We are excited about this! Pretty Woman (the movie) is an absolute classic – who doesn’t love a good old fashioned love story about a rich guy and a prostitute falling in love! 😉
Here’s what we know about it…
- It stars Samantha Barks and Steve Kazee in the lead roles. Back in 2008, Samantha Barks came third in the BBC show “I’d Do Anything” and she starred as Éponine in the film Les Misérables. Steve has appeared in episodes of TV shows such as Elementary, NCIS and CSI, as well as a number of Broadway musicals.
- The show opens on Broadway in July 2018, but premiered in Chicago for a five week initial run
- The musical will feature original songs – we were kinda hoping the film music might feature, although with music and lyrics by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance, we have high hopes!
- The initial critic reviews generally are fairly positive – check them out here (although we have seen a few reviews from theatregoers who were disappointed with the show):

Is it wrong that we’re thinking of booking a flight to New York just to see it?!
