MISSED OPPORTUNITY START TO FINISH

You brace yourself whenever they start singing because the play comes to a screeching halt every time. Seriously, it feels like there are only two songs in this musical: ensemble and ballad. So many lost opportunities for fun duets between Vivian and Edward to show their push pull, or musics numbers dedicated to important scenes instead of making them little in between. Kit outshines Vivian easily. All the teeth are taken out of Vivian. The creepy lawyer is more charming than Edward. Vivian had more chemistry pantomiming a conversation with Morse than singing a duet with Edward.

HORRIBLE

Left at intermission…Kit’s voice was great- only redeeming thing about this show.

HORRIBLE

Worst musical ever. Vivienne was pitchy, and Edward’s voice was weak and mealy. If I could give this negative stars I would. Choreography was simplistic. At one point I laughed out loud because I was so embarrassed for the cast. My high-school daughters could perform better than this.

HORRID

I was date of very close friend whose husband died unexpectedly a few weeks ago, so the ticket didn’t cost me anything but time. So wished I could have left at intermission. By far the worst play I have ever seen, and I’ve been a frequent theater goer for 50 years. Spare yourself, even if you paid for the tickets.

DISAPPOINTMENT

This is probably the worst play I’ve ever seen. I am a big fan of Pretty Woman and the leads couldn’t be more inadequate. The leads for Vivian & Edward didn’t seem to have enough talent, can’t dance, sing or act, excruciatingly awful. There was zero chemistry between the two lead actors. The song selection fell short in engaging the crowd. This play would allow for a lot of witty jokes which it didn’t get. The play being in LA and the plot taking place in Hollywood should have given the opportunity for a stellar show. I was very disappointed with the lack of prop decor, could have done so much better! Lastly, everyone in the supporting cast was absolutely amazing! Very talented, the Opera singer was out of this world phenomenal. The theme song should be planned at least 3 times throughout the play, we all love the song! and it would have set the mood from beginning to end. For theater you need to command a presence when you hit the stage, the leads fell incredibly short in doing so.

I’VE NEVER WALKED OUT OF A SHOW…

….until now. Left at intermission when I just knew I couldn’t make it through a second act. The songs, lyrics, lines, staging, and performances were abysmal. No chemistry between the leads, no motivations for movement, high school quality choreography and flat singing. I was flabbergasted. Thank goodness for the bellhop who sprinkled a little joy onstage, but wow. I just……can’t.
