Will Laura Michelle Kelly Go from Poppins to Ghost?

PlayBlog   Will Laura Michelle Kelly Go from Poppins to Ghost?
Laura Michelle Kelly may go from the magical world of her current Broadway gig, Mary Poppins, into a land of otherworldly romance in the upcoming West End musical Ghost.

London’s Daily Mail reports that Kelly is likely to star in the musical version of the hit 1990 film, which is set to open in 2011. Kelly would play the Demi Moore role of a clay-making artist whose lover dies and must then save her life from the great beyond.

Kelly’s participation appears likely to hang on which West End theatre will be signed for the show. Details on that are apparently forthcoming in the next few weeks, but producers plan to try out the show in Manchester in spring 2011, with a West End bow in early summer.

The musical Ghost will feature book and lyrics by the film’s screenwriter, Bruce Joel Rubin, and music and lyrics by Dave Stewart (of Eurhythmics) and Glen Ballard. Tony Award winner Matthew Warchus is set to direct.
