Ghost the Musical on Broadway
I was really excited to see Ghost on Broadway. I have always been a fan of Ghost the movie. Plus, a friend (who also happens to be male) said it was good, so I figured it must be really good then. Unfortunately, I am now doubting my friend's taste.
I'm really bummed about it because Ghost the musical had so much potential. Everyone loved the movie, so if you're sticking withthe same storyline, how could you mess it up? But they did. In their attempt to make it more modern and stand out from other musicals, I think they took their eye off the ball and was too focused on the playing field so to speak.
“From the moment the opening credits are projected onto the curtain, it's clear that this musical adaptation of the beloved feature film makes great use of high-tech, cinematic elements. These stage illusions—ghost Sam walks through doors, spirits and bodies instantly separate into two beings—make this show a seriously supernatural experience. Projection is used for everything from basic backdrops and scene-setting to back up for a music video…” (Ghost).

The digital projections were pretty
cool, I give them that, but even so, some of it was too corny. It seemed that the show relied more on the use of high-tech than it did on good acting and dancing. The
music, for one, was bland and forgettable. With most shows I go to there is at least one memorable song/scene that is catchy and sticks out in my mind. I quickly forgot about all of the Ghost songs shorty after leaving the theater. Secondly, the choreography was just LAME. I think you'd call it contemporary dance, but considering there was a lot of dancing throughout the show, they should have made it more more exciting. Everything about it was just mediocre.
There were a few times throughout the show I turned to look at my boyfriend to gauge his reaction to the corniness. Maybe I had too high of expectations prior to seeing the show, but I was definitely disappointed. The best part about Ghost is Richard Fleeshman, who plays Sam and is a complete babe, but even with the eye candy, I still can't say I recommend seeing Ghost.
