Based on the hit 90’s film, the classic love story is being brought to the stage once again by Bill Kenwright in a new production directed by Bob Tomson.
Walking back to their apartment late one night a tragic encounter sees Sam murdered and his beloved girlfriend Molly alone, in despair and utterly lost. But with the help of a phony storefront psychic, Sam, trapped between this world and the next, tries to communicate with Molly in the hope of saving her from grave danger.
Featuring a book and lyrics by Bruce Joel Rubin as well as music and lyrics by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard, Ghost the Musical features songs such as ‘With You’ , ‘Here Right Now’ and the classic ‘Unchained Melody’.
Talking about the production Bill Kenwright said; “Ghost is a story full of hope, and is one of those films which never leaves you. The book by Bruce Joel Rubin and score by Dave Stewart and Glenn Ballad come together wonderfully in one of my favourite new musicals in years.”
The original film starred Patrick Swayze, Whoopi Goldberg and Demi Moore, winning two Oscars for Bruce Joel Rubin’s script for Best Original Screenplay and Whoopi Goldberg won the Oscar for Best Actress in a Supporting Role.
