Latest 7 went to see the West End smash hit musical Ghost and has three pairs of top price tickets to be won
If you loved the film Ghost then you will love the West End musical Ghost too. Too many films translated to the stage fail to deliver, but this delivers on every level.
Ghost was a massive hit but an odd one: it delivered chic flick, psychic horror and thriller in one very neatly tied up bundle. Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopee Goldberg confirmed their status as Hollywood gold with this film, so why turn it into a musical?
Well, like the very best ghost stories, seeing is believing, and believe us, you will find it hard to believe the magic that this incredible production has brought to the live stage.
We always try to enter the theatre with an open mind, but Ghost came with such a legendary track record on film that it was hard. After all, how on earth could they achieve the visual effects live on stage that are so easy in cinema? Well trust us, they do, and live they have far more impact than any movie with all the computing wizardry they have to hand. To describe the effects as spectacular hardly does them justice; they are quite simply unbelievable.
The set alone is worth the price of the ticket with acres of LED screens, hundreds of lights, and the best computer generated visuals we have ever seen. The story is a timeless fantasy about the power of love. Sam is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next, trying to communicate with his girlfriend Molly through
a phoney psychic in the hope of saving her from his murderer.
A roller-coaster ride of romance, drama and excitement, Ghost has been adapted for the stage by Bruce Joel Rubin who won an Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay. The new score and lyrics are by music legends Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard, whose combined album sales top 250 million, and of course the score also features the unforgettable ‘Unchained Melody’.
With brilliant staging, sensational choreography and a stunningly good cast that includes Richard Fleeshman this is a not to be missed event.
