GHOST The Musical is a musical with book and lyrics by Bruce Joel Rubin and music and lyrics by Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard.
Based on the hit 1990 romantic fantasy thriller film of the same name, the musical had its world premiere at the Manchester Opera House in Manchester in March 2011.
The plot centres on lovers Sam and Molly, who are attacked as they are returning to their apartment. When Sam dies he becomes caught between the real world and the next. Molly is in danger and Sam cannot leave her. A medium, Oda Mae Brown, helps Sam to get in touch with Molly to warn her.
GHOST The Musical has had 30 professional productions in 22 countries in 14 languages.
It was nominated for 5 Laurence Olivier Awards including Best Musical and 3 Tony Awards. It won Drama Desk Awards for Outstanding Set Design and Outer Critics Award for Best Lighting.
Time Out called it "A new West End hit has landed".
The Daily Telegraph said "highly entertaining one that looks set to keep audiences laughing, gasping and sniffing back tears for a long time to come."
'Ghost the Musical' is a gleaming piece of stagecraft whose smoke, mirrors, full-throttle heartache and beguiling special effects put it light years ahead of many of its ageing competitors.
Magical. High entertaining one that looks set to keep audiences laughing, gasping,and sniffing back tears for a long time to come.
Ghost – The Musical, however, is even more spectacular than the original film, something I never thought I would say.
In a strange way, this show seems to bring the feel of the story up to date. The choreography and the stage effects for creating the ghosts is very cleverly done. In some respects, it is even better to see this on stage than on screen.
Dazzlingly display of undying love. Resistance is futile.
An unearthly hit
Spectacular visual dynamism
Simply Out of this world
