With the big press conference last week announcing the Spice Girls musical, the quiet confirmation that Ghost the Musical would be closing in October became louder amongst theatre goers. Although many knew already, and others had heard rumours before the cast knew there’d been no big announcement and with the show having similar rumours state side (though hopefully with no truth) it could be that the journey for Ghost the Musical is coming to a more permanent end than what would be liked.
Some of you may remember when this blog first started I ranted and raved about this show – before I’d even seen it I was obsessed with the soundtrack and I got a chance to see it in October and loved it. It’s a fantastic show and I can only recommend that people go see it while they have the chance. I can only hope it tours as I think it’d do well – though they’d have to compromise with some of the set pieces that are just phenomenal.
Anyway, I wanted to post this blog to say go see it if you have the chance and also to post this video. When Ghost the Musical first started it really embraced social media. Before the show even premiered/previewed they streamed a showcase of the soundtrack live from Abbey Road – this video is a highlights package of that:
