The pre-Broadway Beetlejuice has found its ghost and the teenager who summons him: Alex Brightman (School of Rock) will play the title character, and Sophia Anne Caruso, who knocked ’em dead with her rendition of “Life on Mars?” in the David Bowie Off-Broadway musical Lazarus, has been cast as Lydia.
The casting announcement was made today by producers Warner Bros. Theatre Ventures’ Mark Kaufman and Langley Park Productions’ Kevin McCormick.
Caruso played Young Norma Jean on NBC’s Smash, and Brigitta Von Trapp in that network’s The Sound of Music Live! She made her Off-Broadway debut in 2015’s The Nether, and later that year portrayed “The Girl” in the Bowie/Enda Walsh musical Lazarus, directed by Ivo van Hove, at the New York Theater Workshop. With her showstopping performance of Bowie’s great ballad “Life on Mars?”, she moved with the production when it transferred to London’s West End in 2016.
Performances in D.C. begin Sunday, October 14, with an official opening on Sunday, November 4.
