GHOST: THE MUSICAL Composer Glen Ballard Congratulates Cast Of US TourMulti-award-winning chart-topping hitmaker Glen Ballard stopped by the national touring production of his screen-to-stage musical adaptation GHOST: THE MUSICAL earlier this month and a behind the scenes video of him congratulating the cast is now available to view.

"I just loved what you're doing - amazing. So much energy and so much nuance," Ballard enthusiastically relays to a performer in the new clip.

The official description of GHOST: THE MUSICAL is as follows: "Ghost The Musical delivers a visual experience unlike anything you've seen before. Relive the iconic and magical moments from the Oscar-winning movie in a brand-new Broadway musical that takes you on a thrilling adventure to the afterlife. You will be amazed to see inanimate objects take on a life of their own, a person walk through a solid door right before your eyes and other special effects that will astonish and leave you gasping. Ghost The Musical features an original pop score from multiple Grammy Award-winners Dave Stewart (one half of the 80s pop duo the Eurythmics) and Glen Ballard (co-writer with Alanis Morissette on the multi-platinum album Jagged Little Pill, among many other notable credits and collaborations). It is adapted from the hit film by its Academy Award-winning screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin (Ghost, Jacob's Ladder, The Time Traveler's Wife). Illusions are created by famous stage and film illusionist Paul Kieve (Hugo, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, Matilda the Musical, Pippin). Ghost follows Sam and Molly, a young couple whose connection takes a shocking turn after Sam's untimely death. Trapped between two worlds, Sam refuses to leave Molly when he learns she is in grave danger. Desperate to communicate with her, he turns to a storefront psychic who helps him protect Molly and avenge his death. Ghost The Musical is "eye-poppingly brilliant with glorious songs" (AP) and is "one of the most adventurous and modern musicals ever seen." (WOR Radio). Believe in love, believe in fate, believe in forever with Ghost The Musical."
