NEWSFLASH: GHOST for Broadway?

GHOST

So after decidedly mixed reviews in London and a complete slate from Ben Brantley in The New York Times, who says that Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard’s score is the ‘aural equivalent of a Stairmaster’, the producers of Ghost are looking to bring the show to New York, which might be a smart move – says Michael Riedel – for a show like this in what has proved to be a weak season for new musicals thus far.

I have no concrete feelings about the show (which features a book by Bruce Joel Rubin, the screenwriter of the film upon which it is based) either way at this point, but the things I’ve read about the show make it seem as though it still needs a fair amount of work to be as good as it is popular. At least, I hope the tap-dancing ghosts are gone by the time the show transfers to the Great White Way…
