Ghost the Musical is the brand new West End sensation that is currently causing a buzz in London’s media for its innovative take on the Oscar Award-winning film of the same name.
"Just saw this in London. Special effects,illusions and visuals like you have never seen before! Hope it comes to So Cal. Possibly a view into where theater is headed technically. Brilliant!" - Performing Arts LIVE
"It had a technical glitch in its opening in New York. Critics skewered it because of it. Presenting organizations in LA, OC and SD shouldn't be turned off by the mishap. It belongs on a stage in So Cal. I hope that the technical aspects of the show as spectacular as they are doesn't keep the show away. Our audiences out here would love it!" - PAL
The cult romantic film of the 1990s has been adapted for the stage by a team of renowned theatre professionals and has started running at the Piccadilly Theatre to expectant audiences and fans of the original film.
The musical focuses on the relationship between Sam and Molly, a young professional couple living in New York who appear to have it all, including each other. Unfortunately, things are not as perfect as they seem and one night Sam is brutally murdered on the streets when walking back to the pair’s apartment, leaving a distraught Molly behind.
However although Sam is dead his spirit remains trapped in a twilight realm between the present and the afterlife, wandering the streets of New York and unable to communicate with Molly, who cannot see or hear him. Eventually he runs into a fraudulent psychic called Oda Mae Brown, who is more perturbed than anyone to realise that she can hear the voice of Sam convincing her to help him talk to Molly, whom he has now realised faces terrible danger that only he can save her from…
Sam and Molly in Ghost the Musical Fresh from a six-week run in the North of England at the Manchester Opera House, Ghost the Musical boasts a breathtaking array of special effects to rival other spectacular West End shows such as Wicked, with the production team having worked with illusionists and set designers to depict the spirit realm in ways that will leave audiences scratching their heads and amazed!
The set is made up of a series of huge LED screens that effortlessly recreate the bustle of a New York street or have Wall Street numbers cascading down them, and the show includes all the much-loved moments from the original film including the famous potter’s wheel scene. In addition, music is by the Grammy Award-winning Glen Ballard and ex-Eurythmic Dave Stewart, who have created a score of moving power ballads that perfectly encapsulate the couple’s anguish.
This heartfelt extravaganza is sure to strike a chord with romantics everywhere, as Sam and Molly set out to prove that there are some kinds of love that can endure through any barrier, including that between life and death.
