Beatle Juice

Another fun activity we did at Universal Studios Orlando was the Beatle Juice Graveyard Review. I was continually amazed at the quality of the productions we saw both at Universal and at Disney. I felt as though I got to see several Broadway shows within two days.

The one thing I will say about the Beatle Juice show for some of my conservative friends (and you probably already know this if you’ve seen the movie) is that the characters make a number of double meaning adult jokes. Kids would love the costumes and the lights and the dancing and singing, and probably would completely miss the jokes anyway – but I’m just letting you know.

I loved it. The review had a number of rock’n roll classics played by various graveyard characters such as Dracula, Frankenstein and the Bride of Frankenstein – and of course Beatle Juice himself.

I had wondered if they were just acting the parts and not really singing because the singing was so good. It was so hot and the costumes plus the lights – it must have been so hot and to be dancing and singing up there at the same time without the least bit of breathlessness. But then I noticed they all had headset mics on, so they weren’t just lipping the words. Amazing.
