As Ghost The Musical prepares for its New York premiere this March, people are wondering exactly how the production is able to offer such an effective and dynamic rendering of scenes associated with the movie. How do you capture a film and put it on the stage? How do you make the most of what film has to offer and combine it with and exploit the power of live performance? That’s one question that the creators of Ghost The Musical had to deal with as they prepared and planned for the stage version.
The solutions they came up with are quite extraordinary. The scenic and lighting elements combine to create an amazingly powerful experience that greatly affects audiences and has helped to make this play the latest smash hit musical in London’s West End. Once you see Ghost The Musical (for a preview video click here), you’ll want to see it again for many reasons, one of which is the true entertainment value you get by purchasing Early Bird Discount tickets for as little as $59.00 for the upcoming New York premiere. You get so much show for so little money!
Wall Street, Subway and More
Take a look at this video and you’re going to see some truly amazing effects created. Known as Virtual Reality Stagecraft, it includes digital video, stereoscopic 3D projection, motion capture, and real time virtual reality navigation. The effects are tremendous and amazingly advanced. In this show, the Wall Street surrounds the chorus of workers with walls of stock quotes and the NYC subway scene is visually and aurally stunning. These used to be referred to as “projections” less than five years ago. But they are so much more than that. They can have as much of as impact as any other element and they allow designers to utilize time, space, image and sound in ways never before imagined.
Lighting the Way
Ghost The Musical utilizes lighting design in a detailed manner, reinforcing ambience, emotion and character. Sculpting, moving, defining space and reinforcing and delineating various worlds, places and forms of existence, this design element creates a texture that is detailed and finely tuned.
The Design Team
Some of the design team includes Hugh Vanstone (Lighting), Jon Driscoll (Video and Projection), Bobby Aitken (Sound Designer), Paul Kieve (Illusionist) and Rob Howell (Designer). Each is a first class specialist with not only an array of credits but also a dedication to being on the cutting edge.
