Broadway (or any theater really) set designers have to pull out all the maker magic they can. The New York Times takes a look at how the set of the new ‘Beetlejuice’ musical came together.

It almost takes longer to say “Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!” than for some of the scene changes to take place in the new Broadway musical based on the 1988 Tim Burton movie. Within minutes, sometimes seconds, workers must morph the traditional country home of the recently deceased Maitlands to the kitsch taste of the Deetzes, and then finally into a demon-infested haunted play land.

The eye-popping set is the brainchild of the scenic designer David Korins and the director Alex Timbers.
