About Ghost the Musical
Ghost the Musical is based on the multi-award-winning classic 1990 film Ghost. The story is one of love conquering all, a romantic fantasy that touches both hearts and minds.
The main characters are Sam and Molly, a loving couple who live in a New York apartment. Sam, a banker, becomes involved in investigating discrepancies in accounts at work. Walking home one night Sam is killed, leaving a distraught Molly behind. The killer is Carl Bruner, Sam’s colleague and the culprit behind the discrepancies Sam was investigating. Sam is dead, but not gone: he becomes a ghost trapped between this world and the next, wandering New York City trying to adjust to his new state of being.
When he learns that Molly is in danger, Sam desperately seeks a way to warn her. He meets Oda Mae Brown, a con artist posing as a psychic medium. Although she has faked her powers in the past, she is able to hear Sam. Using Oda Mae, Sam desperately tries to save Molly’s life by warning her of the danger she is in.
Ghost The Musical stays largely true to the original script written by Bruce Joel Rubin. Music is written by Dave Stewart, of Eurythmics fame, and Glen Ballard, winner of multiple Grammy Awards. Following a world premiere and six-week warm-up run in Manchester, it opened at the Piccadilly Theatre in the West End on the 22nd June.
Ghost the Musical shows six times a week in the evening at 7.30pm, from Monday to Saturday. There are two matinee performances, at 2.30pm on Thursdays and Saturdays. Running time is 2 hours and 30 minutes, which includes a 15 minute interval.
