Michael Giltz: Theater: Ghost, Leap Of Faith and Lyons Struggle on Broadway
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
GHOST THE MUSICAL * 1/2 out of **** LEAP OF FAITH ** out of **** THE LYONS ** 1/2 out of **** Three new shows on Broadway that have one thing in common: none of them are wholly satisfying, but they are all genuine attempts at serious theater. So hearing that Leap Of Faith will close on Sunday is too bad, even if it's not too surprising. Creating theater is some of the hardest work in the arts. When it succeeds, there's nothing better. When it doesn't quite click, they still go out again night after night and that must be awfully hard. None of these shows can even enjoy the delicious black humor of a notorious flop; they're just musicals and plays that didn't quite come together. GHOST THE MUSICAL * 1/2 LUNT-FONTANNE THEATRE One of the least promising ideas for turning a movie into a musical proves just as awkward and ill-suited as you might imagine. Based on the Oscar-winning (!) 1990 film starring Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg, it's an ungainly, tir ...

Fern Siegel: Stage Door: Ghost, The Columnist
The Huffington Post - almost 5 years
There is a difference between an apparition and the real thing -- and the same can be said of a Broadway show. It can be rendered cinematically, as in Ghost, The Musical, thereby becoming a musical that thinks it's a movie. The production, based on the 1990 film, dispenses with theatricality or stagecraft, though the magic effects are nifty. Yet a banal score and headache-inducing graphics don't seem to bother the crowds, who clearly came for a recap of the Demi Moore-Patrick Swayze hit. Sam Wheat (Richard Fleeshman), a Wall Street banker with hot artist girlfriend Molly (Caissie Levy), is living the good life in a trendy Brooklyn loft. They are deeply in love; though Sam can't verbalize "I love you," believing his actions speak for themselves. And they will. The two are mugged outside a restaurant, and Sam is killed. Distraught, Molly returns to their loft, where Sam's friend and colleague Carl (Bryce Pinkham), who does a nice turn as a slimy Wall Street broker, is unduly a ...

Ghost The Musical Review
The Faster Times - almost 5 years
Ghost grossed half a billion dollars and won an Academy Award for Whoopi Goldberg and for its screenplay, so perhaps it was inevitable the 1990 film would eventually be made into a musical. What was not inevitable is how spectacular Ghost the Musical is. Ghost the Musical, a British import, is spectacular not because of the music, although the original score offers a range of serviceable pop melodies (from rock ballads to blues, soul and gospel) by two songwriters who know what they’re doing; one created hits for Michael Jackson and Alanis Morissette, the other, Dave Stewart, paired with Annie Lennox as The Eurythmics. It also isn’t spectacular because of the dancing. It isn’t even the performers. Lord knows, it’s not because of its plot. In writing the book of the musical, Ghost screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin faithfully follows his movie scene by scene, with its uneasy marriage of romance, science fiction, comedy and crime thriller: Sam is unable to say he loves Molly until he i ...
