There’s a big new show coming to London. In fact, not just big, huge.

In case you hadn’t guessed from the clue, Pretty Woman The Musical is coming to London for a limited run!

Performing at the Piccadilly Theatre from Valentine’s Day 2020 (so that’s next year’s gift sorted), the show will run for 46 weeks. A stage adaptation of the successful film starring Julia Roberts and Richard Gere, casting will be announced soon!

The show features original music and lyrics by Grammy Award winner Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance, a book by Garry Marshall and the film’s screenwriter J.F. Lawton, it is directed and choreographed by the two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell (Kinky Boots).

Speaking about the announcement, American film producer Paula Wagner said,

“It is really wonderful that UK audiences will get to experience Pretty Woman: The Musical at the Piccadilly Theatre next year. Bryan and Jim’s original score for the show brings an electric new dimension to Garry Marshall and J.F. Lawton’s beloved film. We were so fortunate to have Garry working with J.F. on the book of the show. They really captured the essence of Pretty Woman, and along with Jerry’s skilful direction and choreography, this classic love story really has become a great night out at the theatre. 2020 also marks 30 years since the release of the film, and I can’t think of a better place than the Piccadilly Theatre to celebrate!”.

Featured in the musical will be Roy Orbison and Bill Dee’s international smash hit song ‘Oh, Pretty Woman’ which inspired one of the most beloved romantic comedy films of all time. The film was an international smash hit when it was released in 1990, becoming the third highest-grossing film worldwide that year. The film still holds the highest number of tickets in the US for a romantic comedy.

Already a success over the pond, Pretty Woman The Musical had its world premiere at Chicago’s Oriental Theatre in March 2018 before transferring to Broadway until August this year. The German production will open in Hamburg on 29 September and the US tour will begin in September 2020. During its Broadway run, the show broke the box office record a total of four times and won three Audience Choice Awards.

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.
