What is the Pretty Woman musical about?
Pretty Woman follows the story of Vivian, a role made famous by Julia Roberts in the film, who when working the streets of Sunset Boulevard, comes across wealthy businessman Edward (played by Richard Gere in the film), who hires her for the week to accompany him to business events and social functions. The pair grow increasingly close, but their worlds couldn’t be further apart. Despite the drastic differences in their lives, Edward doesn’t want to let Vivian go. However, Vivian turns Edward down when he offers her a deal and not the love she’s looking for. After all, everyone deserves a knight in shining armour, right?

Where is the Pretty Woman musical playing?
Pretty Woman is currently playing at the Nederlander Theatre on Broadway to rave reviews. The musical also broke all Nederlander Theatre box office records during previews, grossing over 1 million dollars. It is now set to premiere in the 'West End of Germany' in Hamburg at the Stage Theater an der Elbe this September. However, the show received its world premiere in Chicago at the Oriental Theatre for a limited five-week run before transferring to Broadway.
The official venue for the West End transfer of Pretty Woman has been announced; the show will be running at the Piccadilly Theatre. Given the overwhelming success of the Broadway production, West End tickets are subject to high demand.
Pretty Woman musical songs
The story of Pretty Woman is already as romantic as can be but surely the romance levels will be going through the roof now that it’s been adapted into a musical. Writing songs for such a well-loved story would probably be intimidating for anyone, but Bryan Adams isn’t just anyone. This legendary artist, best known for his hits ‘Summer of ‘69’ and ‘Everything I do’, teamed up again with Jim Vallance to take on the challenge. Adams has admitted he didn’t watch the film whilst working on the songs as he didn’t want to be influenced by the film, but instead by the story alone and the direction it would take for the stage. The country-style power ballads are already loved over on Broadway and are bound to have a place in our hearts too when Pretty Woman: The Musical comes to London next year.
