The musical "Ghost," opens Tuesday at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts for a two-week run. It is a musical version of the blockbuster film of the same name.

The touring company show employs special effects to depict on stage the timeless fantasy of the power of love that made the 1990 movie an Academy Award-winning classic. The plot tells the story of a couple, Sam and Molly, who are mugged one night, leaving Sam dead. He is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next. Knowing Molly is in danger, he tries desperately to communicate with her with the help of a phony storefront psychic, a role that won Whoppi Goldberg an Oscar in the movie.

The musical features book and lyrics by Bruce Joel Rubin, who adapted his Academy Award-winning original screenplay for the stage, as well as original music and lyrics by a team of Grammy Award-winners, including Dave Stewart, of the multi-Grammy Award-winning Eurythmics and Glen Ballard, best known for co-writing and producing Alanis Morissette's "Jagged Little Pill" and as the co-writer of Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror."

The show includes special effects created by Paul Kieve, who created the illusions for "Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban."

"Ghost the Musical" runs Tuesday, April 29 through Sunday, May 11.
