Ghost, a movie we are all so familiar with in the year 1990, is now a musical production which started in Manchester since the year 2011. I’ve been following them since and finally they have arrived in Singapore! I was so happy when I managed to get a ticket for myself with discounts given for GV movie members.
It was also my first time at MasterCard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands and I must say the service was tip top. Although I couldn’t snap any shots with my camera as I had to surrender at the counter, I must say I was impress with the smooth flow of the crowd by the ushers and friendly services rendered. A place fit to hold such an international production.
Seating was alright but could be a little more comfy if I were to pay for the full price of $125. Aircondition was good for me, so ladies, you know what to bring. Sound system was amazing, every voice projection was apparent and clear.
Now the musical. Apart from idiots talking when the show was on, I don’t think I should go into details if not it’ll spoil everyone’s mood but overall it is a fantastic production, top class actors and actresses, beautiful soundtracks, excellent props and back screen plays. Not so much of magic, but more of optical illusions. I teared badly in the scenes when Molly started singing ‘With You’ in the first half and when Sam got into the body of the hilarious psychic Oda Mae Brown and danced with Molly in the second half. Well that’s all I can say and I’m still in awe with the train scenes, raining scenes, how the props just slides in and out, etc. Love it! Not to mention the sounds used for every detail like Sam trying to grab a cup, getting punched, Sam’s voice with more echo when he’s talking in the mortal world. And the lights, wow, love it when the pale blue light follows Sam around to show that he’s ghost while the warm lights shine normally on the living. Such details gives the show a tighter finish and an overall satisfying experience.
I just love how this musical triggers some strings in everyone’s hearts when at a certain time in your life, you miss that person so so much. Reminds me of an ex of mine, whom we recently made it clear our relationship and not a day goes by I don’t miss her. (I’m seriously tearing while typing this in the bus on my way home from MBS) I love her and never fail to say it everyday to her. Somehow it’s been too long, and I guess things just couldn’t work out anymore. So if you love someone, tell them you love them, but in my case, she doesn’t appreciate it and I find it pointless to say it anymore. Sigh…
So go watch this musical with someone you love, or alone like me. If your tears flow, let it flow. Partners it’s best you keep quiet and watch the musical. The best you can do is standby tissue papers, depending on how much water can flow through those eyes.
