Read These Words from GHOST Writer Bruce Joel Rubin


As the hugely successful U.K. Tour of GHOST THE MUSICAL drew to a close this past weekend, the creator of the show reached out to the hundreds of thousands of fans of the show with this beautiful statement, released via the tour’s official social media sites on Saturday, March 8, 2014:

To All of Our UK fans,

Bruce Joel Rubin

“When I wrote GHOST as a movie nearly 25 years ago I never dreamed that people would still be talking about it all these years later. And I never ever imagined that they would be singing its songs (I never imagined that it would even have songs) or that people would see it repeatedly in theaters all over the UK. I am told that there are people who have seen it 50 times (besides the producers) and I am overwhelmed by the love and support you have offered all along the way. From the moment we opened in Manchester, almost three years ago, I could feel the roar of approval and joy that filled the theater night after night. I can even feel it now. Thank you for that gift. Thank you for embracing our show, for caring about it, for believing in it. You are why we made it. It is my deepest hope and prayer that the love inside – you take it with you.” —Always, Bruce Joel Rubin
