FIX-SPACING IS WRONG FOR ROSS AND LENNOX

“Revealing any more of the story of the delightful and chilling production would not only be unfair to you, but would very likely anger at least one very temperamental theater ghost… the perfect recipe for a goosebump-filled evening.”   – ScreamQueenz

“fresh, modernized take as play-within-a-play of two Broadway-bound theatre stars with chilling yet cheeky homages to kabuki and Shakespeare’s Macbeth… delivering a genuine cross-cultural celebration of the revenge genre… hooked us into this pleasantly unpredictable theatrical experience from start to finish”. – theasy.com


“If you are looking to get spooked-out theater style, then this is for you… loads of suspense and unexpected things that happen that will startle and rattle you and keep you on edge.”    – The Examiner

Set in contemporary New York, Ghost Light: The Haunting tells the tale of Japanese-American actress Keiko, Oiwa’s direct descendant, is brutally betrayed by her ambitious actor husband Bryan. Eerily re-enacting Oiwa’s tale, Keiko’s ghost haunts Bryan as he attempts to navigate a high-profile Broadway production of Macbeth. His life begins to unravel in ways that parallel the witchery and horror of Shakespeare’s Scottish king as Keiko’s ghost seeks revenge.

Replete with glamour, betrayal, blood and irony, the Off-Broadway production of Ghost Light: The Haunting was New York Metro’s featured Halloween “must see” for 2015.
