Ghost The Musical is currently previewing at the Piccadilly Theatre and Premieres on the 19th of July, Head of Theatre David Thomas recently caught the show and in a guest post gives us his thoughts:
It played the heart-strings like a virtuoso harpist, and then let loose the emotion in controlled explosions of torrents of laughter. But the hands of the audience said it better than I could ever hope to: wriggling, gripping, lip-twiddling, nape-scraping, knee-hugging…
– Aston Martin don’t make musicals, but if they did it would probably look like Ghost The Musical. There are a still a few ‘mechanical’ issues that need a little oiling, but when it growls and purrs you know what kind of animal it is.
And is that any surprise when you look at the songwriting partnership that has brought Ghost The Musical to the stage:
Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics
– one of the most successful and innovative song-writers of the past half-century
Music Industry Legend Glen Ballard
– he co-wrote and produced Alanis Morisette’s Jagged Little Pill as well as working on a couple of Michael Jackson album’s you may have heard of… Bad and Thriller (Glen also co-wrote a little Jackson number called Man In The Mirror)
– Yes, Ghost The Musical is based on the half-billion-dollar grossing movie starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg,
– No, you don’t need to see Ghost The Movie to enjoy Ghost The Musical,
…but you DO have to see Ghost The Musical.
