The Musical Interpretation of The Film 'Pretty Woman'

downloadDownload printPrint

Go back in time and fall in love all over again with the nostalgic theater adaptation of the classic Julia Roberts and Richard Gere film, Pretty Woman. Experience the whirlwind love story, similar to the Cinderella concept where a prince charming falls in love with a commoner. Trought this musical you can get to know more about the theatre show that is taking Broadway by storm with their powerhouse creative team and an amazing musical score that will definitely lift your spirits and make you want to fall in love again, according to the website of Broadway. 

The Business-centric and the Sex Worker Unlike the typical Cinderella story, Pretty Woman offers a different approach to how its main characters started to build an emotional connection before realizing that they both loved each other. Edward is a successful businessman who hires sex worker Vivian. They front a fake relationship which doesn’t require emotional attachment (sexual connection only). Edward showers Vivian with anything that money can buy and, in return, she serves him sexually. As the story goes, Edward and Vivian are able to discover many things about themselves and, according to the article of the New York Theatre Guide, the two unknowingly rescue each other from their worlds. Edward’s connection with Vivian allows him to let go of the suffocating world he’s in, while Vivian is able to transform into something that is more than her work. 

The powerhouse cast and creatives the acclaimed artist Samantha Barks who performed as Eponine in the film adaptation of Les Miserables together with Hugh Jackman, Amanda Seyfried, and Anne Hathaway is playing the role of Vivian Ward. According to the website of Pretty Woman the Musical, Samantha Barks received various awards from different award-giving bodies like the Breakout Award from Glamour magazine, the Best Female Newcomer from the Empire Awards, and a nomination for Young British Performer of the Year by the London Critics Circle. Andy Karl who was just recently awarded an Olivier Award is playing the role of the businessman Edward Lewis. He is also known for his work in the independent film Faraway Eyes with Christina Ricci and as a comedy pilot in Staties. According to the musical’s website, Andy Karl won a Drama Desk award and three Tony Award nominations. 

A musical is not complete with an amazing music lineup that will make it memorable and loved by many. It’s a good thing, then, that another world-class artist is in the team to take charge of the musical’s music and lyrics. It’s none other than the acclaimed singer and songwriter Bryan Adams, who achieved #1 status in over 40 countries the past few years, as shared by the website of Pretty Woman the Musical.  

The musical runs for 2 hours and 30 minutes with 15-minute intermission as shared in the website of Pretty Woman the Musical. It is located in the Netherlands theatre and open from Monday to Saturday from 10 in the morning until 8 in the evening, while on Sundays, they are open from 12 noon to 6 pm.
