It's one of the most popular romance movies and back when it was released in 1990 it was celebrated both critically and at the box office.

The Double Academy Award winning film starring Patrick Swayze and Demi Moore, is a tale of heartbreak as a couple is torn apart by murder.

The film adds fantasy and thriller to an otherwise classic love story - making it a story that has won over many hearts in its time.

They say if it鈥檚 not broke, don鈥檛 fix it.

So it鈥檚 easy to see why fans are anxious when a much loved film is turned into a musical.

But the musical adaptation of Ghost needn鈥檛 scare anyone at all.

It does exactly what it sets out to do - breathe new life into the film and characters with music.

Anybody who seen Ghost the Musical touring would know that former Girls Aloud singer, Sarah Harding used to play Molly and certain critics gave her bad reviews.

That however does not reflect the production as a whole and within 10 minutes into the first half, it was evident for everyone to see.

Carolyn Maitland does a brilliant job of making people forget about the ghosts of Sarah Harding鈥檚 past.

In fact, Carolyn plays Molly beautifully and the chemistry between her and Andy Moss (who plays Sam) is second to none.

If there鈥檚 one thing that took me by surprise it鈥檚 the pipes on both Carolyn and Andy.

With You isn鈥檛 just a tricky song because of the emotion - it鈥檚 technically challenging too.

But Carolyn didn鈥檛 have to worry - her voice was more than enough to give that goosebump moment that the song needs.

However if there鈥檚 one person who stole the show it鈥檚 Jacqui Dubois playing Oda Mae.

She had some big Whoopie Goldberg size shoes to fill and she did just that.

Be prepared for a laugh when she takes the stage. Jacqui鈥檚 comic timing is perfect and her energy didn鈥檛 drop throughout.

She鈥檒l have you laughing with witty one liners from the first scene she enters to the last.

The set and supporting cast do a brilliant job of making the stage really feel like New York city.

Cutting between scenes is quick and seamless, blink and you鈥檒l miss the neat tricks and change overs.

The group performances also pulled the show along perfectly.

Movie adaptations can go one of two ways - they either work or they don鈥檛.

Throw a few musical numbers into the mix and you鈥檙e in dangerous territory but this show needn鈥檛 worry.

Along with the cast and production team, they have done a wonderful job of bringing new life to Ghost again.

Unchained Melody comes along to pull at the heart strings too.

Ghost the Musical is at Liverpool Empire Theatre from Monday, April 10 to Saturday, April 15.
