Kerry Butler (who plays "Barbara Maitland" in the show) and Geena Davis (who played "Barbara Maitland" in the 1988 film) pose backstage at the Broadway musical "Beetlejuice" at The Winter Garden Theatre on Sept. 21, 2019 in New York City. 

On Saturday (Sept. 21), Geena Davis stopped by the Broadway production of Beetlejuice for a trip down memory lane.

Clad in a maroon-and-white striped top, Davis posed backstage at the Winter Garden Theater grinning ear-to-ear with Broadway star Kerry Butler, who plays Barbara, the same role Davis originated in the 1988 film. Grinning ear-to-ear, Davis holds a prop version of the Handbook for the Recently Deceased used in the show as the Tony Award winner playfully looks on.

During her set visit, Davis also met with Alex Brightman, who plays the titular role made famous by Michael Keaton and Sophia Anne Caruso, who plays Lydia. The star even made an appearance on stage after the final curtain to surprise the audience.

Since rising to fame in the film version of Beetlejuice, Davis has gone on to win both an Academy Award (for 1989’s The Accidental Tourist) and a Golden Globe (for the short-lived Commander in Chief). Most recently, the veteran actress appeared in a six-episode guest arc on the Netflix original series Glow.
