Entertaining, Funny, Romantic, Fluffy, Delightful

See it if You like the movie and are looking for a walk down memory lane! The music has a great pop beat to it. It’s light hearted romance and so fun!

Don't see it if The movie means a lot to you, not as great an adaption as other Jerry Mitchell shows like leagally Blonde or Kinky Boots. Also very fluffy.

Don't see it if If you dont like the movie, then this is not for you. Also if you are a fan of Jason Danielly’s singing, he does very little singing.

See it if If you liked the movie Pretty Woman, you will thoroughly enjoy this musical. If you are a Bryan Adams fan, you will also enjoy this show.

See it if You enjoy the original movie.You want a fun, fluffy, don't-think-too-hard night out. You're a fan of the cast, particularly the leads.

Don't see it if You want something innovative. This is basically the movie on stage, with a middling score and an amazing cast.

Absolutely delightful

See it if You are/were a fan of the movie. I bought the tickets for my daughter's (37th) birthday in April. She has been a fan of the movie forever.

Delightful, Entertaining, Romantic, Quirky

See it if This is the ideal Broadway experience for someone who is looking for a fun time at the theatre. Some great musical moments in the show.

Don't see it if You're looking for an artistic, high-brow piece of theatre. The show is not trying to be something it's not - its an entertaining musical.

Delightful

See it if If you love the movie then you will like the show which for the most part follows the movie in its entirety.

Don't see it if If you are looking for a play that is more than just musical fluff. It was disappointing in that character tension was never established

Don't see it if You're not a fan of basically adapting a film scene for scene and translating it for the stage.

Also Definitely worth seeing – especially if you’re a fan of the movie. I p... Read more Read less

"Ms. Barks is clearly a talented singer and actress...she has been given no chance to banish stardust memories of the woman who created her part. Directed and choreographed as if on automatic pilot by Jerry Mitchell. Its creators have hewed suffocatingly close to the film’s story, gags, and dialo...

"Mostly just a dutiful replica of the movie...Not only does this approach miss an opportunity to rethink the story’s sugar-daddy fantasy in a deeper way, it also gets stale fast; this ain’t our first time on Rodeo Drive...Adams and Vallance’s music does its job, but has a Broadway show ever had l...

"'Pretty Woman: The Musical' has plenty of problems outside of its politics...It’s the kind of lifeless clunker that makes your heart go out to its actors...It’s more concerned with checking the boxes of all the movie’s most famous moments than it is with telling us anything new about these chara...

"Reports that the creators...were 'reshaping' the story for the #MeToo era have been greatly exaggerated...But Lawton and the film’s director, the late Garry Marshall, who co-wrote the book, have clearly taken a 'don’t mess with success' approach...Samantha Barks is agreeable as Vivian, and Andy ...
