So many people are excited about “Ghost” coming to Rochester. It is the first show coming to the Rochester Auditorium Theater as part of the Rochester Broadway Theater League's 2013-2014 season.
Albert Nocciolino, RBTL producer, said, “We've very excited. It's a show. We all know the movie, everybody knows the movie I think. It was Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore and Whoopi Goldberg and the unchained melody that everybody knows from the movie and everybody cries in that movie.”
“Ghost” was originally produced in London, adapted from movie to the stage and then brought to Broadway last year. Producer Albert Nocciolino says the fact that actor Patrick Swayze passed away in real life just adds to the emotion on stage.
Nocciolino said, "It's filled with all the same music. The suspense of that story with Patrick, unfortunately, passing away and then doing that on the stage like the movie is pretty incredible. It is a lot of fun and I think something I think everyone will enjoy particularly people who haven't been to the theater before. I think the best part of this show is the visual affects. Trying to do that on stage. You can do anything with movies, on stage it is harder because it is taking place right in front of you and they do accomplish that with this show which is really part of the excitement of that show as well as the story itself."
