Broadway In Chicago is pleased to announce that individual tickets for GHOST THE MUSICAL,
based on the film by Bruce Joel Rubin and Paramount Pictures, go

The supernatural power of love is taking North America by storm as the
new Broadway and West End musical GHOST THE MUSICAL, adapted from the Academy Award-winning film, will play Chicago’s Oriental Theatre (24 West Randolph) for a limited two-week engagement from Jan. 7 – 19, 2014.
GHOST THE MUSICAL is directed by Tony Award-winner Matthew Warchus (Matilda, God of Carnage, The Norman Conquests, Boeing-Boeing) and choreographed by Ashley Wallen (“The X Factor”, Kylie Minogue, Seal, Madonna's film WE). The musical features book and lyrics by Bruce Joel Rubin (Ghost, Jacob’s Ladder, The Time Traveler’s Wife)
who has adapted his Academy Award-winning original screenplay for the
stage, and original music and lyrics by a team of Grammy Award-winners,
including Dave Stewart (half of the multi-Grammy Award-winning Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard (Michael Jackson's Man In The Mirror, Alanis Morissette’s Jagged Little Pill). The
score also includes the iconic song “Unchained Melody,” written by Hy
Zaret and Alex North (Courtesy of Frank Music Corp. ASCAP) and famously
performed in the film by The Righteous Brothers.
Set in modern day New York City, GHOST THE MUSICAL
is a timeless fantasy about the power of love. Walking back to their
apartment one night after a romantic dinner, Sam and Molly are mugged,
leaving Sam dead on a dark street. Sam is trapped as a ghost between
this world and the next and unable to leave Molly, who he learns is in
grave danger. With the help of a phony storefront psychic, Sam tries to
communicate with Molly in the hopes of saving and protecting her.
GHOST THE MUSICAL has been enjoyed by over 1
million people worldwide and has been nominated for numerous awards
including five Olivier Awards and three Tony Awards. It is also
currently in Hungary and touring the UK and productions in Italy and
Korea open later this year. The Associated Press calls GHOST THE MUSICAL “Eye-poppingly brilliant” while Variety assures the audience will experience “A limitless array of dazzling effects.” Newsday promises that GHOST THE MUSICAL is “Unlike anything seen on stage before” and the Daily Telegraph says GHOST THE MUSICAL “Will keep you gasping!”
