Ghost The Musical

 

 

‘The best single argument for putting this film on stage is Paul Kieve’s special effects’  Dominic Maxwell, The Times

Ghost The Musical, featuring ground breaking effects by Paul Kieve, completed  its successful West End run at the Piccadilly Theatre back in 2012, but continues to tour the world.  . It  played to over 250,000 people in London. Not only did the national critics unanimously praise his work,  but many of his fellow magicians raved about it. Teller (Penn and Teller) described it as ‘one of the finest magic shows I’ve ever been to’ and twittered about its ‘stunning optical magic’. Mac King who has had his own magic show on the Las Vegas strip for over 14 years wrote  ‘Ghost has some of the most incredible tricks that I’ve seen in any show of any kind’.

‘The appeal lies in Matthew Warchus’s super-slick production and Paul Kieve’s illusions, which use the latest technology to zoom bodies through solid doors.. and a plethora of other amazing special effects. These set a new industry standard and should win awards’

Robert Gore-Langton, Mail On Sunday.

‘Paul Kieve, who created the illusions, and Sharon D Clarke, playing the phoney psychic .. are two of the secret weapons of British theatre, and steal the show with their contributions – the first by stealth, the second with sass.’
