The classic 1990 paranormal love story starring Demi Moore and the late Patrick Swayze has been made into a musical and opened last night at London’s Piccadilly Theatre.
The London stage version – like the movie – tells the story of Sam and Molly who are in love, but who’s lives are ripped apart when Sam is murdered.
He finds himself trapped as a ghost – but realises that his death was no accident and must warn Molly of the imminent danger she’s in.
But when he becomes a ghost, he can’t be seen or heard by the living, and so he tries to communicate with Molly through Oda Mae Brown, a psychic who didn’t even realise that her powers were real.
Ghost The Musical had its world premiere in Manchester in March.
