I wonder if there are ghosts at the Gaiety Theater

I mean aside from this one:

Zac Efron with a ghost

Anyway, what inspired my posting of that really old photoshop is this, from USA Weekend Magazine's Holiday Movie Preview:

Me and Orson Welles (Nov. 25) In this Zac Efron film about a young man who lucks into a small part in Orson Welles' production of Julius Caesar on Broadway in the 1930s, the role of the fabled Mercury Theatre was won by a venerable playhouse located on, of all places, the Isle of Man, in the Irish Sea. "Welles used a lot of effects," says director Richard Linklater, "including having actors appear onstage through trapdoors. This theater had the appropriate kind of space under the stage, but everybody who went down there noticed this funky smell. Later, we learned there was a long-standing tradition, dating back more than a century, for actors to instruct that their ashes be deposited under the stage of this theater - 100 or so had done so. When we heard that, our initial reaction was [to be creeped out], but in no time, we realized that we were making a movie about actors, and here we were among actors who chose this theater as their resting place. It seemed kind of cool."
