Clairvoyants, pottery teachers and Righteous Brothers CDs are set for a boost, with spectacular Ghost the Musical off and running at The Regent Theatre.

The illusion-filled show received a standing ovation from the alive at its February 6 opening and, should the spirit world exist, a no-doubt equally heartfelt reception from Melbourne theatre lovers now deceased.

Here’s hoping original Ghost star, the late Patrick Swayze, was a special afterlife guest; he’d have loved what he saw!

Pottery was never seen as an aphrodisiac until Ghost came along.
