Do a quick straw poll to find the most heartbreaking, most romantic film of all time, and the chances are Ghost will be mentioned. The supernatural romance tugged a million heartstrings, tempted women everywhere to cut their hair a la the achingly gorgeous Demi Moore, and reinforced the fact that Patrick Swayze was the heart-throb of his generation. It also spawned a rather fantastic musical directed by the Tony award winning Matthew Warchus, with music and lyrics by Dave Stewart of the Eurythmics and Glen Ballard.
This December, just in time for Christmas, Ghost The Musical will arrive in Birmingham, at the New Alexandra Theatre, promising to be a wonderful festive treat. The musical has already been nominated for five Olivier awards and 3 Tony awards and has so far been seen by an impressive half a million people, and comes to Birmingham with a knockout cast of West End performers including Kiesha Atwell and Wendy Mae Brown playing the unforgetable Oda Mae. We are also promised some spectacular special effects which have got me very keen to see this.
Ghost the Musical arrives at the New Alexandra Theatre on Tuesday 1th December and plays until Sunday 5th January 2014. You can find out more about the showtimes and ticket information by clicking here.
