MEH

It was just ok. Like other reviewers, high school production at best. The set was underwhelming. Lead performances completely lacked chemistry....instead they were going through the motions. The connection and passion what was supposed to bring them together was completely lacking. The actor's who played Kit and the narrator - outstanding. Multiple comments that the women who played Kit should have been cast for Vivian's role. It was, just, ok.

WAS THIS REALLY NECESSARY?

I didn't have high hopes for this in the first place. Maybe I don't understand the appeal of reimagining a 90's romcom into a 2 hour musical. But good grief, I needed some wine and crackers to go along with the sheer CHEESINESS of this thing. The acting was so overblown and over the top, it felt like a play for children. Olivia Valli's portrayal was so obnoxious and over the top, it was completely unbelievable that she had charm enough to win the affections of anyone, let alone a billionaire. The movie worked because even though the 2 main characters were from opposites sides of the tracks, there was a something endearing about both of them that allowed them to fall for each other. I never would have imagined that these rolls required any kind of gravitas to pull off, but apparently they do because the absence of it is on full display on this production. The 2 stars are for Amma Osei's voice. Amazing.

PRETTY BORING

Pretty Woman is my all time favorite movie. I just could not get into the show, the actress who played Vivian was too over the top. My husband and I left at intermission. It was also distracting having the ushers walking up and down the aisles during the show with paddles saying wear your mask.

NOT WORTH IT

The set was poor. High school production has better set. Vivian was a little over the top. Her voice was mediocre. Country song?! Really? Kit had a phenomenal voice. Opera was awe-inspiring. Just wasn’t worth the time and money spent. Disappointing.

PRETTY BAD

The supporting cast was great, the set was great but I just could not get over Vivian's over the top and plain out bad acting. It was hard to enjoy the show when the main character was obnoxious and not at all charming. The Kit character was great and so were so many other roles. The music was meh not horrible but nothing that move me.

STAY HOME AND WATCH THE MOVIE

Oh my…such a disappointment. Sure, she’s not Julia Roberts, and he’s not Richard Gere…I get it. Those are big shoes to fill, but there’s no chemistry between Edward and Vivian on this set. Kit’s role is well done as is the hotel manager. Some beautiful voices, but beautiful voices can’t fill the chemistry void. Take a pass on this one…pop some corn and watch the iconic movie in the comfort of your home for free!
