A Little Bit of Broadway

Ghost

Sunday, August 14, 2011 -- 4:30 - 6pm

The world of musical theater continues to borrow from the silver screen with today’s offering – Ghost, the Musical. Based on the 1990 movie, it’s the story of the love between Sam and Molly that doesn’t die just because Sam happens to be killed. Sam becomes a ghost, determined to protect Molly from the man who killed him. He does this with the help of a medium Oda Mae Brown, who is less of a fake than she thought she was.

Book and lyrics are by Bruce Joel Rubin, who wrote the original screenplay, and music is by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and Glen Ballard, a songwriter and producer who produced such albums as Michael Jackson’s Thriller and wrote the Grammy winning Believe (The Polar Express).

There is one song from the movie – it would impossible to imagine this show without Unchained Melody.

It’s currently playing on the West End, but I hope that it comes soon to the States.

You can see numbers from the show on Youtube.
