THE VISIT Cast & Crew Believe Lyceum Theater Has a Ghost!
The smell of cigarette smoke, sounds on the catwalk, and other strange sounds in the upper balcony during performances of "The Visit" at the Lyceum has the cast and crew thinking it could only be one thing: the ghost of Bob Fosse, according to Page Six.
Choreographer and director Bob Fosse had been close to a few of the actors of "The Visit" - Chita Rivera, Roger Rees, and Donna McKechnie. Also, composer John Kander worked with Fosse. Lastly, Fosse's famous Emmy-winning performance of "Liza With a Z" was also filmed in the Lyceum. Coincidence? We think not.
Rumor has it, according to Rees that, "Bob Fosse told me he loved going to the back of the balcony to look at the stage from the top of the theater." and backstage pros mutter: "This is so Fosse." Remember when we said that strange sounds were also coming from the upper balcony?
Well, if there has to be a ghost at Lyceum, the oldest continuous Broadway house, at least it is the ghost of an old friend of the cast and crew.
