Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore reached across death's divide with the strength of their love -- and the help of a storefront psychic -- in the Oscar-winning film Ghost. Now Ghost the Musical, adapted for the Broadway stage by the Academy Award-winning writer of the film, relives all the memorable magic of that tragic, supernatural romance. This production of the enduring love story also boasts the addition of an original pop score written by multiple Grammy winners Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and Glen Ballard, co-writer of Alanis Morissette's Jagged Little Pill.
