Ghost The Musical: A Timeless Fantasy About The Power Of Love

February 19, 2014 | Daniella & Letisha Jones-Ellis

If you’re a fan of musicals then Ghost could well be the next stage performance for you to witness.

‘Based on the phenomenal Oscar-winning movie that captured the hearts and imaginations of a generation back in the 90’s, 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 girlfriend Molly through a phoney psychic in the hope of saving her from his murderer.

‘Adapted for the stage by Bruce Joel Rubin from his own Oscar-winning screenplay for the film, the amazing special effects and dazzling staging are by the multi award-winning Paul Kieve (Inner Magic Circle member) and Tony Award-winner Matthew Warchus.

With a score by rock legends and Grammy award winners, Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard (Michael Jackson and Alanis Morrisette) and featuring the unforgettable ‘Unchained Melody’, Ghost is a rollercoaster ride of romance and comedy with dazzling state-of-the-art staging.’

Reviews so far have described it as ‘jaw-droppingly amazing’ and ‘a dazzling display of undying love’. So if the movie adaptation is in your top five list of movies, the musical is the next to see. Get your tickets now; opening night in Oxford is February 25th!
