BWW Reviews: Il fantasma del Brancaccio: GHOST arriva a Roma!
by Nino Prattico - Jan 29, 2014

Non si puo dire che la stagione teatrale 2013-2014 non abbia una curiosa attrazione per il "paranormale". Dopo L'ULTIMA STREGA, il delizioso FANTASMI A ROMA e l'esilarante FRANKENSTEIN JUNIOR, le scene romane tornano a essere infestate da presenze ectoplasmatiche con un altro musical la cui trama prende le mosse dal confine tra l'aldiqua e l'aldila. Sto parlando di GHOST, l'ultimo sforzo produttivo di M.A.S. e Poltronissima S.r.l., gia reduci dai fasti di PRISCILLA, LA REGINA DEL DESERTO. Lo spettacolo, diretto da Stefano Genovese (gia regista di GYPSY, AVENUE Q e THE MISSION) e basato sull'omonimo successo cinematografico del 1990, si avvale delle musiche di Dave Stewart (ex membro degli Eurythmics) e Glen Ballard e del libretto firmato da Bruce Joel Rubin. Dopo il debutto londinese nel 2011, lo show si e trasferito a Broadway nel 2012 ricevendo, in entrambi i casi, una tiepida accoglienza. La critica newyorkese, con cui mi trovo d'accordo, lo ha definito un "giretto canoro e privo di emozioni in un parco a tema" che "fa per lo piu affidamento su scenografie video elaborate, modesti effetti speciali e la familiarita della storia d'amore fantasmatica." Altri hanno rincarato la dose affermando che "senza questi trucchi sbalorditivi, lo show non offrirebbe niente di che": lo script toppa, le musiche sono "innocue e dimenticabili" e alcuni numeri sembrano essere motivati solo dall'effetto visivo che provocano e non dal loro essere strettamente necessari all'economia dello spettacolo. Č anche vero che, purtroppo, in Italia si ragiona secondo parametri ancora totalmente diversi - se non opposti - rispetto a quelli di Broadway. Pertanto, nella stesura della recensione, mi limitero a commentare la messinscena italiana senza far riferimento alle fallacie strutturali che questo spettacolo presentava gia a monte. (more...)
