The musical takes place following the murder of a young man, with his spirit warning his lover of impending doom with the help of a psychic. Eerie stuff.
The movie and the musical feature unforgettable songs including The Righteous Brothers' Unchained Melody and extremely popular With You.
The film won an Oscar for screenwriter Bruce Joel Rubin, who went on to adapt the screenplay for the stage.
Since its premiere at the Manchester Opera House, the musical has made its way across the globe including to London's West End in 2011 and Broadway in 2012.
