THE MEN BEHIND THE MUSIC OF GHOST THE MUSICAL
UPDATE: When the producers re-establish the link to the video below, I will re-post it!
The people behind Ghost: The Musical have been kind enough to allow me to be one of just a handful of bloggers to gain access to a series of videos about the making of this new Broadway musical. And so I am thrilled to be able to post for you a brief behind-the-scenes look at the two men responsible for the music and lyrics of this movie-turned-stage show. And they are some pretty heavy hitters in the world of popular music. David Stewart is probably best known as the man playing instruments behind Annie Lennox when together they were known as Eurythmics. A child of the 80's, I knew something of Stewart. But I had no idea just how influential Glen Ballard is! I mean he wrote "The Man in the Mirror," worked on Thriller, and has written, performed and/or produced such acts as Wilson Philips, Van Halen, No Doubt, Alanis Morissette and the Dave Matthews Band, among others. While certainly not a Broadway guarantee, with a pedigree like this, the score - recorded and live - should be an awesome ear experience.
BEHIND THE SCENES WITH NEWSIES' ENSEMBLE!
One of the side benefits of doling everything out in small pieces, even the stuff that usually gets ignored (like the ensemble) finds itself in the spotlight. Enjoy!
