Ghost The Musical – review

‘A visually striking show which breaks the barriers of traditional musical theatre’

When it was initially announced that the 1990 Oscar-winning film Ghost was to be reincarnated into a West End show, the overall assumption was that there was no chance it would be anything more than a gimmicky take on a well-loved but, ultimately, cheesy classic.

9 to 5 Glasgow Review

9to5pic

Musicals don’t come much spunkier or more colourful than 9 to 5, the hilarious stage production based around Dolly Parton’s most renowned hit song and the 1970’s film of the same name. Telling the story of three gutsy office workers who take their sexist and egotistical boss hostage whilst they attempt to unearth enough evidence of his dodgy business dealings to send him to jail, the popular show makes for a fun and mischievous girls night out. Playing extra shows in Glasgow until 12 January due to unprecedented demand, it’s an absolute must-see for anyone looking for some light-hearted escapism from their own 9 to 5 job.
