Pretty Woman: The Musical
Pretty Woman, one of the most beloved romantic comedies of all time, swept the world off it’s feet, and made millions believe in happily ever after. Now, it’s coming to Broadway!
Brought to life by a powerhouse creative team representing the best of music, Hollywood and Broadway, Pretty Woman: The Musical is sure to be the runaway hit of the 2018-19 Broadway season. Directed and choreographed by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, Legally Blonde, Hairspray), and featuring an original score by Grammy winner Bryan Adams (“Summer of ’69,” “Everything I Do”) and his longtime songwriting partner Jim Vallance, and a book by the movie’s legendary director Garry Marshall and screenwriter J.F. Lawton, this unconventional love story is sure to lighten your heart.
Often compared to “Pygmalion,” the George Bernard Shaw play that inspired My Fair Lady, Pretty Woman is a classic tale with a contemporary message. Vivian and Edward are unlikely soulmates who overcome all odds to find each other… and themselves. The show will star Samantha Barks (Éponine in the 2012 Les Misérables movie) in the Julia Roberts-originated role of Vivian, the prostitute who finds herself falling in love with a corporate raider who pays her to be his escort for a week. Tony winner Steve Kazee (Once) is Edward, the cynical Wall Street trader who learns to believe in fairy tales again, a role made famous by Richard Gere.
Experience the moments you love from the movie — get to know these iconic characters in a whole new way — in this dazzlingly theatrical take on a love story for the ages. See you there!
Saturdays, August 4 and October 6 @ $405.00
