A thrilling tale of love and betrayal

Why See Death Becomes Her?


Would you choose eternal youth, no matter the cost?

A show truly to die for, the eagerly anticipated musical adaptation of the 1992 Universal Pictures movie is currently receiving standing ovations during its world premiere Chicago run, and is now set to make a spooky Broadway debut just in time for Halloween at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre starting October 23, with the curtains rising for its official opening night on November 21. Get ready for some afterlife antics with Death Becomes Her The Musical!

Producer and writer Marco Pennette transformed the show for the theater, which will be directed and choreographed by Tony-nominated Christopher Gattelli. Tony Award nominees Jennifer Simard and Megan Hilty take the lead roles as Helen Sharp and Madeline Ashton, former friends who now compete for the same man's affection, and find a solution that is simply to die for. This dark comedy is an essential addition to your diary, so get your tickets now!

What's it about?

Former friends Helen Sharp and Madeline Ashton develop a rivalry over the love of a man. They both take a potion of eternal youth, unaware of the side effects it brings. Supernatural drama ensues as the pair try to navigate their new lives!
