To do this, they will make use, for example, of a series of custom-made wigs for each character that recreates the hairstyles of that time period. Also, the actress who will give life to Molly will be brunette as well as the one in the movie: "We wanted to respect the original essence," said the alderman.
In addition, to continue respecting the time in which the film took place, Lisiardi said that a curtain will be used to carry out the work in an "intimate and traditional" way, fleeing from modern projections.
To accompany the above will be the music that will come from the hand of a band formed by five components: pianists, drums, bassist and guitarist. All this live and under the musical direction of Julio Awad that will lead the audience towards the 90's pop-rock. Lisiardi mentioned that the musical of Ghost which was done on Broadway also had the collaboration of five live musicians. Therefore he clarified that he has not undergone modifications, but that in Bilbao the band will be hidden from the public because of the assembly because they currently share the stage platform with the musical The call.
