About the Event
Be swept off your feet by a very unusual love story. The modern classic ‘Pretty Woman’ arrives on Broadway in a new, and exciting musical version, with a score by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance. Drawing inspiration from the iconic film, this Tony-winning show explores the ancient ‘Boy meets Girl’ story from a very different angle...
Beverly Hills comes to Broadway, as uptight businessman Edward meets working girl Vivian. Neither of their lives will ever be the same again. Bringing together the best of Hollywood, Broadway and contemporary music, missing this sensational musical would be a very big mistake. Huge, even!
From its spiritual home on New York’s ‘Great White Way’ the Broadway musical has been packing the audiences in for over a century. Legendary writers such as Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Andrew Lloyd Webber, Jerry Herman, and Stephen Sondheim, or partnerships like the Gershwins , Lerner & Loewe, Rogers & Hammerstein, Kander & Ebb, and Boublil & Schönberg, have created spectacular vehicles for star performers – so-called ‘triple threats’, who sing, dance, and act with equal talent – and powerful ensembles alike. Running the gamut from spectacular to stark and restrained, musical theatre can be frivolous, but has a long history of tackling serious social and political issues. Always prime for reinvention, alongside Broadway’s perennial hits and classics, musical theatre has a new vigor in the twenty first century, as live-action Disney, rap and ‘jukebox’ shows light up new theaters, and attract new audiences. The Show will indeed Go On!
Pretty Woman is a romantic comedy based on the classic movie. It deals with adult themes and situations.
