BLOG : #TicketTuesday winner Peter Rose reviews Ghost - The Musical

Friday 10 August 2012

Peter Rose recently won our #TicketTuesday competition and headed to London's West end to see Ghost - The Musical before its close in October.

 

Ghost - The Musical is the stage adaption of the successful 1990 romatic drama film staring Patrick Swayze. The stage version is currently on at the Piccadilly Theatre, and runs until the beginning of October.

 

Ghost - The Musical was a stunning special-effects-laden show with a musical score that seemed to cover a wide range of styles from ballad to rock. We were thrilled with our seats thanks to London Theatre Direct and were ready for a night of great theatre.

The show itself was very closely linked to the film so any fan of it will not be disappointed in what they get. There was warmth, humour, raw emotion and, at times, truly moving moments, which would easily send anybody reaching for a tissue to subtly dab away their tears. The cast, as an ensemble, were very strong, with some interesting dance pieces that tipped the show into a very contemporary piece of theatre. Special mentions have to go Sharon D Clarke as Ode Mae Brown, who made an iconic character her own with warmth, guts and a voice to clear any cobwebs. Also worth a mention are Mark Evans as Sam Wheat and Siobhan Dillon as Molly, who carried the emotional weight of the story very well. The audience instantly warmed to Molly and we could not help but go through the roller-coaster of emotions with her.

The set was inspirational, one of the best I have seen in the West End, though at times could be deemed as distracting, depending on what your own preferences are. The special effects added to the magic of the show and gasps could be heard amongst the audience; without giving anything away, some movie magic was bought to the stage, don't try and work out how they did it, just let your self be swept along.

If you haven't seen Ghost the Musical yet, try and get down there before it closes on 6th October - worth a watch.

Peter Rose
