. BEETLEJUICE’s Tony Awards performance has gone on to be the most watched musical number from the broadcast with over 3,921,530 views. BEETLEJUICE became a sensation with fans everywhere including on TikTok, which lead to an additional burst of ticket sales from a new audience for Broadway, making the musical one of the top grossing shows on Broadway, going on to break the Winter Garden box office record. The smash hit musical BEETLEJUICE played 366 performances at the Winter Garden Theatre on Broadway before being shuttered with the rest of Broadway on March 12, 2020. BEETLEJUICE returned to Broadway on April 8, 2022, at the Marquis theatre and will continue its Broadway engagement till January 8, 2023.

In addition, “Say My Name,” one of the show’s breakout showstoppers, was chosen as Amazon’s “Alexa Song of the Day” in 2019.

Movie Review: Ticket to Paradise

Ticket to Paradise transcends us as movie-goers to places that we haven’t visited lately—the classic romantic territory, and I am beyond ecstatic about this. Ticket to Paradise is full of laughs, brilliant on-screen chemistry, and stunning views you won’t want to miss when it hit a theater near you this weekend.

If you are a rom-com movie fan like I am, you know that they’ve been greatly lacking, and by lacking I mean nonexistent. That is until tomorrow October 21, 2022, when Ticket to Paradise hits the big screen and will have you laughing, loving, and feeling wanderlust.

Ticket to Paradise follows Georgia (Julia Roberts) and David (George Clooney), a divorced couple who just can’t seem to get along, but are forced to place nice when their daughter graduates from college and then later emails them saying she’s getting married in Bali. Are you loving the vibes already? Roberts and Clooney have incredible on-screen chemistry, they’re hilarious and you can tell they had a ton of fun making the movie as the lighthearted fun spills over into Ticket to Paradise.

The couple doesn’t want their daughter to have a shotgun wedding, especially one that will repeat their mistakes. Of course, the movie isn’t that simple and the couple has underestimated their daughter’s future hubby and his family. Their daughter Lily (Kaitlyn Dever) and her friend Wren – my fave character (Billie Lourd) work to keep the wedding on the correct path. But you know I can’t spoil everything for you.

Enjoy the best rom-com we’ve seen all year when Ticket to Paradise comes to a theater near you this weekend.

P.S. I would go see this movie again.

Nomadik Subscription Review: On the Go Box

I received this Nomadik subscription box in exchange for my honest review.

We can all agree life is busy, and sometimes we forget to stop and take time for ourselves. One of my favorite ways to take time for myself is by spending time in nature—but like all of us, sometimes life gets so busy I forget to take that time. This month’s Nomadik box, called On the Go was a good reminder to take some time for myself. I’m sharing all the details about what came in the box, and my overall thoughts below.

What was in the On The Go Subscription Box?

Nectar Chucktown Polarized Sunglasses

The sunglasses are unisex, and have a basic square frame that is flattering for most faces. The glasses feature polarized lenses, a sleek fit, and recycled frames. They’re comfortable and lightweight and perfect for any adventure.

Vapur Elements 1L Anti-Bottle

Hands down my new favorite water bottle. It’s reusable, foldable, attachable, and freezable. When do you get all of that in one water bottle? You don’t, and that’s why it’s my favorite.

Chums Universal Fit Eyewear Retainer—5mm

Have you ever gone out on an adventure, but come home without your sunglasses? Yes, me too. The Chums retainer always you to adventure with the confidence that you’re going to come home with your sunglasses.

Munk Pack Keto Granola Bar—Almond Butter Cocoa Chip

Keto, plant-based, gluten-free, grain-free, and less sugar than most granola bars. Shockingly pretty good too.

Overall thoughts

Even though the Nomdik On The Go box wasn’t my favorite, I prefer the adventure and outdoor gear it did remind me to turn my go-go-go life into something on-the-go in nature. The hike was everything I needed at that moment.
