Pretty Woman the Musical set for London opening in 2020

Pretty Woman composer/singer Bryan Adams has just told the Press Association that  the musical will be opening in the West End next winter. Adams said "It’s all set in motion now to  open in the UK in 2020. .It's going to Germany this year  opening in Hamburg in September and then  London in 2020 I'm excited about it."

PRETTY WOMAN: THE MUSICAL, has original music and lyrics by Grammy Award winner Bryan Adams and his longtime songwriting partner Jim Vallance, a book by Garry Marshall and the film's screenwriter J.F. Lawton, with direction and choreography by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell. It began performances at Broadway's Nederlander Theatre on  July 20th, 2018 and currently stars the UK's Samantha Barks and Andy Karl as Vivian and Edward (the roles played by Julia Roberts and Richard Gere in the film).

Based on one of the most beloved romantic comedies of all time, this modern spin on Cinderella is the story of Vivian, a spirited diamond in the rough who dreams of a better life. A star-crossed meeting with Edward, a shrewd corporate raider from New York who is lost in Hollywood, turns a simple business deal into a week of romance and a journey of self-discovery for both Vivian and Edward. This contemporary theatrical take on the iconic love story will sweep a new generation off their feet and make them believe in the power of "Happily Ever After."
