Perez Reviews: Ghost

We went in to see Ghost on Monday having heard the negative chatter. We were prepared for dreadful, but thankfully we got entertaining but mediocre instead!

The one big thing missing from the musical was heart! For a show all about love, it seemed like a lot of love was lacking in the process of putting it all together.

Ghost felt very cold, in every sense. It felt like somebody had an idea to cash in on a hit film and assembled a musical by-the-books. Unfortunately, it failed to meet the standard of excellence one expects from a hit Broadway musical!

What was MOST disappointing in the musical was the music! Rather shocking how lackluster the songs were, considering the A-list team behind the score and lyrics. Hit songwriters Dave Stewart and Glen Ballard failed to deliver. Big time! Their songs felt uninspired!

When the only memorable song in your musical is the only song you didn't write (Unchained Melody), as they say in the show: "You in danger, girl!"

If Ghost the musical had launched in the early 90s, we think it would have been a big hit! But it just doesn't work in this day and age.

Having said all that, we were entertained. The show was just a missed opportunity! It didn't live up to its full potential!

The illusions and special effects were super rad! The staging and scenic design was big and impressive! The choreography and modern dance numbers were dreary, though.

But there were some fabulous performances! Da'Vine Joy Randolph stole the show playing the Whoopi Goldberg part! And Richard Fleeshman was so charismatic and likeable in the Patrick Swayze role.

Caissie Levy, however, felt miscast in the Demi Moore role. She has a great voice, which she overused with some major oversinging at times, but she failed to bring anything special to the part. She lacked, in this role, the charisma that Fleeshman and Randolph brought to theirs.

If you're in NYC, though, and can get cheap seats to Ghost, then it's definitely worth your time and money!

What a beautiful way to remember him. Whenever we think on Patrick Swayze, we always remember him as the sexy Johnny Castle standing tall and dancing sultry to the music with Jennifer Grey. Such a legacy.

Yesterday, his wife Lisa Niemi was on hand to unveil the wax figure of her husband at Madame Tussauds Hollywood, depicting him in a pivotal scene in Dirty Dancing.

Very sweet. Now, hold long before someone tries to do a lift with it. LOL.

Dirty Dancing's Remake Director Brushin' His Shoulders Off

Dirty Dancing Remake

Kenny Ortega is fully aware of the hate spewed his way, but he's ready for the challenge that lies ahead as he directs the remake of Dirty Dancing.

The beloved 80s film is a classic. Everyone knows 'nobody puts baby in a corner.'

But some people thinking remaking such a classic is doing just that.

However, the director assures us he doesn't want to cause any disrespect, stating:
