NYMF Musical Ghostlight Adds Performance
Ghostlight tells the true story of Olive Thomas, a small-town girl who rises to headline alongside Fanny Brice in the Ziegfeld Follies. Seduced by the decadent world of the theater, Olive stumbles into a secret affair, an unfulfilling Hollywood marriage, and a downward spiral into drugs and alcohol.
The production stars Michael Hayden as Florenz Ziegfeld, Jr., Rachel York as Billie Burke, Daisy Eagan as Molly Cook, Kimberly Faye Greenberg as Fanny Brice, Matt Leisy as Jack Pickford and Rachael Fogle in the central role of Olive Thomas.
The production will feature choreography by Michael Kidney, musical direction by Matt Aument, and scenic and lighting design by David Goldstein, costume design by Michelle Eden Humphrey, and sound Design by Julianne Merrill.
