‘Ghost the Musical’ to hit Zorlu PSM stage
The musical version of one of Hollywood’s most legendary romantic fantasy thrillers, “Ghost the Musical,” will be staged at Istanbul’s Zorlu PSM Main Theater from Oct. 19 to Nov. 4 for a total of 21 performances.
The 1990 Jerry Zucker movie “Ghost” is based on a twisted love story that features a New Yorker couple, Sam and Molly.
Walking back to their apartment late one night a tragic encounter sees Sam murdered and his beloved girlfriend Molly alone, in despair and utterly lost. But with the help of a phony storefront psychic, Sam, trapped between this world and the next, tries to communicate with Molly in the hope of saving her from grave danger.
“Ghost the Musical” premiered at Manchester Opera House in 2011, directed by Tony Award winner Matthew Warchus, and featuring Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy in the leading roles. In the same year, the musical premiered in the West End, at the Piccadilly Theater and was praised by the critics for its visual effects. The show premiered on Broadway in 2012.
In 2016 the musical was re-imagined in a new production produced by Bill Kenwright and directed by Bob Tomson. The show toured the U.K. and in 2018 embarked on a big international tour, which the Istanbul performance is a part of.
The movie “Ghost” has proven to be one of cinema’s biggest all-time hits. Starring the late Patrick Swayze, Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg, it was the highest grossing film of 1990 and won an Oscar for screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin, who has adapted his screenplay for the musical.
Tickets for the performances at Istanbul’s Zorlu PSM Main Theater will be available from biletix.com.
