'Pretty Woman: The Musical' features direction and choreography by two-time Tony Award winner Jerry Mitchell ('Kinky Boots,' 'Legally Blonde,' 'Hairspray'), and a book by the movie’s legendary director Garry Marshall and screenwriter J.F. Lawton.
See it if you want to see a faithful (in story) musical adaptation of the 1990 film, and you really enjoy the cheesy AC music of Bryan Adams.
Don't see it if you wish to avoid a charmless Vivian, chemistry-free leads, out-of-touch book, vapid, generic score, cheap-looking sets & lazy choreography.
See it if you want a regressive musical with an inscrutable plot directed in a very workmanlike, movie-aping manner
Don't see it if you look for originality, consistent themes, good scores, or good American accents
See it if you are a huge fan of the movie & want a shot-for-shot replication. There are some standout performers, but not enough to lift this show.
Don't see it if you don't want something so incredibly average, that it becomes bad. The score, staging, dancing, & plot are unbelievably bland.
See it if Your ticket is free and you have nothing better to do 🤷🏻♂️ The bellhop was amusing.
Don't see it if You want memorable music at all :(. There were a few scattered cute moments. But mostly it was just boring and pointless.
See it if you have a friend obsessed with the movie. This will cure them. You have a friend resistant to opera. This may lure them.
Don't see it if you're enamored of flashy sets (none here), big B'way voices (lots of vocal fry), and romance (no chemistry). It is oddly capitalist though.
See it if you like fluffy shows that parrot the movie they were based on.

See it if You’re a fan of the movie and know it by heart.
Don't see it if You want something updated. Everything feels outdated and awful. Some of the cast was good, but even the production seemed cheap
See it if If you love Bryan Adams (as I do), you'll adore every guitar riff. The leads are excellent and have amazing chemistry.
Don't see it if If you have the original film memorized, the interruption of the songs may seem strange and unnecessary.
See it if you like Samantha Barks. She's amazing.
Don't see it if you want to enjoy your time in the theatre. Some movie/musicals translate well. This did not. There was no attempt to add originality.

See it if you're a fan of the movie who doesn't really care about musicals and just wants to see a staged version of the movie.

See it if you really, really like the movie and are not going to sit and analyze the text while watching.

Don't see it if you wanted to see some thing that's even remotely a good musical. everything about it sucks, except for Andy Karl.
