GHOST the Musical is ready for its Broadway opening night on Monday, April 23. The Lunt-Fontanne Theatre is set up to house the musical and its dazzling special effects, which were designed to bring the magic of the 1990 film to life on stage in real time.

The original score is by multiple Grammy® Award winners Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard, and includes the emblematic "Unchained Melody" by The Righteous Brothers.

Trapped between two worlds as a ghost, Sam refuses to leave Molly when he learns she is in grave danger. Desperate to communicate with her, he turns to a storefront psychic, Oda Mae, who helps him protect Molly and avenge his death.
