Musical theatre usually doesn't float my boat, which is why I don't write about it very much. Ghost, the musical version of the 1990 movie of the same name, now playing in Melbourne.

In the movie, Sam (Patrick Swayze) badgered Molly (Demi Moore) into dating him by repeatedly singing Herman's Hermits 1965 hit, I'm Henery the VIII, I Am to her. Alas, there was no way of incorporating this song into the show, presumably because its levity wasn't in keeping with its serious tone.
