Broadway Marquee: GHOST The Musical

Ghost, the new musical starring Caissie Levy and Richard Fleeshmanas Molly Jensen and Sam Wheat will open on Broadway at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. Previews will begin on Thursday, March 15, 2012, in anticipation of a Monday, April 23rd opening. Directed by Tony Award winner Matthew Warchus and choreographed by Ashley Wallen, Ghost The Musical is created by a team of Grammy and Academy Award winners, with a brand new, original score by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard, with a book by Bruce Joel Rubin, who has adapted his Academy Award winning original screenplay for the stage. This brand new score also includes the iconic song "Unchained Melody," famously performed in the film by The Righteous Brothers. Set in modern day New York City, Ghost The Musical is a timeless fantasy about the power of love. Walking back to their apartment one night, Sam and Molly are mugged, leaving Sam murdered on a dark street. Sam is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next and unable to leave Molly, who he learns is in grave danger. With the help of a phony storefront psychic, Oda Mae Brown, Sam tries to communicate with Molly in the hope of saving and protecting her. Set and costume designs are by Rob Howell, with musical supervision and arrangements by Christopher Nightingale, illusions by Paul Kieve, lighting design by Hugh Vanstone, sound design by Bobby Aitken, and projection design by Jon Driscoll.
