Andrew Langtree playing Carl in Ghost the Musical

Andrew Langtree is playing Carl Bruner in the new musical Ghost which starts previews at the Piccadilly Theatre next June after transferring from Manchester Opera House.

Andrew’s West End theatre credits include Blood Brothers, Fame and Sky in Mamma Mia!  He has appeared in The Glass Menagerie, London Assurance and Six Degrees of Separation at Manchester's Royal Exchange.

His TV credits include Doctors, Heartbeat, Cutting It and Coronation Street and he has most recently been seen playing Justin Gallagher in Emmerdale.  On film he appeared in the Cole Porter biopic De Lovely. 

Carl Bruner is the colleague who Sam (Patrick Swayze in the film, Richard Fleeshman in the musical) confides in when he discovers discrepancies in some of the accounts. Soon afterwards Sam is killed, but remains on Earth as a ghost and discovers that Carl was behind a money laundering scheme at the bank and that the mugging was an attempt by Carl to acquire Sam's security codes.

Other casting to date is Caissie Levy playing Molly (originally played by Demi Moore in the film) and Sharon D Clarke playing medium Oda Mae Brown (as played by Whoopi Goldberg).
