GHOST is the hit musical based on the award-winning movie that captured the hearts and imaginations of a generation back in the 90s. It landed on the West End stage last year – and now celebrates its first birthday having already played to over 500,000 people.
A timeless fantasy about the power of love, GHOST is a rollercoaster ride of romance, comedy, drama and excitement. 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. Mark Evans plays Sam Wheat, the role that Patrick Swayze made famous, a ghost trapped between this world and the next trying to communicate with his girlfriend Molly. Adapted for the stage by Bruce Joel Rubin from his own Oscar-winning screenplay, Siobhan Dillon (finalist in the BBC’s How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria?) stars as Molly with the fabulous Sharon D Clarke (EastEnders and Holby City) in the Whoopi Goldberg role as phoney psychic, Oda Mae Brown.
The score is by rock legends and Grammy award winners, Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard (Michael Jackson and Alanis Morrisette) and features the unforgettable Unchained Melody, forever linked with that pottery-making scene in the film.
GHOST recently celebrated it’s first birthday in London, is now playing on Broadway and opens in Holland, Korea and Australia over the next 12 months.
