Sean Ebsworth Barnes

The 1990 film, starring Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze, is set to appear on an American stage in the Spring of 2012.

Let the live-action clay making begin. 

On Monday, the producers for Ghost the Musical announced that the production, currently on stage in London, will be heading to the Great White Way in April of 2012. The play will open at an as-yet-unannounced Nederland Theater, and previews will start in March. 

"Ghost is a welcome antidote in our age of cynicism.  The story continues to resonate on a very personal level with each person who experiences it, whether laughing or remembering how it feels to truly be in love,” producer Colin Ingram said in a press release. “It’s such a joy to see this timeless story as a musical that deeply affects both those who cherish it and those who are seeing it for the first time.”

The West End production, which opened July 19, is currently showing at the Piccadilly Theater in London, and stars Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy in the roles originally played by Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore in the 1990 film. 

The Broadway run will be directed by God of Carnage Tony Award winner Matthew Warchus, with set and costume designs by Rob Howell, choreography by Ashely Wallen, musical supervision and arrangements by Christopher Nightingale, lighting design by Hugh Vanstone, projection design by Jon Driscoll and illusions by Paul Kieve said the press release.

It will be produced by Colin Ingram Productions Limited and David Garfinkle with Adam Silberman; Land Line Productions, Donovan Mannato, Michael Edwards & Carole Winter in association with Paramount Pictures Corporation and ATG/Robert G. Bartner.
