Pretty Woman Musical To Open On Broadway Next Summer

Image result for pretty woman film logoNow for those of you who have read any of my previous blogs, you know I am not a big fan of movies turned into musicals. Having said that, I have to admit that I was a little intrigued when I heard that one of my favorite film's of all time was headed to the stage.

Pretty Woman, which is based on the award winning film of the same name, will have it's world premier next year at the Oriental Theatre in Chicago. Performances are set to begin on March 13. 2018, where it will play a limited five week engagement, prior to it's Broadway run.

The show is scheduled to open at the Nederlander Theatre on August 16. Now I know what you're thinking. Who are the two lucky actor's that have been chosen to play the film's beloved couple? Well I'll tell you. Playing Vivian, the girl from the wrong side of the tracks is Samantha Barks (Les Miserables).

Playing her Prince Charming in disguise is Tony Award winner Steve Kazee (Once). Sounds like good casting to me. Not only that, but directing and choreographing the show is two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots, On Your Feet). But wait. It get's better. Pretty Woman: The Musical features a book co-written by the film’s director, Garry Marshall, and screenwriter J.F. Lawton, and music and lyrics by Grammy winner Bryan Adams and his longtime songwriting partner, Jim Vallance.

Now do you see why I am so excited? Tickets for the Chicago as well as the Broadway production are scheduled to go on sale in the coming weeks. Not only that, but we will be selling it. Get your tickets to see Pretty Woman at the Oriental Theatre in Chicago and on Broadway at the Nederlander Theatre. Until next time theatre fans.
