After a huge success in Russia and Germany, Ghost the Musical finally arrived in Paris, complete with a delightful soundtrack and surprisingly special effects.
Go there without hesitation! The actors are all excellent and sing very well. Special mention for Claudia Tagbo who is perfect for this role! The staging is identical to the film and the scenery superb. We had an excellent evening.
Beautiful, sublime, true, intense, the work of talented actors is admired ...All actors are ultra talented. A fantastic orchestra, sumptuous sets ... We forget the film and live through the story and enjoy the moment .... A show that will be very difficult to match.
Excellent! the spirit of the film is completely respected! Special mention to Claudia Tagbo and her comic power. The sets are beautiful; we did not feel the time pass by.
Amazing story and performance. Uncompromised visual effects. Every actor does justice to his/her role. I highly recommend seeing this spectacle.
I'm astonished as to how the main character Sam displayed his death as the stunt double was on the floor, I did not notice when they had switched. Needless to say that the effects were really good. I was trying to hold back my tears.
History and Fun Facts about the Théâtre Mogador
Inspired by the English music hall style in 1919, it was originally named “Palace Theatre” in hopes to appeal to British soldiers during WWI. A few years later, it was renamed Théâtre Mogador after an old city in western Morocco and inaugurated by the then-future American president, Franklin D. Roosevelt. The theatre has been a venue dedicated to musical shows, gaining its fame with performances such as Sergei Diaghilev’s “Ballet Russes”, and operettas such as Mistinguett, one of France's most popular singers throughout the 1920s and 1930s. With its French charm, British playhouse architectural inspiration, and famous international shows, the Théâtre Mogador has been pleasing audiences for over a century.
Théâtre Mogador is right in the middle of the 9th arrondissement, where you can also find many bustling restaurants and bars, or explore the beautiful Parisian Passage des Panoramas.
The Théâtre Mogador is the place to see Broadway-esque renditions, and in the past has welcomed celebrated productions such as Cats, The Lion King, or Mamma Mia! The Théâtre Mogador is now a space that frequently welcomes classic Broadway shows with a French twist, perfect for a Parisian theatre night.
