Major new West End show Ghost The Musical enjoyed a glittering premiere at the Piccadilly Theatre last night.
A host of well-known stage and screen stars came together to celebrate the big-budget new movie-to-stage musical including Michael Ball, Arlene Phillips, Denise Van Outen, JLS and Frank Skinner.
Van Outen said that she “loved” the show, with Marvin from JLS congratulating star Richard Fleeshman, saying: “The boys and I were truly blown away last night.. well done mate”.
Ghost The Musical stars Richard Fleeshman(Legally Blonde, Coronation Street) as Sam, originally played on screen by the late Patrick Swayze, and hot Broadway starlet Caissie Levy (Hair, Wicked) as Molly, originally played by Demi Moore. Joining Fleeshman and Levy is West End star Sharon D Clarke as Oda Mae Brown, played in the movie by Whoopi Goldberg, and Andrew Langtree as Carl.
Ghost The Musical is directed by Matthew Warchus (Deathtrap, La Bete), with music and lyrics by legendary pop and rock writers Dave Stewart (Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard (writer of Michael Jackson’s Man in the Mirror). The show also features the classic song from the movie, Unchained Melody.
