Ghost the Musical

Houston Public Media's Troy Schulze talks with Ghost the Musical's Steven Grant Douglas, who plays "Sam" (the Patrick Swayze role), about the famous pottery scene and adapting movies into musicals. The show runs at the Hobby Center through February 23.

Ghost the Musical flopped on Broadway, but it’s thriving on the road, thanks to spectacular visual effects and Las Vegas-style illusions. Actor Steven Grant Douglas (“Sam”) talks with Houston Public Media’s Troy Schulze about screen-to-stage musicals, recreating the famous “pottery scene” and the pressure of performing a role Patrick Swayze made famous here in Houston, Swayze’s hometown.
