Ghost the Musical now playing at the Majestic Theatre until Sunday

See also

Last night was the opening night of Ghost the Musical at the Majestic Theatre and it played to a packed house made up of mostly older adults. Fans of the original Ghost movie showed up to see the stage adaptation of a young couple’s love story cut short by an untimely death.

The show began with some impressive aerial video projections of the city that ended in the Brooklyn loft apartment that Sam and Molly are moving into. The musical numbers started impressively with Sam and Molly singing “Here Right Now” but it was disappointing to hear Sam’s acoustic version of “Unchained Melody” which is the show’s signature song. Oda Mae provided the much needed comic relief in an otherwise somber story especially her performance on “I’m Outta Here” when she gets the check from the bank.

Overall the quality of the performances was first class and the cast was talented and worked well together. The stage production pretty much sticks to the movie’s storyline but it feels like there’s another story about the corporate jungle competing for equal time. The visual effects were superb especially the scenes on the subway and the final scene when Sam finally lets go and floats away.

Ghost the Musical is playing at the Majestic Empire through Sunday January 26. Tickets prices range from $26 to $81 and are available at the Majestic box office and at all Ticketmaster outlets.
