Pretty Woman: The Musical
Unlikely romance and some big, huge hits
A show about hoping and dreaming and changing your life.
The Telegraph’s review of the Broadway production of Pretty Woman: The Musical
Nearly 30 years ago, Julia Roberts starred alongside Richard Gere in the Hollywood film that would make her a household name. Now, following a long run on Broadway, the improbable hit about an escort who captures the heart of a wealthy client hits the West End as the Pretty Woman show rolls into town.
Straight from Broadway to the West End
Beloved by audiences since the early 90s, Pretty Woman tells the tale of Vivian Ward, who is hired by the rich but emotionally unavailable businessman Edward Lewis to act as his date. During the course of their relationship both their assumptions of each other – and their lives – are changed forever.
In the West End show Vivian is played by theatrical powerhouse Aimie Atkinson, whose past credits include an Olivier Award-nominated run as Katherine Howard in Six. Danny Mac takes on the role of businessman Edward following stints in White Christmas and Amèlie. The talent behind the scenes is pretty exceptional too; two-time Tony Award-winner Jerry Mitchell directs and the original score is by Grammy winner Bryan Adams.
To miss this would be a big mistake. Big. Huge.
