Saw Ghost in January 2017. Whenever we go or are invited to attend the Circa 21 it has always been a great experience. This musical was fun and they all did a great job in performing it. Meal was a bonus....it was de-lish.

If memory serves me correctly, dessert was about $5 each. Drinks were $3 to $8, roughly, depending on alcohol vs. non-alcohol. Wine by the bottle also is available.
