When does Richard finish this show?
Richard’s last performance in West End was at 12/01/2012:( Off to Broadway now! Such a shame him and Caissie are gone! The show won’t be the same now.
Absolutely brill, roring at the end & not the only 1, great vocals, go see it.
Saw Ghost the Musical last night – OMG what an AMAZING show. The set and special effects were exceptional and the cast were fantastic. Richard Fleeshman would make any female melt in her seat and it was great to see Sharon D Clarke in yet another superb role. So to any theatre fans do not hesitate to go and see this truly brilliant show you won’t b disappointed.
Saw Ghost 1/10/2011. I would advise anyone who enjoys musicals to see Ghost it was spectacular from start to finish with special effects which blew me away! Caissie Levy and Richard Fleeshman did an excellent job recreating these iconic roles and their voices were stunning. The music was well written with simple lyrics and classic melodies. It is by far one of the best musicals I have seen, it made me laugh and brought me to tears…I cant wait to go back for a second time.
Do u know how long he is in it for?
Currently no end date has been announced for Richard appearing in Ghost
he will be in t till the 12 of january
So disappointed not to see Richard Fleeshman yesterday in the matinee performance – enjoyed the show but spent a lot of money to see him!!!
saw ghost 15 08 2011 was a 50th birthday present a night to remember cried at film cried at the show well worth seeing …..
I am sitting at Charing Cross train station after going to see Ghost with my 16 year old Daughter & her friend. It really was the most wonderful amazing show we have ever seen! Richard Fleeshman was truly amazing and was very believable in the role of Sam Wheat. His voice was spectacular and we cannot wait to see it again!
I saw Richard in Ghost on 27th June at Piccadilly theatre and i absolutely loved him. I thought he was spectacular in the role of Sam. He has a whole great package: singing,acting and fantasticlly toned body!
I highly recommend seeing the show and i just cannot wait to see him again!
You know Dori, you are so right. Richard absolutely blew me away too.
I didn’t like him. I thought he was too young, too smug and arrogant with a limited voice.
I saw Richard in Manchester although there will never be another Patrick, he made Ghost the musical his own! (Would have liked his hair a little longer)
Everyone who loves musicals should try and see this musical. Have just heard they are bringing out a single really look forward to getting this,
I have seen Richard in Ghost in Manchester. The role is now his….just as Patrick Swayze claimed it in the movie.
I thought Richard would be good…but he is spectacular in the role.
Please try and see it..it is up there with the best I have ever seen. No, I will go further, it is the best I have ever seen….and I have seen many.
