Actor in Ghost the Musical Calls Charlotte Home
As if having a Broadway musical based on the 1990 hit film Ghost in Charlotte wasn’t exciting enough, one of the actors in the national tour is one of our own! Brandon Curry, who plays the Subway Ghost in Ghost the Musical, grew up in Charlotte and graduated from North Mecklenburg High School! He’ll be on stage at the Belk Theater April 1-6 when Ghost the Musical comes to Blumenthal Performing Arts Center.
In a recent interview with BroadwayWorld.com, he spoke in depth about growing up in Charlotte, his role in the show and more. Check out an excerpt from the interview below!
You come from North Carolina, where did you grow up?
I was closer to Huntersville. I went to North Mecklenburg High School. I was a Charlotte kid.
What was it like growing up in Charlotte?
I have fond memories. It was great! Charlotte supports theater, and I was involved in great recreational programs growing up.
How long have you been acting?
When I was 14 years old, I was in Twist and Shout. I was also cast in a production about dating violence, which toured all CMS schools, while I was in high school.
How did you get the role of “Subway Ghost”?
Curry: It was an open call with 400 people.
What was your most memorable experience in your profession?
I’m going to put Ghost first. To work with this very professional team with Broadway Tony-winning people. They are so organized. It’s been a great experience.
How do you prepare for this role?
I used to listen to hip-hop to prepare, before I relied on my own technique. I have the confidence to know I will give it 100 percent every time. It’s like running a marathon, and I run it every day. It’s in my emotional and physical muscle memory.
