As the curtain goes up on the 443rd performance of Ghost the Musical tonight, 23rd April 2012, Broadway officially welcomes Ghost to the Great White Way.  The show is only just over 12 months old yet has already played 3 major theatrical hubs now adding New York to London and Manchester, the latter where Ghost was born in March 2011.


Whilst many changes have been made to the Broadway version ahead of it’s opening including 3 song changes and some staging inprovements two people remain ever present in the show continuing in their roles they created for the stage, Sam and Molly.   


Caissie Levy returns to the Broadway stage following her successful runs in Wicked and Hair as Molly Jensen whilst Broadway newbie Richard Fleeshman makes his debut as the ‘Ghost’ Sam Wheat.  Also making her debut on Broadway is Da’Vine joy Randolph who recreates the role of Oda Mae Brown, one she performed for a limited time in London earlier this year stepping in for Sharon D Clarke who succombed to a leg injury just before Christmas.


The devil of the piece, Carl Bruner is played by Bryce Pinkham and is joined by other principles Lance Roberts (Hospital Ghost), Tyler McGee (Subway Ghost) and Michael Balderrama (Willie Lopez).  Moya Angela and Carly Hughes complete principle line up playing Clara and Louise respectively.


The production has received positive reviews during it’s previews at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre and we will have a collection of the press reviews on this site over the next few days prior to the much anticipated Tony Award nominations on the 1st May 2012 where  Ghost is expected to feature in a number of catagories.  And with productions planned for Holland later this year and Australia and Korea in 2013 one thing is for certain Ghost the Musical is going to be around for many years to come!


We would like to take this opportunity to wish all the cast, crew and the creatives of Ghost Broadway a fantastic opening night and the best of luck for a long residency on Broadway.
