‘Ghost’ books leads

West End duo to reprise roles on Broadway

Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy, the two leads of the West End tuner incarnation of “Ghost,” will reprise their roles in the Broadway version of the show this spring.

Fleeshman and Levy will play the murdered Sam and his still-living paramour Molly in the tuner by Dave Stewart (of the Eurythmics), Glen Ballard and original screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin. Not crossing the pond, however, is Sharon D. Clarke, the actress who won plaudits in the London press for her turn as the sassy medium played in the film by Whoopi Goldberg.

In Gotham the role will be played by Da’Vine Joy Randolph, a recent Yale School of Drama grad. Bryce Pinkham (“Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson”) is onboard as Sam’s friend Carl.

In London, Mark Evans and Siobhan Dillon are set to take over the lead roles when Fleeshman and Levy exit.

Matthew Warchus, who directed the London staging, will also helm the Broadway outing in a production that incorporates stage illusions and other ghostly effects. Rialto incarnation is produced by Colin Ingram Prods. Ltd. and Hello Entertainment/David Garfinkle, Adam Silberman, Donovan Mannato, Michael Edwards and Carole Winter in association with Paramount Pictures.

“Ghost” is set to begin previews March 15 ahead of an April 23 opening at the Lunt-Fontanne Theater.
