Ghost The Musical - Piccadilly Theatre 2011
GHOST 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, in 1991, won an Oscar® for Best Original Screenplay. GHOST features stunning new music and lyrics by music legends Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard (writer of Michael Jackson’s Man In The Mirror) whose combined album sales top 250 million: the score also features the unforgettable Unchained Melody. Directed by the multi-award-winning Matthew Warchus, designed by Rob Howell with lighting by Hugh Vanstone: a team whose recent credits include God of Carnage, Deathtrap, La Bete and range from work in opera, film and with all of our major theatre companies, including the recent highly-acclaimed Matilda for the RSC. Stage effects are by Magic Circle member, Paul Kieve, illusionist for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and choreography is by Ashley Wallen, who has worked with Kylie Minogue, Black Eyed Peas and X Factor. GHOST is a magical night out that will send spirits soaring.
