Carla R. Stewart Will Lift Your Spirits in ‘GHOST The Musical’

Chicago “the Windy City”,  my home town. The second I got the call from my agent saying I booked the role of Oda Mae Brown in Ghost the Musical I immediately checked the itinerary. I waited until then because I didn’t want to get excited about the itinerary if I wasn’t going to be a part of the production. There it was, this tour was heading to my home, Chicago, and I couldn’t be happier!

Performing is one thing, but to do it in Chicago has a whole other type of excitement. There are so many people here who have encouraged, supported, and helped cultivate my talent and gift, so when I hit the stage here it’s for all my family and friends.

Chicago has so much to offer – one of my favorites to talk and rave about is THE FOOD! Now I will admit I am biased, but rightfully so. I’ve been to quite a few cities so far but none can compare. I’m all for real local, eating pizza from Beggars, Home Run Inn, Italian Fiesta and other places like Harold’s Chicken, going to Greek town, and oh you can’t forget a staple like Garrett’s Popcorn. Needless to say I better stick to my workout regimen because I’m hitting up all my favorites! Chicago…my home town.

You can catch Carla R. Stewart as Oda Mae Brown in GHOST The Musical, now playing at the Oriental Theatre through January 19, 2014. We’ll be hosting a Twitter chat with Carla at 12:30pm today! Ask any questions you might have for her using #GhostBIC and she’ll reach into the great beyond for the answer you seek.

Even if you’re not familiar with the movie there are plenty of reasons to come see Ghost The Musical. Here are 10 of our favorites:

1. The visual effects in the show are astounding. Most of these illusions have never been done in a musical before.

Sting Performs ‘And Yet’ on The Ellen Show

Sting stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to serenade the audience with a song from The Last Ship.

He also took the opportunity to share about his winemaking experience and offered her a sample from his vineyards. Let’s hope he brings a few bottles to Chicago with him!
