We saw Ghost the Musical yesterday and it is the perfect for a relaxing summer weekend with your girls or if you are planning a romantic London theatre break. (Come on guys: brownie points galore!) Five fast facts:
Ghost the musical is an amazing live-experience: theatrical trickery show you outer-body experiences in front of your eyes.
Richard Fleeshman as Sam Wheat might not be Patrick Swayze but his version of Unchained Melody had us all think that We. Still. Would.
Slick group choreography complimented the clever set design, from banking execs, to glamorous entourage: this ensemble got it down!
Sharon D Clarke’s Oda Mae Brown could give Whoopi a run for her Oscar. Energetic, fun and sassy – she is the perfect comic-relief with a belter of a voice to top.
The musical’s triumphant equivalent of that pottery-scene (it’s still there, don’t worry!). Goosebumps when Sam and Molly dance, one last time.
