I had the pleasure of attending the Gala Opening Night of GHOST THE MUSICAL, all thanks to Base Entertainment Asia! This supernatural tale about the power of love takes place in Singapore at the MasterCard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands on the 4th of November 2015, for a limited season.
The setting begins with Sam and Molly just moving in to their fabulous apartment in Brooklyn. One day, they are mugged after a romantic dinner while walking back to their apartment, which leaves Sam murdered on a dark street. Sam becomes a ghost and remains invisible yet earthbound. With a help of a psychic, Sam tries to communicate with Molly to protect her and save her from danger.
GHOST THE MUSICAL hosts special tricks with the use of state of the art videos and projections. It features special effects and illusions that will leave the audience astonished and questioning themselves if what they just saw was real! Examples range from Sam being able to walk through the solid door, spirits ascending to heaven and various other special effects!
GHOST THE MUSICAL is based on the Oscar Winning 1990 film - GHOST, and the show is about love that death separates Sam and Molly. The movie, GHOST was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Film in 1990, and it became a blockbuster hit and an instant classic, winning numerous awards worldwide. The film starred Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore, Tony Goldwyn and Whoopi Goldberg.
GHOST THE MUSICAL engages in deep emotions as well as incredible dance moves, while the music was breathtaking beautiful too. I love the iconic music score, especially 'Unchained Melody' by the Righteous Brothers. Although GHOST THE MUSICAL may not be on par with, say, Phantom of the Opera or Les Miserables, it is a highly entertaining one to catch!
