Ghost The Musical



Last week, I headed to Times Square after work for a performance of Ghost, The Musical at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre. I've been in love with the movie since I first laid eyes on it (Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore.... can you blame me?!) so you can imagine my excitement when I was invited to participate in this Blogger Night, right?! Yup... psyched!

I certainly wasn't expecting the live show to live up to the movie. And, in many ways, it didn't. I mean, who can out-perform Mr. Swayze himself and how can one convey ghosts and the after-life on stage?! However, I was excited to see the younger, promising actors on stage that I've heard so much about these past few weeks.

And they did not disappoint. Richard Fleeshman embodies Sam Wheat, Cassie Levy plays a great Molly, and Da'Vine Joy Randolph delivers a stellar performance as the always-funny Oda Mae Brown. I'm not just saying that to say it -- the audience loved them, and the show was special in its own right.

I especially liked the special effects during the performance used to convey the after-life and Sam Wheat passing through walls and doors and subway cars. It topped all of my expectations and felt like somewhat of a magic show as well as a musical.

All in all, it was a good night for Mommy Delicious to hit the town and a good night on Broadway.


Ghost, The Musical will run through August 18th at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre (205 West 46th Street) so be sure to get your tickets if you want to check out all the magic! Tickets run from $55.50 -- $145.50, with specials on group sales.
