Rose has a problem. She’s been betrayed by her lover, a local tree-dwelling astronomer, with her very own sister. Rose seeks vengeance and a passing bear might just offer the answer. But his services come at a price: a pot of honey, one piece of stardust, a secret baptism – and a photo of a ghost.
A kaleidoscopic journey spanning continents, centuries and the cosmos ensues. But even through the fogs of time and a haze of whiskey, Rose can’t shake the feeling that she’s done this all before…
Boulevard Theatre’s opening production is Ghost Quartet, an intoxicating musical of love, loss and spirits – of both the spectral and alcoholic kind. This hauntingly beautiful song cycle is a story about stories themselves; how we tell them, how we hear them, and how they evolve, intertwine and draw us in.
“Written and composed by Dave Malloy — the rollicking talent behind the hit Off Broadway popera Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812 — this happily haunted song cycle speaks in many styles. The voguish term “mash-up” doesn’t begin to capture its breadth or its quirky sincerity”
“An intoxicating night of ghosts and stars”
“Bewitching… the cast are sublime.”

This highly unusual and rewarding show is hard to categorise - there is a narrative, but it is presented kaleidoscopically; a series of jigsaw pieces scattered through the songs which combine to give a sort of narrative closure by the end. The performers are multi-talented . Superb singers, instrumentalists and wonderful actors. The lyrics are SO beautiful, and so poetic. There is laughter, whisky, a little audience participation (nothing scary). The theatre is absolutely gorgeous. You see the performance in the round which gives a wonderful intimacy.

A different and thoroughly enjoyable show!

I was intrigued by the synopsis of the Ghost Quartet. It described a search for honey, stardust, a baptism and a photograph of a ghost! The cast were mesmerising and incredibly talented. I didn't follow all the literary references and was sometimes confused as to which character was being portrayed at the time, but the whole show was swept along by the wonderful voices and music. It had a mystical feel that left me feeling elated as I left the theatre (or maybe that was the whiskey that was given out during the performance!)

Ghosts Show Plenty of ‘Spirit!’
4 December 2019
A full-on and lusty performance by all performers: the 2 female singers particularly caught the eye (and indeed your ear!). The Boulevard Theatre in London’s Soho district is a small and interesting ‘in-the-round’ theatre with the stage in the middle of the audience and involving discreet and appropriate audience participation. Performers for ‘Ghost Quartet’ need good singing voices, ability to play a range of musical instruments, humour and much stamina! They were successful on all levels. An unusual but thoroughly enjoyable watch. The ending was particularly intriguing! Well done! to all the cast.
