Based on the award-winning movie that captured the hearts and imagination of a generation back in the 1990’s, Ghost the Musical at the Piccadilly Theatre is a rollercoaster ride of romance, comedy, drama and excitement
In Ghost the Musical, young lovers Sam and Molly are mugged on the way back to their apartment, leaving Sam murdered on a dark street. Sam is trapped as a ghost between this world and the next and unable to leave Molly who he learns is in grave danger. With the help of a phony storefront psychic, Oda Mae Brown, Sam tries to communicate with Molly in the hope of saving and protecting her.
The amazing special effects and dazzling staging in Ghost the Musical are by the multi award-winning Paul Kieve (Inner Magic Circle member) and direction is by Tony Award-winner Matthew Warchus. 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.
The current Ghost the Musical cast includes Mark Evans as Sam, 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 Sharon D Clarke (EastEnders and Holby City) in the Whoopi Goldberg role as phoney psychic, Oda Mae Brown.
