Review – Ghost The Musical – London

Today’s guest post is by Ewa Lewucha 
 The West End is an amazing place for an adventurous Friday night. If you’re bored with the cinema, London’s West End has many fabulous theatre shows to watch at the moment.

Piccadilly Theatre formerly known to be home to plays directed by Sir Peter Hall, today delights us with a stage adaptation of Jerry Zucker’s movie Ghost.

Sam and Molly are two young lovers, who have just moved in together. One evening while they are coming back from dinner Sam gets attacked and murdered. Sam finds himself stuck between two worlds and the only person who can hear him is Oda Mae Brown, a spiritual medium. Through her he is able to communicate with Molly as he discovers the truth about his own death.

Ghost The Musical, with music and lyrics written by Bruce Joel Rubin, Dave Steward, Glen Ballard and directed by Matthew Warchus, is a story about love and supernatural powers. Literally.

The UK production features Caissie Levy and Richard Fleeshman, whose performance is supported  by Paul Kieve, the greatest ghost wrangler ever. The stage is filled with special effects, projections and illusions that make the audience gasp. Even though it will be always compared with the film it’s an adaptation done well and the actors performance is superb. Ghost’s mix of magic and love brought tears to my eyes.

Ghost The Musical is a show that does what its supposed to do – entertain. The show definitely deserved the standing ovation it received from the audience when the curtains went down.
