Richard Fleeshman

Richard Fleeshman continues to forge his West End career in Ghost The Musical

RICHARD FLEESHMAN in Ghost The MusicalHe may be best know for his four year stint in Coronation Street playing Craig Harris, but there’s much more to Fleeshman that soap.

An accomplished singer and musician, he released his album Neon in 2007 followed by singles Coming Down, Hold Me Close, Back Here and Can You Hear Me? Plus he won not one but two ITV talent shows – Stars in Their Eyes Celebrity Special and Soapstar Superstar. Oh, and he accompanied someone called Mr Elton John on his Summer Stadium and Red Piano tours.

TV roles have included All The Small Things and recently Moving On: Rules of the Game for the BBC. But it’s his stage work that is currently attracting the buzz.

He wowed audiences at the Savoy Theatre this year with his performance as posh cad Warner Huntington III opposite Sheridan Smith in Legally Blonde The Musical.

And now, his biggest challenge yet: following Patrick Swayze in a ghostly role that will require convincing acting and some stunning singing, starring alongside another powerhouse musicals star – this time up-and-coming Broadway baby Caissie Levy.

Ghost the Musical, which starts off at the Opera House in Manchester before opening at the Piccadilly Theatre in London in June, will be directed by Matthew Warchus (Deathtrap, La Bete), with music and lyrics by legendary pop and rock writers Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard (writer of Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror). The show will also feature the classic song Unchained Melody. Ghost The Musical will be designed by Rob Howell, with illusions and stage effects by Paul Kieve (Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) and a script by the original Oscar-winning screenplay writer Bruce Joel Rubin.

    1. Richard’s last performance in West End was at 12/01/2012:( Off to Broadway now! Such a shame him and Caissie are gone! The show won’t be the same now.

  1. Saw Ghost the Musical last night – OMG what an AMAZING show. The set and special effects were exceptional and the cast were fantastic. Richard Fleeshman would make any female melt in her seat and it was great to see Sharon D Clarke in yet another superb role. So to any theatre fans do not hesitate to go and see this truly brilliant show you won’t b disappointed.

  2. Saw Ghost 1/10/2011. I would advise anyone who enjoys musicals to see Ghost it was spectacular from start to finish with special effects which blew me away! Caissie Levy and Richard Fleeshman did an excellent job recreating these iconic roles and their voices were stunning. The music was well written with simple lyrics and classic melodies. It is by far one of the best musicals I have seen, it made me laugh and brought me to tears…I cant wait to go back for a second time.

  3. So disappointed not to see Richard Fleeshman yesterday in the matinee performance – enjoyed the show but spent a lot of money to see him!!!

  4. saw ghost 15 08 2011 was a 50th birthday present a night to remember cried at film cried at the show well worth seeing …..

  5. I am sitting at Charing Cross train station after going to see Ghost with my 16 year old Daughter & her friend. It really was the most wonderful amazing show we have ever seen! Richard Fleeshman was truly amazing and was very believable in the role of Sam Wheat. His voice was spectacular and we cannot wait to see it again!

    1. I saw Richard in Ghost on 27th June at Piccadilly theatre and i absolutely loved him. I thought he was spectacular in the role of Sam. He has a whole great package: singing,acting and fantasticlly toned body!
      I highly recommend seeing the show and i just cannot wait to see him again!

  6. I didn’t like him. I thought he was too young, too smug and arrogant with a limited voice.

  7. I saw Richard in Manchester although there will never be another Patrick, he made Ghost the musical his own! (Would have liked his hair a little longer)
    Everyone who loves musicals should try and see this musical. Have just heard they are bringing out a single really look forward to getting this,

  8. I have seen Richard in Ghost in Manchester. The role is now his….just as Patrick Swayze claimed it in the movie.
    I thought Richard would be good…but he is spectacular in the role.
    Please try and see is up there with the best I have ever seen. No, I will go further, it is the best I have ever seen….and I have seen many.
