The ghost is leaving the theater.
The producers of Ghost The Musical announced today that the show will play its final Broadway performance on August 18. The show opened on April 23 this year and played 136 regular performances.
The musical, based on the Oscar-winning movie starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore, was first a London West End hit, and original stars Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy reprised their roles as Sam and Molly for the New York show.
Reviews for the production were mixed (EW gave it a ‘C’) and the show had been playing around 60% capacity for some time.
A U.S. national tour of the show is still slated to kick off in fall 2013, and other internationals productions are in the works.
