Ghost the Musical to Open April 23 at Broadway's Lunt-Fontanne logo
Ghost the Musical, adapted from the Oscar-nominated 1990 film, will play Broadway's Lunt Fontanne Theater, with previews beginning in March 2012, and an opening set for April 23. As previously reported, Tony Award winner Matthew Warchus will direct, with choreography by Ashley Wallen.

With music and lyrics by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard, and a book by Bruce Joel Rubin, the show tells the story of a man who is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next and who is trying to communicate with his girlfriend through a phony psychic in the hope of saving her from his murderer.

The score includes the iconic song "Unchained Melody," famously performed in the film by The Righteous Brothers. Broadway casting will be announced at a later date.

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.
