Classic Film Headed To Australian Stage
From musical stage to theatre stage
Dave Stewart, made famous as a member of the band Eurythmics, has taken one of the best movies of all time, Ghost, and turned it into a highly successful musical that has already found fame on stages in New York and London. In August of 2013, Dave Stewart plans to bring Ghost The Musical to Her Majesty's Theatre in Melbourne, Australia.
Dave Stewart knows that it may hard at first for audiences to warm up to Ghost without the late Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg in the lead roles, but promises audiences an emotional journey and a visual spectacular. "It's hard to explain how epic it is until you're actually watching it in the theatre," he said.
Will it be the same?
Dave Stewart claims that Ghost The Musical is not the same as the movie, but will be a bonafied tear jerker all the same. "From the minute the curtain opens, you realise it's not the same as the movie," he said. Some things will remain the same however. The hit song "Unchained Melody" and the famous pottery wheel Demi Moore's character used, have made their way into the musical.
Musical genius Andrew Lloyd Webber who introduced theatre classics like The Phantom of the Opera to the world, called Ghost The Musical the best musical in 20 years.
Casting has not begun for Ghost The Musical yet, but producer Louise Withers did state that an Australian wide search would be held to find the best actors for the parts.
