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.

Quotes & Highlights
“William Burden sings with unfailing sweetness…and has the looks of a young romantic.” —The Financial Times
Music By: Gaetano Donizetti
Conducted By: John DeMain
Donizetti’s light-hearted confection is all about – what else? – romance, love potions, the twists and turns of courtship, and happy endings. Our production, a re-imagination by Sir Jonathan Miller (Theater & Opera Director, Physician, Author), is set in a west Texas diner in the 1950s! And the cast includes sensational tenor William Burden and Russian soprano Olga Makarina. Elixir is a lively romp – the tale of a country bumpkin, Nemorino, who can’t quite catch the eye of the woman he adores. He turns to a traveling salesman who’s pushing the title’s love potion – and hilarity ensues!
