The new romantic musical Ghost is making sure there isn’t a dry eye in the house of the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy star as lovers Sam and Molly, who are torn apart when Sam is murdered as they walk home one night. When the ghostly Sam finds out Molly is in danger, he enlists the help of an eccentric psychic (Da’Vine Joy Randolph) to communicate with her. The show features high-tech stage illusions (Sam has to walk through doors, after all) and a pop-rock score by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard, and Broadway.com resident artist Justin ‘Squigs’ Robertson took in this epic musical to capture the excitement. He penned a portrait of Fleeshman and Levy surrounded by Randolph, Bryce Pinkham and ghosts played by Tyler McGee and Lance Roberts. Feast your eyes on this out-of-this-world artwork, then make sure to see Ghost in the flesh.
