'Ghost': Richard & Caissie Become Sam & Molly

Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy star in 'Ghost the Musical'

This is the third of four posts about the upcoming production of 'Ghost the Musical' in London's West End.

Having the opportunity to see Richard Fleeshman in "Legally Blonde" in London in 2010 and Caissie Levy in the 2009 revival of "Hair" on Broadway in supporting roles, it will be interesting to see how they fare as leads in such a high profile show as 'Ghost the Musical' based on the 1990 feature film.

The audiences and critics are waiting until the show premieres this June at the Piccadilly Theatre in London. More info at ghostthemusical.com.

For now here are their program biographies:
