You know you loved the movie, and will always remember the famous phrase ‘Ditto’, so how could you miss the Oscar-winning movie Ghost in its brand-new Broadway musical format?
It’s here in Atlanta this week and I got to catch the show last night.
Want to know what blew me away most?
The incredible special effects and illusions.
Without a doubt, the effects are the star of this show. I feel like I have to apologize to the cast in saying that, but I’ve never seen the kinds of effects that I saw on stage last night, especially the subway scene where you truly feel like you’re riding the subway with them. Imagine how tough that had to be for them to create…turning an entire stage into a subway car? But it’s done in a way that feels 3D and realistic, right in front of you!
The cast is great, too, along with the music. I absolutely loved all the different ways I heard ‘Unchained Melody’.
