This is one time where all the hype and hoopla is not only justified, but doesn't come close to suggesting the grandeur of the work on stage. A Triumph.

If it was possible to like... or rather, LOOOVE... the Broadway musical 'KINKY BOOTS' even more so than one already does, the lovable, fresh-faced cast of the musical's current national tour is certainly making a really good case for it.

Why See Pretty Woman?

A Broadway-bound world premiere

Pretty Woman walks down the street and into the Oriental theatre in spring 2018 as the hit 1990 romantic comedy gets a very welcome musical adaptation, starring Samantha Barks (Les Miserables, stage & screen) and Steve Kazee. Lovingly overseen by the film's' director Garry Marshall before his untimely passing, his vision is fulfilled by libretto scribe J.F. Lawton, director and choreographer Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots) and rock royalty Bryan Adams and writing partner Jim Vallance, who'll provide an all-new score. Promising to delve deeper into the characters of Vivian and Edward whilst keeping the charm, heart, and humor of the original, this exciting venture is sure to top must-see lists of fans and critics alike!

Even though we all know Pretty Woman, the creators of this upcoming musical know the original story line won't go down to well with modern audiences. Therefore, the Vivian we once knew will now be a stronger, and a more independent heroine for the 21st century.

Captivating audiences across the world with her performance as Eponine in Les Miserables (2012), Samantha Barks brings her enviable voice and verve as Vivian. We can't wait to see her spar against Katzee who honed his live theatre skills as Guy in the Grammy Award winning Once.

What is Pretty Woman About?

A ruthless and driven business tycoon, Edward specialises in taking over businesses and then selling them off, piece by piece, totally unsympathetic to the hundreds of employees' lives he destroys. During a trip to LA, he finds himself without a partner for series of schmaltzy functions, so hires a sex worker to act as his escort. The lady he chooses is Vivian, who much like Edward, goes about her work with a clinical detachment.

As their week together progresses, this usually isolated couple find themselves utterly comfortable in each other's company, and discover that they might just be falling for each other. Can this blossoming romance turn both of their lives around?

Did you know?

Originally intended as a darker exploration of sex work and class, the movie underwent many changes before becoming the classic we love today, helped in part by the undeniable chemistry between Richard Gere and Julia Roberts.
