West End's GHOST to Close October 6
As BroadwayWorld previously reported, Ghost The Musical will be closing at the Piccadilly Theatre to make way for Viva Forever, the Spice Girls musical. Now according to Whatsonstage, the show will take its final bow on October 6.
With a London cast led by Siobhan Dillon and Mark Evans, Matthew Warchus’ stage musical version of the Academy Award® winning film Ghost originally opened at the Piccadilly Theatre in 2011. Sharon D. Clarke (Oda Mae) and Andrew Langtree (Carl) continue in the roles they originated on stage when the production premiered in Manchester on 28 March 2011.
The New York production of Ghost The Musical is currently playing at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre on Broadway. Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy lead the company as Sam and Molly, reprising the roles they created for the production’s world premiere here in the UK.
A timeless story about the power of love, Sam is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next trying to communicate with his girlfriend Molly through a phoney psychic in the hope of saving her from his murderer. Ghost, based on the Oscar® winning Paramount Pictures film, features new music and lyrics as well as the classic Unchained Melody.
